Trial Date Set for South Africa ‘Racist’ Student Video

Posted February 24, 2010 12:38 pm By Deirdre B Pride

BBC News Reports:

Four white students accused of making a racist video in South Africa will face trial, after attempts failed to resolve the matter out of court.

The video, which caused a racial storm in 2008 allegedly shows the four forcing five black cleaners to eat meat soaked in urine.

The Bloemfontein Magistrates court has set down the case for the end of July.

Racism remains a sensitive issue in South Africa, where black people were oppressed under white-minority rule.

The four students RC Malherbe, Johnny Roberts, Schalk van der Merwe and Danie Grobler are said to have made the video in 2007 while living at the university’s now closed Reitz men’s residence.

In the video the campus employees – four women and a man – were also allegedly forced to drink full bottles of beer and perform athletic tasks.

No restoration

During Wednesday’s brief appearance, the state announced that the mediation process between the students and the cleaners had failed and that the court needed to resolve the matter.

The court had previously suggested that the parties go through a process of “restorative justice” – where people are encouraged to reconcile rather than seeking punishment for their aggressors.

No reasons were given for the failure but a report was handed to the court.

Fifteen years after apartheid ended, racism remains a problem in some areas.

The BBC’s Pumza Fihlani in Johannesburg says student residences in the University of Free State in Bloemfontein are still divided along racial lines – reminiscent of South Africa’s apartheid past

The video is believed to have been recorded in protest against the university’s plans to racially integrate students’ residences.

‘Play-acting’

When it surfaced, it caused a national outcry and sparked numerous anti-racism protests.

The final extract of the film was the final nail in the coffin of the university’s image.

It shows a white male urinating on food, and then shouting “Take! Take!” in Afrikaans – apparently forcing the campus employees to eat the dirty food, and causing them to vomit.

The lawyers for two of the students down-played the incident last year, saying the video was “no more than play-acting”.

The trial is to begin on 27 July.

Kobe and Aston Martin inspired another shoe that was fuel by this video below.

Now Nike and Kobe have stepped their game up several notches by releasing a more expensive prototype for 2010, called the Nike Hyperdunk.  Not sure about the price because I’m hearing different prices that range from 500 to 700 dollas a pair.  They ‘re only making 500 pairs.  Now the question is not would you rock these, but CAN you rock these?  Check’em out.

Talks of a Cavs’ Trade are Festering **Update**

Posted February 15, 2010 9:33 pm By Deirdre B Pride

A possible trade in the works is the talk of the Cleveland.  It could put Amar’e Stoudemire in Cavs’ gear. To get Stoudemire from Phoenix, up-and-coming player J.J. Hickson may have to go.   A trade will be a good look towards  getting a championship and may possibly entice LeBron  to re-sign.  The trade deadline is Thursday.

Update*  There was no practice today.  This leads to more speculation that something is brewing.  Last I heard was Zydrunas Ilgauskas and J.J. Hickson would go to Phoenix.  The Suns would likely release Ilgauskas after the trade, and he could sign back with the Cavaliers after 30 days.  HOT DAMN!!!
