As is to be expected,  when death claims an iconic figure, included among the eulogizers are a few who criticize.  Nelson's ex-wife, Winnie, agrees that while Nelson Mandela was a great and courageous man, he was too preoccupied with the concilliation and compromise that reinforced white control and neutralized black demands. She says that in spite of all the adulation over Mandela, under his leadership little has changed in South Africa when it comes to reducing poverty and increasing opportunities among its black masses.

 

In response to those in this country who compare Obama to Mandela, Obama's critics say concilliation is the main thing that he and Mandela had in common because Obama's obsession with being president of all the people has led him to ignoring his own people whose glaring needs remain unfulfilled. 

 

Although he never ascended to Mandela's position of authority, pundits give significant credit to Martin Luther King's adopting Gandhi's non-violent agitating for true change. Whereas, the terrorist tactics that landed Mandela in jail culminated with him opting for concilliation instead of reform once he became president after his release.   

 

Elsewhere, using the social media as a platform, a few have expressed relief that Mandela's demise has provided a respite from the orgy of grief inspired by the death of Paul Walker, an undistinguished cast member of "The Fast and Furious" movies. 

 

And so it goes...
