Many on the political Right will observe that the late Nelson Mandela was a communist.
That will be the extent of their assessment and observations there after may not be charitable by Mandela supporter standards.
I was an anti-Apartheid activist in college and also conservative, despite often wearing " Malcolm X " medallions.
My support wasn't an embrace of communism but was a demand that South Africa finally live up to her rhetoric about being a free state.
Left of center activists like Mandela forced their nations to honor rhetoric about freedom & amend governing documents to end legal bias against Black people, as precursors for abolishing it against anyone.
The same holds true here in America as liberal jurists like Thurgood Marshall and allied advocates successfully changed Jim Crow, which if we're candid, was simply Southern-fried Apartheid.
Conservatives who promote the considerable virtue of a constitutional Republic, individual rights and free markets have much to applaud in Mandela's example, while wincing at his embrace of figures like Cuba's Fidel Castro.
They can also research the role right of center Blacks here, like Jay Parker, and South Africa's conservative Zulu populace, played in addressing not only Apartheid but how the former Soviet Union and its client states sought to exploit the situation for their own benefit.
Nelson Mandela's life challenges conservatives to make the West " the Free World " in reality and not just rhetorically because the disconnect invites socialists who use racial injustice as leverage to ultimately undermine such countries, if their wards allow it once taking power.
The Soviets were sent packing from more than one Third World country once victory over colonial masters was gained.
It would be remiss of me not to also note perpetual bloody coups and poverty afflicting these lands.
Post-Apartheid South Africa didn't live up to some conservative fears that she'd implode into chaos, nationalize her economy; nor engage in state-sponsored pogroms against her White minority.
She was beset by violence among Black activist groups and assaults against White farmers engaged in holding actions in the hinterlands.
Nelson Mandela, as a communist, ironically helped ensure South Africa could realistically become a member of the Free World, as opposed to rhetorically.
If he could do so from the Left, can we on the Right do any less within our nations to make sure the Free World truly is "free" for all its citizens?

( New Orleans ): I met today with Ms. Malena Asher, a member of the artist collective of Verve Art Gallery ( 1110 Canal St between Elk Place & Rampart, adjacent to the infamous China Wall restaurant ).
She is concerned about her shared shop because she is literally besieged by drug dealers, addicts and disruptive activity making her fear for her safety, let alone maintaining a business.
She understands NOPD is understaffed and overwhelmed, but her plea is one which is particularly urgent to an anti crime activist like myself, who's dealt with places like Canal Street's 1100th block for 20 years.
Inner city areas losing caring stakeholders like these are doomed to be violent, drug infested wastelands which menace high income locales like the near by Joy & Saenger Theaters, whose attendees avoid Verve because of the element around it.
Let's save Verve and in turn, save that block!

As an anti crime activist who's Black, I see Black cops as highly visible proof all American Blacks haven't jumped onto the street thug band wagon!
There should be a civil rights movement dedicated to supporting Black cops and police period as the only protection for the inner city, alongside law abiding men.
Thug-centric urban culture labels police the enemy and Black ones as traitors.
Ending this urban cold war pitting Black men against Black cops and police period will usher a quantum leap in rescuing the inner city literally from itself!
Not ending it promises today's harvest of injuries; officer-involved shootings; litigation and protests as neither side realizes they're on the same side.
I recently talked to a Black cop who shared a familiar lament about how hostile young Black men he stops are while performing his duties.
My deceased mentor, a retired New Orleans police officer, often told me how he and other Black cops would get a lot of lip from young brothers who wouldn't do the same to White peers.
The urban cold war not only disrespects and endangers police, it also helps murderers run scott free as inner cities horde vital information.
It brainwashes Black youth into thinking being law abiding, either as a civilian or police officer, isn't being authentically Black.
A thug identity dooms neighborhoods to being war zones segregated from the rest of America by their own violent behavior!
The urban cold war heats up with inner city homicide, attacks on police; officer-involved shootings and brutality complaints, all benefitting professional agitators to the ( sometimes fatal ) detriment of Black men, Black cops and police period!
Ending this urban cold war de-programs urban youth away from self-destructive "authenticity" as thugs, saving their lives and ultimately those of Black men, Black cops and police period caught in a deadly dispute few dare admit even exists!

If folks want a safer New Orleans ( or America ), they'll have to hit the streets as their own deterrent to crime.
Our demoralized police department, along with others nationally, is hitting the streets on their own, by quitting in record numbers.
New Orleans mayor won't ask for help from the State Police nor the National Guard, so it's up to us would-be hostages to actively organize to legally defend ourselves.
Concerned observers warn another 60 NOPD officers are leaving in December, so the recent class of Police Academy graduates are welcome reinforcements!
My 1 Man Street Patrol concept asks us not to wait for the crowd to arrive before showing we care by hitting the streets to protect our communities.
Rich New Orleanians, like wealthy Americans everywhere, can afford self-taxed security districts where off duty police or private security patrolmen supplement on duty shifts.
The rest of us have only ourselves and fellow 1 Man ( or Woman ) Street Patrols to count on for available protection.
Hit the streets New Orleans and America before thugs control all our streets, regardless of median income or demographics!
