The Afrikaners and British set up a horrible system of land theft and oppression against the vast majority black population.
Power had to be given back to the majority. You support representative democracy don't you? Would you prefer the majority black people still be oppressed by the minority white people?
Got to love the white middle class American judging a man like Mandela from behind his keyboard. I have actually been to his prison cell and how he came out of there and forgave white S.Africa I will never know, he freed his people and united a nation.
