Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013

In memory and honor of one my most admired heroes, I'm sharing one of the many social network tributes distributed the day Nelson Mandela died.  The chosen salute, posted on Facebook  by a loyal subscriber to this blog, best speaks to and further inspires the mission of e RACE your isms.com.

Rest in peace,  great servant of humankind.

    Whenever I'm on the verge of exploding in anger over some bigot's abuse of the First Amendment I channel that wonnderful song from "South Pacific":

    You've got to be taught
    To hate and fear,
    You've got to be taught
    Farm yyear to year;
    It's got to be drummed
    In your dear little ear,
    you've got to be carefully taught.

    You've got to ne taught
    to be afraid
    Of ppeople whose eyes
    Are oddly made;
    Of people whose skin
    Is a different shade
    you've got to be caarefully taught.

    You've got to be taught
    Before it's too late--
    Before you are six
    Or seven or eight
    To hate all the people
    Your relatives hate.
    You've got to be carefully taught.
