    The world lost an amazing leader today. Nelson Mandela was a wonderful example of peace, love and light amid times of trial, oppression and violence. May God bless him and his family.

    “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” – Nelson Mandela

    Walker going Fast & Furious, Mandela going Calm and acertive “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”. Nelson Mandela….

    No, Les, u really dont have idea who Mandela really was. Ure just another brainwashed moron. Communist, murderer, terrorist, thug, genocidal maniac, this is what Mandela really was. Welcome to the real world. Tragic when terrorists are considered “freedom fighters” and gullible idiots do not ever even bother to think. Definitely u havent ever heard about the genocide against the white South African ppl.

    On 31 January 1985, the State President of South Africa, Pieter W. Botha, speaking in Parliament, offered Mandela his freedom on condition that he “unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon”. Mandela rejected the offer. The rest is cretin propaganda which will be repeated over and over these days in the Zio-owned media.
