South Africans have reacted with outrage and violence to a homemade video showing white college students forcing black employees to eat dirty meat and soup mixed with urine. The four Afrikaners, who don't disguise their faces, made the video to protest racial integration at the formerly all-white University of the Free State, reports the Mail & Guardian. Classes were suspended yesterday as staff and students marched in protest, and police fired stun grenades at one crowd.
The video has sparked a nationwide outcry. The country's Human Rights Commission has begun an investigation, and the youth wing of the ruling African National Congress called the students' behavior "barbaric." The university's student body has remained mostly white even after apartheid, and some students, despite the video, remain opposed to a mandatory integration program.
