BBC News - U2's Bono criticised for endorsing Shoot the Boer song (external - login to view)
The Irish pop star Bono has been criticised for apparently endorsing a song which include the lyric: "Shoot the Boer".
The U2 front man said the song, which was sung during the fight against apartheid, had its place, like music supporting the Irish Republican Army.
His comments came at the start of U2's tour of South Africa.
But callers to local radio stations said the song was designed to stir up racial hatred.
"That's hate speech. They don't know our history at all," said one caller to a South African radio talk show.
I wonder if he'd endorse those names, because they had their place in time?
