    It has been said that the treatment of African American residents in America is America's 'Apartheid'. If that is true, then who is America's Nelson Mandela -- the symble of Black liberation?

    Ediversity.......

    I have the highest, highest respect for Nelson Mandela
    Like Martin Luther King, he was willing to give his life
    for what he believed in. I don't really see a leader
    in America at this moment with that sort of spiritual drive.
    I believe it takes a special spirit inside to achieve those
    endeavors. I think a lot of black leaders now are driven
    by their own agendas. I respect Jesse Jackson, tho he has fallen short too(we are human), but he will step forward and make a positive difference. I do however, believe that very soon, maybe within my lifetime....someone will come forth. The atmosphere
    is primed for a revolution, to many bad things are occurring and if
    history is any indication, every uprising has happened through
    civil chaos.
