Wow is this what the Conservatives ( notice I typed Conservatives not Republicans ) have become? Not only racist but absolutely delusional. When questioning giving condolences and praise to a person of Nelson Mandela's stature who has done more to help humanity than 99.9% of us will ever do can be questioned then the train has come off the tracks. To be honest I expected this but that it still saddens me that this country is still so full of hate. George Cook AAReports.com

Muhammad Ali statement on passing of Nelson Mandela:
"I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Mandela. His was a life filled with purpose and hope; hope for himself, his country and the world. He inspired others to reach for what appeared to be impossible and moved them to break through the barriers that held them hostage mentally, physically, socially and economically. He made us realize, we are our brother's keeper and that our brothers come in all colors. What I will remember most about Mr.Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge. He taught us forgiveness on a grand scale. His was a spirit born free, destined to soar above the rainbows. Today his spirit is soaring through the heavens. He is now forever free."
President Obama says that Nelson Mandela's journey from a prisoner to President embodied the promise that human beings, and countries, can change for the better, and asks that we pause and give thanks for the fact that Mandela lived -- a man who took history in his hands, and bent the arc of the moral universe toward justice.

Well it's a good thing that the RNC says that racism has ended because something like this can't possibly happen, right? A police officer arrested three teens last week as they were standing outside a store in downtown Rochester, New York. Their crime: Waiting for a school bus.
The three boys — Raliek Redd, 16, Deaquon Carelock, 16, and Wan'Tauhjs Weathers, 17 — are star athletes at Edison Tech high school, and were waiting to be taken to a basketball game when they were spotted by an officer. Watch their story below:
