I agree that main stream media feeds us what they think we should hear. There are some folks out there that have different views. Not saying the other folks are right or wrong but they are different.
What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

There was a very dark side prior to him becoming President. Not one mention of what went on in the late 80's. Bank accounts of whites stolen etc. Every single bank transaction under the microscope. A simple desire as a contractor building out the power grids to send a few pounds to your elderly parents not in South Africa was not simple. People who were skilled earned their paycheck etc still have money that they can't access in South Africa. I was curious about a date and tracked when my uncle left and decided on a 4 week break that it was dangerious to return. It was August 1989. It is 2013 and he still can't get his money out.

They just paused for a moment of silence for Mandela before the start of the Philly/Detroit game. WTF??

Anyone with African blood of any degree is the new royalty of the USA ( jmho ). Especially after Obama was elected according to our news media. Of course this does not apply in some countries. I never get to be royalty because I'm a really mixed up mixed breed tic

I for one cannot imagine what it would be like to live under apartied and since I am but a human being, reserve any and all judgement on what people had to do to change it. Look at the whole of his life and then form an opinion. After 27 years in prison, he had evey right to be a bitter, vengful man and choose instead a path of peace and reconciliation. No saint, but a pretty good human being. And a person who had an huge impact on a country and the world.
And I have to smile when the uber right goes on the attack as Newt and Ted praise Mandela and are castrated for it. They love to eat there own.
