Al Sharpton Rips Historical US Policy Towards Nelson Mandela

Al Sharpton Rips Historical US Policy Towards Nelson Mandela

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 20:51:24 in Media

“The truth of the matter is that during the years Mandela was in prison the US government worked with the South African Government or put up with whatever they did. Mandela was considered to be a terrorist by this country for many years, take whatever issue you want with Al Sharpton, I don't care...but Mandela was not always praised by leaders of other countries and he was left for decades to rot in a prison because he believed in freedom and equality for all.”

“If Marijuana is decriminalized just as in the days of prohibition many of the issues (not all) associated with these cartels would decrease. I do think our resources (DEA) could be better served for homeland security with the potential of a dirty bomb in this scenario and similar ones - our borders need to be less porous.”

“I was going to mention the awful Go Daddy commercials - but you stated it well. They offered to replace the gun graphic with the American flag which I think was a good compromise. Perhaps it was too political? Not sure. Junk food ads are OK, fast food ads are OK ,when the number one killer of Americans is heart disease. Which do you have easier access to? Even kids? I am fine with a standard, but I am interested in the rhyme and reason behind it”

“You know absolutely nothing about me and obviously nothing about the law of physics...wow I forgot there are never any crashes during a NASCAR race because of the "skill" and "mega evolved" sports car...AND many years of driving accumulating "MEGA" skill eliminates ALL the variables associated with car crashes, I guess that is what the NHTSA states in its manual. If only a speeding ticket keeps you from speeding or driving with someone drunk, you have a whole lot to learn I just hope that some unsuspecting person isn't involved in any of your careless, cowardly and foolish acts should they take place on a public street.”

“I hope you no longer drive with someone who has "put away 8 beers" it is a danger to not only you but to the other people who are on the road, professional courtesy is the least of your worries when someone cares so little about life and gets behind the wheel. I am sick of road side memorials from devastated family members left to pick up the pieces.”

“Thank heaven for careful people like "Livinthelife"... not everyone has the skill to speed thru a neighborhood. I miss speeding in my British sportscar, I gave it up when I could no longer afford the possibility of a $$$$ ticket. You see, true skill does not crash a sportscar. My PT cruiser is not a sportscar,(but its cute) it does not handle like a sportscar and I probably couldn't even safely pass your boring ugly run-of-the-mill Toyota sedan. Skill plus mega-evolved sportscar does not crash a car, no matter how many beers. Those 2 guys were murdered and it is probably on tape on a satalite spy machine. Too bad the cops haven't found it and are not smart enough to even look for it.”

“This is disgraceful. The couple of times I actually shopped on Black Friday, there were no problems in my area. Folks were in line singing Christmas carols drinking coffee and we went into Best Buy one at a time. I have found that Christmas in July, Amazon and other home shopping services suit my family just fine. They usually announce the Video game systems a year in advance and gamestop will allow you to put down $$ on it to reserve from that far out. These folks are behaving like animals completely missing the point of the holiday season. They can keep it, there is no reason to behave this way. Thanks again Jeff Bezos...”

“I have helped Military widows who had more than a few children. I was glad to do it. I also donated to a Mother who took in children from a relative who could not care for them. I do not know this woman or how she came to be in this situation. On this Thanksgiving Eve, I will wish her the best and hope that her life and the lives of those children continue to be blessed and that one day they will be in a position to pay it Forward. Happy Thanksgiving.”

“Exactly. It is beneficial to have a "controversy" it makes people click on the link, or buy the magazine. It works well for the media as it does for politicians. Faux racial issues such as this distracts people from the real issues regarding race and the conversations that we truly should have - politicians keep the anger flowing between dems and repubs - we argue while these jokers get rich and do whatever they please with our tax dollars and we continue to pay them to NOT work. The purpose of this story was to get a negative reaction from the masses and manufacture outrage where there is none. Hopefully if enough of us ignore stories like this they will stop trying...we can only hope..”

“I read that story & it broke my heart. She will be vilified for having alcohol in her system and THAT narrative will become part of the story. We will continue to be angry, sorrowful and in pain until these self appointed 21st century Wyatt Earps are brought to justice swiftly. The time for wearing black tshirts, hoodies or ribbons is over. While those gestures of solidarity are nice photo ops, they do nothing to fix the systematic problem of those who continuously do evil and use "fear" as an excuse for senseless slaughter. WE should vote for those that will enforce the law and fire them if they do not, we should with hold our dollars in lessor cases like the Barney's discrimination to include ALL involved or associated with that company...there are ARE other rappers out there to listen to...until we care enough about ourselves and our future to demand better - we will continue to wring our hands and shake our heads at each story like this one...It will not be easy, but how many things worth while ever is? Be Blessed.”

“I did research for a paper in college. I went to social services and had an interview with one of the case workers for public assistance. She told me that I would get more benefits if I had a couple of children and actually looked disappointed that I did not have any, her "supervisor" came over and co-signed on her argument. They both gave me tips on how to get "more". I had asked for a job, but they told me the pay wasn't great. While I am not a fan of how some of these businesses treat their employees, I don't see an equal amount of articles addressing the growing problem that all of us have to deal with...”

“OK..enough...I know that common sense is now as valuable and rare as the "King's Jewel" but seriously? Ninja turtles, GI Joe, Transformers were all childhood staples and have stuck around for years. How many times did we get a large plastic bag of green soldiers and mimic their poses on the playground? It was harmless and you know what? There was A LOT less violence. I NEVER had to worry about gun fights in school, on the play ground or at the movies. What has this over reaction gotten us?? We give non stop publicity to the lunatics (thus assisting in fueling more lunatics) and we punish kids for playing. Has anyone stopped to think that perhaps this ridicule of imaginative play helps to stifle creativity? I guess the school administrators would prefer this child sat in his room by himself, playing video games..not thinking..not interacting..not creating... for hours...yeah that would be much better for all of us...”

“Good Point. Family "traditions" such as these lose their importance when confronted with an opposing view that is just as strong. My guess is she has some sort of "safety" in her community.... Sure she has a "right" to do this, but traditions such as these should be left to the adults who are willing to absorb the backlash - not a child who is only caught in this families brainwashing tsunami of ignorance.”

“Rebel Flag, Dixie Flag, Southern Cross. Many posters have strong feelings about this Southern Symbol. Is it part of Southern Heritage? Yes. Do current historical societies use this as a symbol of pride? Yes. But as proud as someone of the South is of this "Flag" one can not only embrace the partial meaning of rebellion against Northern Dominance. The confederacy fought for and believed in the owning of other human beings, does that mean that there were no slaves in the North? Not by a long shot. The slavery debate while not the only part, is a part of the heritage of this flag. The flag began to re appear in the US on schools and universities as a protest against DE-segregation in the mid 1950's and has continued to be used by groups such as the Klan as a symbol of supposed Supremacy disguised as "Pride". For this individual to believe that he can absorb the totality of this issue with a T-shirt is just as ridiculous as cherry picking the meaning and history associated with the flag itself.”
