God, that was annoying as fuck to read.

When Mandela (who had been imprisoned by the government for 20 years) first came to power, there was much fear, mistrust, and even hatred toward him. Mandela did something unthinkable and decided to actually forgive those who went against him and tried to bring the country back together, partially through supporting their rugby team-which was predominantly white and many blacks still saw as a symbol of oppression.Mandela's story is inspiring, but we shouldn't look at it as some past incident across the world that is not very relevant to us in our very "tolerant" society today. In fact, I would say much of the same fear and hatred that was shown to Mandela by the white population can be seen today in the resentment against Obama. We are still a nation deeply divided, and as much as people would like to say that race doesn't play a role in this division-it is clear that it still does. People can disguise their hatred and fear in the name of political philosophy, socialism, etc. However, the truth is that this extremism is slowly tearing our country apart.When I was teaching in South Carolina, I was able to see firsthand the results of this continued divide based on race and culture. There is still a horrid history that we need to mend, and there is still a divide our nation will have to confront. I encourage you to see the movie, but more importantly I challenge to really consider and confront the issues and problems that it presents. The hate and fear are still among us, and it is up to us to rise above that and actually try to create a just and peaceful society.


There we go.

Agreed. Wouldn't it be better in the Mike and the Mechanical Dragon section?

Hahaa, I can't believe someone took the time to edit the nonsense out of a spam post.

I can't believe there are actually other people posting in the Nebula.
