    re: Nelson Mandela admitted to hospital in 'serious condition' [W:47:W:117]

    Those who have even been around Mandella can't help be be awed by the man. The world will be mush poorer when he leaves this mortal world and I can only hope that his goodness will live on for generations to come.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    In a way, yes. It was what replaced white Apartheid.....Black racism.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Actually, I'm nobody to be lecturing anybody. I was just thinking how those "witch is dead" comments immediately after Thatcher died seemed pretty cold.

    You mean when he presented the Rugby World Cup Trophy to the Afrikaner captain, wearing his Jersey?

    Or when he said "courageous people do not fear forgiving, for the sake of peace."?

    Whites still rule most sectors it's just the poorer labourers now have to compete with blacks which can do the same thing and as a country South Africa is growing with both whites and blacks, the ANC may have some racist policies and are corrupt but there are other parties in South Africa like the DA which have proven themselves to be very effective at government.

    Then why is the country of South Africa such a disaster?

    I cannot logically expect a man to be able to completely control his thousands, perhaps even millions, of followers. Yes, there was violence. It was unfortunate.

    But what was the other option? Apartheid?

    Neither action was perfect, but one was by far the lesser of two evils.

    You could very well be correct, however, what that country has today is abject failure of government.
