    A tyrant is a tyrant. Seems like that's okay with you as long as it's the flip side of the coin?

    Mandela was one of the greatest freedom fighters the world has ever known. Today he rests with King and Gandhi.

    It does not matter what those who would call him 'terrorist' think, just as it did not matter what those who called King a 'communist' thought, just as it did not matter what those who tried to brand Gandhi as a 'tool of the Bourgeoisie' thought.

    History will write their stories, not detractors.

    What would heroes be if they didn't have enemies .. what would freedom fighters be if they didn't have detractors

    RIP Madiba

    Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter who brought White minority rule and apartheid to an end in South Africa.

    This made a lot of people happy and a few racists unhappy.

    Some people will always condemn a Black man who helps his people escape White oppression.

    Our founding fathers were men who fought for freedom for themselves, but not for the Black slaves that many of them owned.
