For Winnie: Danto's analysis on coverage of Mandela Legacy

Nelson Mandela is dead at 95 years old. The African National Congress liberation movement he led, helped make white minority rule and apartheid in Africa a monstrous reality no decent human would wish to be associated with.

Since Mandela's death, the same international powers that keep the structural conditions alive for Black suffering worldwide, are universally heralding the man and his great achievements. The same corporatocracy who helped keep South Africa and the global South in economic chains and political instability to increase their money-making profits, are lining up to have their pictures taken at the funeral.
