Nelson Mandela on the US invasion of Iraq
This is the Mandela that I mourn not the white-washed, sanitized version of a revolutionary figure that aligned with Communists, was part of a group branded as terrorists by Reagan, who continued to voice his opposition to Israel’s apartheid regime and illegal occupation of the West Bank and used armed resistance to fight apartheid in South Africa.
The way white people are exalting him across the political spectrum globally based on his national reconciliation work in South Africa post-apartheid (which did have major pitfalls for non-whites in particular) and erasing his revolutionary past and fight for equality across the globe shows just how ignorant of history they are and how incredibly myopic they are too.
White people are doing to Mandela what they’ve already done to Martin Luther King, Jr., and it makes me sick. If I see one more racist white liberal lionizing Mandela in a way that erases his revolutionary past so their facebook status about his death can serve as their “feel-good” justification of the day for their “liberalism,” I’m going to be sick. And don’t even get me started on the white American conservatives who are now lauding him even as Reagan demonized the ANC and Dick Cheney voted against a resolution that would have urged the South African apartheid government to remove Mandela from prison.
Don’t sanitize Mandela for your white comfort. He’s a hero in many regards, but maybe not for the reasons you might think based on the whitewashing he’s receiving in the media to hollow him out and make him into a puppet figure for racist white liberals and conservatives alike, just like MLK.

COCO-PB-SWIRL ICE CREAM !
All Vegan, Mostly Raw, Entirely Delicious.
Basic banana ice cream:
- 5 frozen bananas, blended
- 2 tbs PB2
- 1 tbs cacao powder
- Water or a bit of the banana ice cream
Blend frozen bananas, I sometimes will use half fresh bananas and half frozen bananas to get less of an ice cream consistency. Then I pour the ice cream into a bowl, and leave maybe half of a cup still in the blender. Add your PB2 (powdered peanut butter with most of the fat removed so you still get a lot of pb flavor but it’s considered more 80-10-10) and cacao powder. Optional add- dates and vanilla. Blend and stir into banana ice cream.
Perfectly Roasted Seasoned Potatoes
What you’ll need:
- 1lbs chopped potatoes, any kind
- 2 tablespoons canola/olive oil blend (or any other high-heat oil)
- fresh rosemary, finely chopped (any dried herbs will work too)
- garlic, white pepper & nutritional yeast (to taste)
- sea salt (added after roasting!!)
- Preheat oven to 425°F
- In a roasting pan, toss the potatoes with everything but the salt
- Roast for 30-45 minutes stirring twice throughout
When potatoes are crispy and browned on the outside, remove roasting pan from the oven and toss potatoes with sea salt while still hot. Be careful not to burn yourself! Serve as a breakfast side or incorporate them in a main dish. The leftovers make great filling for vegan burritos! Enjoy ~ EA
