JOHANNESBURG - South Africa has recently been rocked by several racist incidents.

Many have been calling for action to be taken.

Government has come up with a rather different approach.

The Department of Arts and Culture has launched an anti-racism song, with the hope of quelling tensions and addressing the racial divide.

“We need action, we need to dance, war dance against racism, and we need to hear music against racism.

"We need to hear poems," said Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa.

But is this song going to heal a nation struggling to overcome prejudice?
