    Yes, Jamesfrmphilly....a tree has fallen ad I pray that there are
    those in Africa, who will plant and grow more trees to follow his
    footsteps.

    They (Black South Africans) must not fall backward ....forward movement, very boldly, organized, and together ....move forward!

    How many of YOU KNOW the real reason Nelson Mandela was freed?
    Why shouldn’t WE use Nelson Mandela’s death to promote the TRUTH as he tried to [which the mass media generally, their mass media specifically has so efficiently repressed to date] with regard to the manner in which thousands of Cubans paid with their lives to make political freedom a reality for non-whites in general, the indigenous peoples of African ethnicity specifically in Southern Africa?

    Haven’t you noted the manner in which their mass media TODAY is STILL attempting to say that Apartheid collapsed/Mandela was freed due to pressure/economic sanctions/white benevolence, which were a SHAM weren’t they in that the USA, UK and the west were covertly supporting South Africa’s Apartheid regime [a fact that only Maggie Thatcher was EVER honest about, with David Cameron part of a group of Conservative MP’s publicly lobbying for Nelson Mandela to be hanged] as opposed to the very comprehensive manner in which a modern white army was CRUSHED by a modern comparably equipped non-white/African army in Angola in 1987/8, breaking formal Apartheid in South Africa’s back?

    Were you all previously aware of the FACT that formal Apartheid in South Africa [its informal now like in the USA/UK and most of the West] only ended up reeling on the ropes due to the debacle that resulted from the South African Expeditionary Army assisting UNITA led by Jonas Savimbi forces push on Angola’s capital Luanda, being stopped by the MPLA Cuban coalition’s forces at Cuito Carnevale in 1987; when the Cuban piloted MIG’s achieved air superiority, along with the Soviet tanks driven by the coalition’s forces encircling the South African Expeditionary Army/UNITA counter offensive at T’Chipa in 1988 was the knockout blow, wasn’t it?

    When the Neo-NAZI White Supremacist racist Afrikaner NUTCASES tried to regroup, beat the count, the far more astute than most white South African youth cut them down, by refusing to be conscripted/recruited en mass into the bloodbath Angola was poised to become for the South African Expeditionary Army [now that their dream of driving the 55 000 Cuban volunteers funded by Gaddafi/Libya assisting the MPLA into the sea, was in tatters]; which was when the negotiations to free Namibia/dismantle formal Apartheid began; in Cairo; all of which is general knowledge in Angola, Namibia and South Africa, but has NEVER EVER been published in the rest of the world, has it [isn’t the mass media spectacularly efficient at hiding white defeats]?

    Nelson Mandela, to his credit attempted to publicly project and promote the TRUTH as underlined by his first foreign trip after being freed from jail being to Havana, where he very publicly thanked Fidel Castro and the Cuban people for their HUGE contribution to the African liberation struggle generally, in South Africa specifically, what could he do about the Western mass media imposing a total NEWS BLACKOUT of both his visit and Fidel Castro's subsequent visit to South Africa [due to him accepting Nelson Mandela's so personal invitation] where he was thanked by the ANC in South Africa's Parliament [all of which you could have viewed for yourself up until recently on You Tube/but those videos have since been deleted]?

    When THEY attempted to challenge Nelson Mandela with regard to this trip to very personally thank Fidel Castro and the Cuban people for their so HUGE contribution to him eventually being freed from prison; Nelson Mandela said “You cant tell me who my friends are”!

    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

    Mr. Orisons,

    Don't bother to rant as a reply to what I feel about MR.
    MADELA ...
    Yes, since attending oldsoul's classes and the attention
    given to Mr. Madela in the threads, especially those of Bro. Clyde
    Coger, and many others here....

    I feel I know why he was freed, and what he used his freedom to attain.

    So don't use up your purple ink on me, it doesn't matter what you
    say....

    Your opinions are just that.....YOUR OPINIONS!

    BTW, do you wish Madeba to have no place in history because he said..."You
    can't tell me who my friends are"?

    Madeba is gone, dead and buried....let him go and rest in peace!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Did you see the funeral Sunday morning?

    It was a beautiful service. The speakers were very informative and some of Madiba's closest friends.

    Qunu is the perfect resting place. A lot of people don't really understand Mandela and his spirit of forgiveness. But that is the spirit of Ubuntu., the spirit of his Ancestors. The Thembu elders and the Bonaabakulu among whom he now rests. Madiba's main goal upon his release from prison was to unify his homeland in Transjei which had been transformed into a semi independent Bantustan. As president his ending of apartheid was to unite the Xhosa and Zulu kin which has been divided since the first intrusion of the Boars. He remained rooted in his family traditions above any political ideology and that's what I appreciated about him most of all.

    Bro. Omowale, I too felt the services were so beautiful and well presented.

    My only complaint is...why do commentators think we want to hear them, when we tune in to share in such special celebrations. We
    missed so much the speakers had to say because of them.


    I just heard it reported on CBS news that Pres. Zuma will unveil a 30 ft. statute
    on Monday of Mandela, in the capitol of Pretoria. The very place Madela became
    President.

    How exciting!!

    The commentators (virtually all British) were very annoying but that's to be expected of BBC which had exclusive rights to the broadcast.

    Greetings Omowale Jabali,:)

    I agree with you ... the Brit's (pundits) were super annoying ... but here's the SABC TV video of the pre-home-going service, the actual service (as much as allowed) & the post-commentary ... for our beloved "Madiba" !!!
