Do you even know who Nelson Mandela is or why he was locked up in the first place? He co founded the militant group Umkhonto we Sizwe that acted as the armed wing from the ANC.
In his I am prepared to die speech he said.
"At the beginning of June 1961, after a long and anxious assessment of the South African situation, I, and some colleagues, came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be unrealistic and wrong for African leaders to continue preaching peace and non-violence at a time when the government met our peaceful demands with force.
This conclusion was not easily arrived at. It was only when all else had failed, when all channels of peaceful protest had been barred to us, that the decision was made to embark on violent forms of political struggle, and to form Umkhonto we Sizwe. We did so not because we desired such a course, but solely because the government had left us with no other choice. In the Manifesto of Umkhonto published on 16 December 1961, which is exhibit AD, we said:
So no, he was not Mother Teresa, he was a freedom fighter. One who the US declared a terrorist and on the US watch list until removed in 2008.
No different from Mamma Assata Shakur.
We’re basically watching history repeat itself.
History classes are FAILING the hell outta folks.
It is difficult to teach people what they don’t want to learn.
ASSATA SHAKUR KILLED SOMEBODY. WHY WOULD U PARDON HER?!? NELSON MANDELA WAS PEACEFUL, THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF SHAKUR.
"Nelson Mandela was not just a hero of our time, but a hero of all time." says Cameron 2013.
"Hang Nelson Mandela" said Cameron 1985.
Never trust a duplicitous fucking Tory.
It is time…
"it is time that we reframe the correlational data of higher weight and health problems as evidence of a health disparity, rather than prima facie evidence of higher weight being a disease. If higher weight people don’t fare as well, it is a failure of health care and health policy, as we have clear data on medical bias, the health effects of stigma, and the effects of racism and poverty that impact higher-weight people disproportionately."
