Who would get more applause: Mandela or Mugabe?
He began becoming friends of Westerners. He became too good. We still love him because of his pre-1994 activities, and despite the fact that, since then, the Westerners have come to love him too. In fact, it seems as though one of the main reasons we seem to love him so much is that he’s ours, so we need to love him more than Westerners. Despite our reservations about the fact that he was “too good”. Compare him to Mugabe. Mugabe we can love unrestrainedly since he has no such character defects. As Mugabe said about Mandela, Mandela went “a bit too far in doing good to the non-black communities, really in some cases at the expense of (blacks).a aThatas being too saintly, too good, too much of a saint” (http://www.citypress.co.za/politics/robert-mugabe-mourns-champion-oppressed-mandela/, 4/1/2014).
