The Twitter Mandela Hall Of Shame
When the right side of history doesn’t forget.
This is beautiful. Seen so many quotes oft repeated by the news media and politicians both since his passing, and yet somehow the most profound and critical of the US and its policies are conveniently glossed over, This world did not deserve Mandela, but by God it sure needed him.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must 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, Long Walk to Freedom
Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
