    JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- The black man who leads the youth wing of South Africa's governing party has no right to sing a song some whites find offensive, a judge said Monday.

    The judge ruled that while such anthems had their place during apartheid, they constitute hate speech in a society now struggling to redefine relations between the races.

    Monday's ruling comes four months after hearings in the hate speech trial of Julius Malema that were broadcast live on national television. The court case is separate from Malema's ongoing African National Congress disciplinary hearings, which also have drawn wide attention in South Africa.

    While Monday's judgment could be seen as a setback for the embattled Malema, the lightning-rod figure might use it to rally support from South Africans who see "Shoot the Boer" as part of the heritage of the anti-apartheid movement. "Boer" means farmer in the language of South Africa's Dutch descendants known as Afrikaners.

    what folks should be surpirsed about is that the ANC allowed them to pull that stunt and foolishness in a black nation!!!!!

    And that is what happens when we do not think RACE FIRST!!!

    That young brother should be president and there should be a "African Spring" on African social networks all over the southern nations of Africa to give him support

    Might as well refer to it as a white nation; this is the same president that designated a group of invading whites as an "indigenous african" tribe..smh.

    I dont think that after 50 years of colonization these college educated black youth are ignorant of the mchine they are up against,
    nor do I think being punk hearted or fear of death is any longer a part of their vocabulary
