    Funny how The United States considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008… and now he is regarded as some sort of saint.
    If he did what in did in the present time, he was be labelled a terrorist. margaret thatcher was right to label him one in my opinion.

    Terrorism is Terrorism people.

  14. Navi December 5, 2013

    Why is it that every time someone dies you post the celebrities thoughts on the death? Why can’t you just make a respectful post about the person who passed saying RIP without enfolding everyone else’s memories.

  19. Tash December 5, 2013

    RIP Mr Mandela a true legend. @Jer why are you more worried about Beyonce than his death? Shame on you. Beyonce already tributed him anyway on Instagram with a perfectly appropriate message anyway.

  20. rih rox((U mad Bro?)) December 5, 2013

    Beyonce will probably perform ‘I will always love you’ & ‘halo’. 🙂

  21. KING B December 5, 2013

    The insensitivity of some of yall is appaling…..as a South African all i can do is thank him for MY freedom, this man worked to the bone, sacrificed 27 years of his life in jail just so i can walk freely in the city, be able to get a real education and be able to have white friends and even marry a white person…..i thank you TATA for my freedom!

  30. Mrs. Carter December 6, 2013

    RIP Mandela. Shocked at some of the comments posted here. A man has died doesn’t matter if you knew him or not. Could we show some respect and stop acting ghetto for one second. Is that too much to ask.

  35. HEROINE December 6, 2013

    Ignorance and negativity does not get you anywhere…if u do not know about something or someone then keep quiet…don’t pass judgement based on what you heard others who were also ignorant like you said.

  37. Bethany December 6, 2013

    Why the sadness? He was 95 years old. South Africans are celebrating a life well lived and so should we. RIP sir Mandela

  38. The truth December 6, 2013

    You sound uneducated and delusional after sharpeville , massacre where 69 Africans were shot by the racist Afrikaans regime Mandela began to state that violence was necessary for freedom to be achieved .

    You sound totally naive and disrespectful and cannot live anywhere except Russia or Eastern Europe with those type of views.

    Because if you don’t you sound even more stupid, as the western civilisations of uk and USA were built upon oppressing black people and ethnic minorities.

    Get an education!

  39. Os December 6, 2013

    R.I.P to a great man Nelson Mandela.is legacy will live. on.

  40. Stop he drama Start the music December 6, 2013

    Mariah is partially white u dumbass. She is mixed. RIP Mandela.

  41. JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2013

    RIP Nelson
    I agree there´s nothing to be sad about. Just to celebrate what he achieved. It was time. My first time hearing about him was long ago when Whitney Houston did a huge concert in his honour in South Africa around 1994 or so. Memorable.

  42. Egypt (Gaga4Ever) December 6, 2013

    Thank You So much for everything Tata, We as South Africans and The rest of the World will forever Love,Respect and Appreciate your Existance. Lt us all Celebrate him and his contribution towards love, peace and Freedom. I a Proud To have lived in your time. I as a young Black South african am so greatfull for your struggle. R.I.P Father.
