Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was not your human rights professor. he was not your mentor. what does it say about you that you feel you need to be taught how to honor and respect another human being BECAUSE of the color of their skin. what does it say that you feel you ‘need’ a mentor to show you how to be an actual human being. you are so busy trying to beat us to the finish to lionize him as your champion, claim/take/steal him as yours, that you do not see, in this you reveal your true starvation, your extreme difficulty in comprehending how to be compassionate to poc. who needs to be taught that it is wrong to be brutal and sadistic to another human being, BECAUSE of the color of their skin. apparently, by your own admission, you do. we see you. clearly.
