    Outrage at Racist Ringtone in South Africa

    By Mohammed Allie
    BBC News, Cape Town

    A racist mobile phone ringtone has been condemned by South Africa authorities in the city of Cape Town.

    The lyrics are in Afrikaans and advocate violence against black people in derogatory terms.

    The lyrics of the song, according to a local newspaper, refer to a black person as a "kaffir" - an outlawed and derogatory term in South Africa.

    It describes how such a person should be tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged around while driving.

    The chorus has a blatantly racist tone and ends with a call to set dogs on the black person.

    Some people, amused at the lyrics, have passed it on via wireless technology.

    But it has outraged a growing number of South Africans, including human rights activists, since its existence has become public knowledge.

    And they wonder why South Africans hate them and are committing violence against them.

    are they doing anymore to our people in south africa than america is doing to our people here? My King has already informed me of this countries role in south africa, so maybe i'm a little confused at how you can see in someone elses yard what you can't see in your own?
