    NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg says a New York City school will be named after South African leader Nelson Mandela.

    Bloomberg said Friday that the Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn will be renamed The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice.

    Mandela, one of the world's most beloved figures, died Thursday. He was 95.

    Mandela visited that school during a visit to New York in 1990. It was just months after he was released after spending 27 years in prison.

    He was in incarcerated for political offenses in apartheid South Africa.

    Bloomberg says renaming the Bedford-Stuyvesant school to honor Mandela will "forever serve as a reminder" of his powerful legacy.

    Mandela traveled to New York several times and received a key to the city in 2005. :facepalm:

    Boys and Girls HS is more dangerous than the ghettos of South Africa, that's for sure.

    Bed Stuy is perhaps slightly, only slightly safer.

    CRIME: The vast majority of visitors complete their travels in South Africa without incident. However, visitors should be aware that criminal activity is prevalent throughout the country and can be violent. The South African government has in place a number of strong anti-crime initiatives, but violent crimes, such as armed robbery, carjacking, mugging, "smash-and-grab" attacks on vehicles, and other criminal acts are still common and do affect visitors and resident U.S. citizens.
    Note: Visitors to the U.S. Embassy in Pretoria and U.S. Consulates General in Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg should be aware of the risk of muggings, several of which have occurred near U.S. diplomatic facilities. While measures have been taken to address concerns about potential muggings, visitors approaching U.S. government facilities should be aware of their personal security and carry as little money and valuables as possible.
    Visitors and residents are advised of ongoing criminal activity involving organized crime gangs targeting individuals and commercial businesses at shopping centers and other public places. Once a victim has been identified, he/she may be followed back to his/her residence or hotel and robbed. Robberies often involve weapons; the use of force is used from the moment of attack and generally escalates greatly for those offering some form of resistance.

    Nothing like rash, knee-jerk, off-the-cuff, shoot-from-the-hip actions to meaninglessly Jump on a fad.
