Good morning, Netizens...

Mourners give the Nazi salute as a hearse containing the body of slain white supremacist leader Eugene Terre'Blanche drives by in South Africa yesterday. The South African white supremacist was buried on Friday, six days after being hacked to death by two black farm workers.


In South Africa, until his death, Terre'Blanche was the founder and leader of the AWB (Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging) which, in English is Afrikaner Resistance Movement, a separatist neo-Nazi organization dedicated to the creation of an independent Boer-Africaner organization. According to several sources, 7% of South Africa still supports this separatist organization.


Although the AWB proclaims they are not practicing racial hatred, this picture is indeed troubling.


Does this picture, with the Nazi salutes and liberal use of the Swastika on the flag of the AWB have implications in the United States?
