South Africa Police Investigate Racist Facebook picture Last Updated : 29 Aug 2011 10:56:39 AM IST
Authorities in South Africa are investigating an image posted on Facebook of a white man with a hunting rifle and a big grin kneeling in a classic hunter's pose over his "prey" ? what appears to be the lifeless body of a black boy.
Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa's has ordered an investigation into the matter and asked the man in it to come forward and declare whether the picture is a fake or has been doctored.
Shocked child care organisations described the picture as "sickening and disgusting". "This hate image incites racism that almost all South Africans have fought so hard to eradicate," the director of Women and Men Against Child Abuse, Miranda Jordan, told the weekly Sunday Times, which used the photograph on its front page.
The picture has been up on Facebook for more than a year already and the profile of the user is "Eugene Terrorblanche", a play on the name of right wing Afrikaner leader Eugene Terreblanche, who was killed on his farm last year.
Although the user has 590 Facebook friends, not one has condemned the picture, prompting child care authorities to
remind them that any South African who has viewed the picture and not fulfilled the obligation reporting it to the police in
terms of the Children's Act, would be equally culpable if the picture was genuine.
