    A great man. RIP!







    *I left this thread up and didn't delete this one as dedication to Madiba, because like him sometimes you have to leave a legacy!

    Politics aside during his presidency anyone that stands up to oppression and injustice is a great man, especially in his earlier years!

    You have not been paying attention then. They have been talking about him for years vs Paul Walker and to be fare we are talking about local tragidy vs 1/2 way ariund the world what has been expected for a long time due to age and health issues.

    Noted. I was simply saying that in my young group of friends that Paul walker received much more attention jut because he was an actor compared to Nelson who changed the lives of millions.

    I think he means on the Internet and radio not actual news stations. I have to agree. If you watch the big news networks you will find Mandela stories but on the net much more about walker.

    There are also many other people who have help tens of thousands or more who we will never hear about. I think we will hear a lot more chatter about him over the next few days and weeks as media puts on little highlights of his life.

    Of course we will. He was a proud communist and the media loves and adores any one with that ideology. I've often wondered if he had been libertarian minded yet still sought out to end injustice for his people if he would have gotten any attention over here in the states? My guess, he would have been called a dangerous radical and maybe even a terrorist.

    Mugabe was much the same. Rhodesia had the highest standard of living in the world. They were able to feed all of there people plus they gave alot to most of africa. They were the bread basket of africa. Its not a issue of race. Its a issue of the western civialised world merging with native tribes who are starting to merge into western civilization. Thats why they were slowly bringing the vote to the black man. People just look at the colour of someones skin and claim rasict but its not. The proof is in the pudding that when colonization left africa the new republics all went down hill due to mass coruptions. Aftica still has a long way to go to form stable governments

    This guy wasn't the saint that the liberal media wants to make him out to be. He didn't go to prison for bullshit charges. This guy was a bad guy. He was no great civil rights activist like MLK or Ghandi. I'm sure you can youtube him singing hate songs.
