Obama is urging the world to act on Mandela's legacy by fighting inequality, poverty and racism. He says progress in the U.S. and South Africa mustn't cloud the fact there's still work to be done. He says South Africa shows us that we can change.

Sorry...he is a war criminal. Africa is not stable. IIRC, We just sent over about 5000 troops.

There’s a lot of that going around these days. People at my work give me strange looks when I talk about what a monster this guy really was.

That sounds like a direct threat to the white population of the United States.

Anyone with a half a brain knows why 0 and his fabulous MSM are promoting Mandela to make him look like the Communist Messiah - he’s black and he’s Communist and going to be used to promote socialism. 0 and his minions will rewrite his history denying the atrocious crimes he committed against humanity.

Yes, let’s all honor Mandela. Here’s a toast to the man who hastened the destruction of South Africa...a country that once was one of the most prosperous countries in the world now taken over by an illiterate, violent rabble who will destroy any vestiges of civilization inside thirty years.

on the Fox News"Special Report" show on December 5 , Jesse Jackson admitted Mandela told him that he was planning bombings of hospitals and schools in South Africa when he got caught.

hon, the projects are all around me

I’m close enough to hear the gunfire at night

and last I checked, they all seem to have heat.ac and running water unlike Soweto

not to mention swimming pool, basket ball courts, free school, Boys and Girls clubs aka homework centers loaded with computers and tutors, free summer camp, free feeding programs year round

here in the historic capital of MD our newest projects are called Bloomsbury Square- all brick waterfront townhomes, hardword floors, all appliances, central ac, parking for 2 vehicles each tenant, lovely elaborate playground on the waterfront, even cute little tool sheds in the back yards even through the city maintains all the grounds

Soweto? I think not

You nailed it. Tire necklaces loaded with gas, is not the act of a peaceful man.

Gandhi, I don’t know much about, King and Lincoln were all peaceful men. Lincoln was extremely upset over having to go to war with the South, but did it to preserve the UNITED STATES as one Country, undivided. Never heard King urge violence. And that is the era I grew up in.

Sure did hear the commie hippies urge violence though, and remember the Kent State incident, where our gov’t fired on protesting students, who were not committing acts of violence at that point. Not must difference than what happened under slick willie and reno.

Have to wonder where the other thousands of troops were sent in that God forsaken part of the world, there were 25 countries I think, and our Troops are already over deployed, over tired, and getting wiped out at twice the rate they were under GWB. STUPID ROE’s get Troops KILLED.

I got projects all around me in Annapolis

wth would I go drive through Anacostia except to stay on 295 or Pennsylvania Avenue?

and dude, no matter how BAD Anacostia is, they are not shacks and sheds

they have indoor plumbing and their kids go to school for free and they get 3 squares a day, year round..... the folks in soweto would LOVE to come to Anacostia

no, in SF kids don’t go to school unless they can scratch up tuition uniforms and books..... learn about “public education” in South Africa by watching the shows about oprah’s girl school there

the closest thing we have to soweto’s poverty is in appalachia, not anacostia

Now that the old commie terrorist has finally died, I predict that the next 2 to 3 years in South Africa will be filled with all measure of atrocities committed in the name of Mandela. I would not even be surprised if a genocide of white Afrikaners was to come to pass.

The closest thing we have to Soweto’s poverty is in Appalachia, not Anacostia.

Or on Indian reservations. "Coincidentally," all these places are Democrat-run, and have been for generations.

None of those three ever order the murders of opponents, as Mandela his repeatedly, often via savage necklacing.

What’s with this inequality kick Obama is on now? We keep hearing we need to fight income inequality.

Why?

I’m in favor of people who do dirty or more difficult jobs getting paid more than hired help at fast food places.

I’m in favor of highly skilled people such as neurosurgeons earning more than hotel maids.

Send me to re education camp right now. I’m clearly not with it in the era of Obama.......
