Comments: You're No Good, Winnie, And You Never Were

To recall the practice: "Necklacing" was binding the victim's hands behind him with barbed wire (or chopping them off), putting a tire around his neck and filling the open portion with gasoline, and burning him alive. Winnie Mandela condone the practice.

I'm confused. The lefties wanted S.A. banned from the global community over its racism. Fair enough, racism is bad. But now the lefties want us to engage with countries such as Iran & North Korea, whose practices are just as bad. So why the difference?

There was a shantytown on the main quad at North Carolina the spring semester of my senior year, right through my graduation. Ruined the scenery. I convinced some freshmen to spray paint graffiti on the shanties. I vaguely recall that it was something clever and anti-divestment, but I can't remember now exactly what it said.
