Nelson Mandela Died
If you've been on the Internet in the last 24 hours, you probably already know that that revolutionary and former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died yesterday at the age of 95, removing a shining beacon of humanity from a world that sorely needs it. Hopefully, this puts Paul Walker's death in perspective for everyone, because instead of making mediocre movies about cars, Mandela literally changed the world. And since the world doesn't like when somebody does that (Jesus, JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, etc) , Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years for conspiracy to overthrow a government that instituionalized racism and thrived on racial inequality. I could add more, but everything I will say we seem small and insignificant compared to Mandela's life and legacy. Oh, this post needs a joke. Ok. Dick Cheney once called Mandela a terrorist without a hint of irony.
