    Supporters of ruling African National Congress (ANC) President Jacob Zuma await the arrival of ANC Youth League President Julius Malema at an election campaign event in Cape Town's Mitchells' Plain township, in this April 14, 2009 file photo. A study by the South African Institute of Race Relations said about half of today's youth faced a lifetime of unemployment. The born frees have been described as a ticking time bomb, needing massive social grants that could bankrupt the country, if the tide is not turned on unemployment. But if the power of the generation is harnessed, it could pay an enormous demographic dividend. To match Analysis SAFRICA-ANC/ REUTERS/Mike Hutchings/Files

    In this March 1, 2012 photo, Layne Ragsdale, member of a task force on race relations in Harrison, Ark., discusses the town's reputation of being dangerous for minorities. Most black people fled after race riots in 1905 and 1909. But the town desperately wants to overcome its past, and hopes that a better image will attract more residents and businesses.

    An African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) supporter protests outside the pary's headquarters in Johannesburg, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012 as they await the outcome of the ANCYL president Julius Malema's appeal hearing against being suspended by the ruling party. Malema, who has stirred furious debate over race relations and economic policy will get a chance to argue against a possibly career-ending suspension from the country's governing party. An ANC appeals body said that the violations had been proven, but that Malema should get another hearing on his punishment to make absolutely sure the highly watched process was seen as fair.
