ahh yes you love the g*psy life, like being forced to live in poverty, have your children taken away from you by the government and put in state care,being targeted by neo-nazis,and having to experience your family go through the holocaust and still be persecuted across Europe. And being deported from country to country because nobody wants you in their back yard.
or are do you mean you just love being a ~* care free bohemian*~, oh ok.

Nelson Mandela and his African National Congress party have been removed from the US terror watch list.
REMEMBER THIS WHEN US OFFICIALS WANNA TRY AND ACT LIKE THEY CARED ABOUT THIS MAN
His body isn’t even cold yet and the New York times has already put out a shameful article declaring Nelson Mandela to be an “icon of peaceful resistance”. News outlets around the Western world are hurrying to publish obituaries that celebrate his electoral victory while erasing the protracted and fierce guerrilla struggle that he and his party fought against the white supremacist South African state in order to make that victory possible. Don’t let racist, imperialist liberalism co-opt the legacy of another radical. Nelson Mandela used peaceful means when he could, and violent means when he couldn’t. For this, during his life they called him a terrorist, and after his death they’ll call him a pacifist — all to neutralize the revolutionary potential of his legacy, and the lessons to be drawn from it.
Don’t fucking let them.
