If Nelson Mandela has taught us anything it's that imprisoning a black man for 27yrs with no reason is the best thing we can do for him.

I think Barack wanted to meet them so he could sign them up so they help sell Obamacare.

Mandela is 'in extremis'..he should be allowed to pass peacefully....he has contributed so much, shown so much wisdom, taught peace...those whom he has touched are indeed fortunate, and will hopefully show another generation that peace is possible~

Who spearheaded the resistance movement whilst Mandela did his jail time.
It was stated that Mandela is the reason for the removal of the racial divide in Sth Africa but I wonder if it wasn't De Klerk, who made it happen as then leader of the nation against the thoughts of those of his peoples.
Shouldn't there be statues for De Klerk ?

Obama is supposed to be our green president reducing climate change by decreasing carbon emissions. I guess that does not apply to his joy riding all over the world in Air Force One.
Then again he could bring back Mandela to the US for some Obamacare.

South African whites are at level 6 out of 8 by the international genocide watch project.
The liberal media keeps ignoring this story but thousands of whites in South Africa are being killed yearly by being hacked to death, children burned alive and women raped with broken bottles then tortured to death.
These murders are very violent and most victims are tortured to death regardless of age.
Many infants are wrapped in newspapers then soaked with kerosene and set on fire, recently 2 teenage girls were burned alive after being soaked in gasoline.

South Africa?

WTF do you want us to do about it?

That's S. Africa's problem.

Now if they had OIL, that might perk the politicians ears.

Kerosene?

Gasoline?

We'll be right over.

Please...try to read resent history books Sir.Mandela is a product of this oldest political organization in this continent of black people sir.

I know....I'm one of them sir..please don't be sad about this viseroy, sir.
