Mayor: we'll honor him by opening the Nelson Mandela School of Social Justice, small school in famed Boys and Girls HS building in Bed-Stuy

Mayor Bloomberg ran New York City as Soweto on the Hudson, a place where hundreds of thousands of men of color were stopped and searched just because they were of color.
His police chief, Raymond Kelly, is famed for saying he wanted every black and brown man to leave his home in fear that he could be searched by the police.
Why would a mayor who has fought so long and so hard to ensure this city used stop and frisk tactics to harass black and brown people want to open a school named for Nelson Mandela?
Quite frankly, Bloomberg has more in common with P.W. Botha than Nelson Mandela.
