    Do you think Apartheid was a good idea? The people didn't think so. I'm guessing the only ones who did were De Klerk and the rest of the white ruling party.
    Before I answer your question, let me say that the rest of that paragraph is a lie. Apartheid was around long before De Klerk and was supported by millions of people.

    Secondly, do I think it was a good idea? Hmm... I'll answer that question by telling you about the greatest tragedy of the last 100 years in South Africa. It was not Mandela's death. It was not the invention of Apartheid. It was not the Sharpeville Massacre. It was District 6. Probably the greatest cultural melting pot in the history of planet earth, destroyed by bulldozers because of fear. I hope that gives you some perspective about me.

    I am old enough to have lived during and after Apartheid, seen the changes made, I think we're better off without it, thanks.

    He was a towering champion of freedom and human rights.

    Don't be distracted by the pig squeals of racists.
    Nelson Mandela was not Martin Luther King Jr.
    Nelson Mandela was not Gandhi.
    Nelson Mandela was not Jesus Christ.

    If anything he was Joan of Arc. The mascot which rallied a great army.

Those nasty blacks should just be thankful for all they had, given to them by the selfless whites and how DARE them that they fought back.

    Is that about it?
    No, sonhouse. Not at all. As usual you just don't get it at all. I'm glad to see some things never change. Try to follow the thread instead of inventing tangents.

    I'm South African and his behaviour is inexcusable! I am also white and feel that these comments are outrageous.

    From what ive seen on the television today, one thing is for sure, you and Hopscotch are certainly in the minority. The majority of the world today is mourning the passing of Mandela. And as far as asking me to apoligise to Hopscotch, get a life Huckleberry, because it isn't going to happen.
