NELSON MANDELA

Nelson Mandela began life in 1918 in South Africa. He led armed resistance against apartheid, his native land’s entrenched system of brutal legal discrimination that guaranteed political and economic security for White South Africans and disenfranchisement and poverty for Blacks.

As a part of the African National Congress (ANC), Mandela found himself first a fugitive and then a prisoner. During his twenty seven years in jail, he became an international symbol of defiance against the brutality of South Africa’s racist regime.

Mandela was freed from prison in 1990. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize three years later. Shortly thereafter, he was elected the first Black president of a new South Africa, one now free of apartheid–if not entirely of its legacy–due in part to his efforts.

On this date: FEBRUARY 11, 1990 Nelson Mandela ~ (South African president and political activist) released from prison after 27 years

MICHAEL SAM IS A INSTANT HERO OF THE GAY COMMUNITY

0210-michael-goodell-sam

Michael Sam is “an instant hero in the gay and lesbian community” … so says the brother of NFL commish Roger Goodell, who’s also openly gay.

SOURCES FROM TMZ Sports spoke to Michael Goodell … who says “it’s about time” a top NFL prospect was brave enough to be open about his sexuality.

In fact, Michael compares Sam to Jackie Robinson — saying because of the defensive end’s courage, homosexuality in the NFL “won’t be an issue in 10 to 20 years.”

Michael — who’s very close with his brother — says he hasn’t spoken to Roger about Michael Sam yet … but says he knows, “Roger is fine with this. He’s a good businessman and he’s been around this issue his whole life.”

As for whether he thinks Sam’s announcement will affect his draft stock — Michael says, “I’ve met a lot of the NFL owners through my brother. They’re businessmen, not homophobes.”
