On the occasion of Mandelas passing its worth remembering our own hand in apartheid. (713 hits)



During the cold war America backed the oppressive South African government as a bulwark against Communism.Nelson Mandela's enduring legacy will always be the abolition of apartheid in South Africa.

It's hard to imagine that during the height of apartheid,in the 1950s South Africa actively sought tourists proudly boasting ( without a whiff of irony) that South Africa was a land of contrasts. Slow to oppose apartheid, white Americans traveled freely to this land of contrasts, no doubt finding it no differe3nt than their own Jim Crow laws at home.
