No one is blaming you for your white ancestors actions. But do not disregard our anger when you are the only ones benefiting from the institutions your ancestors put in place at the cost of our countrymen. You are the only ones benefiting, and yet they are the ones who paid in blood, sweat, and death.
The fact that a flower will die never stops it from blooming. It’s just the course of life.
“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” ~ Nelson Mandela, who sadly died today aged 95 (story here).

Rest in love, Madiba.
I come across a lot of interesting photos on my dashboard each day, and lately I’ve taken an interest into adding context to a lot of them.
Such as why Nelson Mandela is pictured above in a Detroit Pistons warm-up jacket?
The context: in 1990, the South African liberation leader arrived in Detroit as part of his U.S. tour, where he was celebrated by employees at the Ford River Rouge automobile plant as a hero for working people.
The rest of the day included functions with the mayor and other city leaders, and culminated with a rally at Tiger Stadium, where the sold out crowd paid tickets up to $10,000 to hear Mandela.
It’s definitely a lot easier to get the home crowd on your side when you’re representing the Bad Boy Pistons at the height of their popularity.
