    The silence is deafening, or is that defining?

    Back in 1990 on his visit to Boston , he sat in his plane for close to 2 hrs after landing.
    Because the State Police only sent white motorcycle troopers. There was a urgent call placed out for an equal number of black motorcycle officers . The only black officers were local cops , many who were off duty .

    Before you get all wet about mandela's passing you might want to learn of his past dealings and affiliations. There is a show on TV soon about him. I'll watch it and see what they don't mention.

    Not a lot of activity on this thread.....I wonder why.
    I watched the show and, sure enough, there's some things that weren't mentioned.........

    Probably because everyone can see where this is going. But if you want to post more right wing hatred and bigotry, go ahead. It's a free country.

    I am already seeing everyone and his brother jumping on the Mandela bandwagon using his name to further their own interests. That totally disrespects him in my opinion.

    I believe this started with his family, as you indicated. I think it extends further to all which had contact with him in a disgusting contest of my experience was more relevant than your experience.

    Let's see SA today ; unemployment 24 % , government corruption is off the charts , and whites being murdered at alarming rates .
    Thanks Nelson .

    I haven't watched a news show in a few days....too much Mandela madness..... Who cares what Oprah or Maya Angelou or Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson thought of him. I heard part of Obama's thoughts about him.....(only because I couldn't get to the remote quick enough) and there were enough "I" s used to choke a horse.
    Also,the political cartoons have all been Mandela-themed....so I haven't posted any of them.

    Billy Graham is on his deathbed ........... he's more important IMO.

    So much hatred and bigotry from the right wing nut jobs on this site, it's very sad.

    There you go assuming. We never said anything racist. Only that there are people using his name to push their own agendas. If anything that makes them (and you) racist.

    Mandela was a communist.
    And how did he go from prison to being a multi millionaire?
    He was Castro's big buddy and heaped praise on the murdering destroyer of Cuba.
    SA went from the world's 7th largest economy to about the 26th.

    It's amazing.
    Obama can go to South America for the funeral of the dictator and then to SA for Mandela's funeral but he can't seem to honor the fallen American soldiers from the D-Day invasion.

    He's a true American Patriot........
