Nelson Mandela’s death has rocked the world. An exemplification of all of the qualities that make one a hero, Mandela fought diligently to end apartheid in South Africa, spending three decades in prison because of his efforts and going on to lead the country himself.
His passing, to any reasonable person, evokes at least a twinge of sadness. The world has sent kind words, gifts, and engaged in any number of activities and events memorializing this great man.
And then there’s the Right Wing.
Social media has exploded with hatred toward Mandela, and it’s as though white wingers on Facebook and Twitter are competing to see who can be more awful toward a man who would never think of returning the sentiment.
Let’s take a look at Facebook’s contributions to this shameful display of bigotry:
A n*gger and a terrorist died today. They were the same person. See you in hell, Nelson Mandela…. http://t.co/7P7onmeiGJ
