The Soweto Gospel Choir, in a flashmob tribute to Nelson Mandela:
What strikes me most about this video, other than the beauty of the music and these people, is watching all the white people applauding a group of black people singing and ending with their fists in the air. Can you imagine what Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson and the other pearl-clutchers of Faux Noise would do at the sight of something like this here in the US?
Apartheid began to be dismantled in South Africa in 1990 and ended once and for all in 1994. That's less than twenty years ago, and the races in South Africa have learned how to live together in a harmonious, mutually-respectful society. Here in the US, slavery ended in 1865 -- over 140 years ago -- and we are having cable news anchors having the vapors over black Santa Clauses. What the fuck is wrong with us?
