The blacks living under Apartheid were far better off than those in Nearby Angola being murdered by Soviet Hind Gunships flown by white pilots, tortured to death in Angolan prisons by white East German Stasi, or slaughtered in their villages by Cuban Mercenary troops of the Soviet Empire. Similar Soviet Wars of Colonial Conquest were also happening in Mozambique, Ethiopia, Eritrea,and Rhodesia. This perspective is glaringly absent in this propaganda piece.

It was the Regan Doctrine of supporting anti Communist guerrilla fighters in those countries in Africa,Central America, and Afghanistan that caused the collapse of the Soviet Empire that ultimately freed Nelson Mandela from prison.

After the ANC lost their Soviet benefactor which aided them to the tune of $200 million a year, the communist Mandela was not seen as the threat he was earlier, so the SA authorities released him. And Mandela realized that he could not turn SA into a communist police state overnight without Soviet backing moderated his stand on the future of SA.

The hero in this true history is not Nelson Mandela but Ronald Reagan.

Also the efforts of Chief Buthelezi, who is a devoted Christian, held Mandela's feet to the fire.
