    While I didn't agree with some of his politics, you have to admire a man who didn't seem consumed by bitterness over his treatment by the apartheid nationalist party

    Before Mussolini invented fascism, he was a socialist/communist. He use to be the editor of Avanti.

    Before this thread devolves further and further and further in hatred and political pettiness and bickering I'd like to say the world lost a giant of a man today. We could use more people in this world like Nelson Mandela.

    I am greatly saddened by the passing of this great man. His contribution to his country, and to the world as a whole, cannot be overestimated. Decades of suffering could not snuff out the light of love in his heart for his people, nor taint his forgiveness for those who had so grievously wronged him. RIP, Mr. Mandela. Your greatness is your legacy, and will not be forgotten.

    Not as bad as 1/4 of all the women in South Africa have been raped.

    South Africa after apartheid has become known as the "Rape Capitol of the World."

    >" Lizette Lancaster, manager of the ISS Crime and Justice Information Hub, says there are many complex reasons South Africa has such a high sexual offence rates. The armed struggle against apartheid and the violent backlash and suppression that followed have led to a normalization of violence in South African society, she said...


    “Rape is one of the most under-reported crimes in South Africa,” noted the NGO coalition Shukumisa. It points to research, conducted in Gauteng in 2010, that found one-quarter of women questioned in the study “had been raped in the course of their lifetimes, while almost one in 12 women had been raped in 2009..."<

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Well seeing as he got off pretty light for the numerous killings he was behind, how could he be bitter.
