Taking in the Controversies About Nelson Mandela

46664 Concert: In Celebration Of Nelson Mandela's Life - PerformanceI see many opinions related to the passing of Nelson Mandela. Some people have promoted him to sainthood and Messiahship, while those on the opposite far end see him as terrorist with a better success rate than Osama bin Laden. I read reports of some of the violent methods used by the non white people under apartheid in South Africa’s African National Congress and backed by one of its leaders, Nelson Mandela for  fighting against the racial apartheid (which was worse than legal segregation in this country), and I am not excusing it. I also know that Mr. Mandela was politically and economically on the side of communism. I also cannot go with that.

I saw a Mandela meme which I think is ridiculous. According to the meme list, Mr. Mandela is responsible for an awful lot of bombings during his 27 years in prison. There is no source given to back up any of the stated bombings. Really! How can Mr. Mandela be responsible for all those bombings while serving time in an apartheid prison? What does that say about the security in that prison if he was successful throughout his 27 years in causing bombings in cities and towns in South Africa? Oh, if you clicked on the ‘meme list’ link and think you came across a comment that sounds like it came from me about that Mandela meme, you are correct. I got a few likes, but nobody as yet give an answer to my question on that page.
