    The sign language interpreter used at Nelson Mandela's football stadium memorial was a fake, it was claimed this morning.

    Braam Jordaan, a deaf South African and board member of the World Deaf Federation, said he believes the interpreter was making up signs as he went along.
    "The structure of his hand, facial expressions and the body movements did not follow what the speaker was saying", Mr Jordaan said.
    Mr Jordaan claimed the man, who signed for a portion of the ceremony including Barack Obama's speech, was simply making up his own signs.

    Regardless of the fake sign language thing, the South African government claims they don't know who this guy is. You know, the guy standing three feet behind all of the world's leaders?

    Mandela was directly responsible for the death of quite a few innocent people. That fact seems to be forgotten. Doesnt make me a racist for pointing it out.

    Don't you know that any time you criticize a black person you're racist?

    It's goddamn South Africa. Do you expect them to have good security? Maybe so during apartheid, but not now that the spooks are in charge.
