because he was such a fundamentally and wholly good person, i’m sure we’re going to see a lot of mainstream and conservative sources appropriating mandela’s feel-good quotes to show their deference to him in the next few days. and we owe it to mandela’s legacy to not let them get away with that.
never forget that apartheid ended in the fucking nineteen NINETIES and never forget that the people who opposed the ANC’s anti-apartheid mission and who threw him in prison and tried to kill him are still alive and still powerful. never forget that the ANC was closely allied with communist groups in south africa and namibia. never forget that without funding and resources from the CIA and american businesses apartheid would’ve ended much, much sooner. never forget that the ANC was considered a terrorist group by the US until two thousand fucking EIGHT. never forget that the ANC actually WAS a terrorist group at some points in history and that mandela himself condoned the use of violence in response to the severe oppression his people underwent.
