Moleke looks at the racial skills distribution in the labour market. She finds that deracialisation is happening but the pace is slow and uneven across sectors. An attempt is made to identify some of the reasons for this problem. While the reasons are not weighted in terms of importance, the need to focus on education is emphasised. She also argues that the apparent lack of an integrated and coherent approach to human resource development renders the equity laws and regulations powerless and ineffective.
