    Clearly there is a small, but loud group.

    The attempt to prove that King was a communist was related to the feeling of many segregationists that blacks in the South were happy with their lot but had been stirred up by "communists" and "outside agitators".[207] However, the civil rights movement arose from activism within the black community dating back to before World War I. King said that "the Negro revolution is a genuine revolution, born from the same womb that produces all massive social upheavals—the womb of intolerable conditions and unendurable situations."[208] Wikipedia
    As he is rightly honored every year, it’s easy to forget that Dr. King was once reviled as a Communist and a threat to America. John Avlon on why the old attacks are a warning for today’s politicians.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. a Communist? Why He?s Been Whitewashed
    Some think this is why King was killed.

    ...King began challenging the nation's fundamental priorities. He maintained that civil rights laws were empty without "human rights" — including economic rights. For people too poor to eat at a restaurant or afford a decent home, King said, anti-discrimination laws were hollow.

    Noting that a majority of Americans below the poverty line were white, King developed a class perspective. He decried the huge income gaps between rich and poor, and called for "radical changes in the structure of our society" to redistribute wealth and power.

    "True compassion," King declared, "is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring."

    Well the fact of the matter is, that whatever he may (or may not have done) he is viewed as a father figure of his country, and the vast majority of South Africans supported (and still do support him). Basically you should accept he was a great man, and move on. People still idolize the founding fathers here in the US, and they weren't exactly perfect either.

    South Africa after Mandela - latimes.com

    For this, Mandela deserves all the adulation that will undoubtedly be heaped on him in the days ahead. But to truly honor his memory, the world should keep a wary eye on what is happening in his country, where a new generation of leaders has put his legacy of inclusiveness, selflessness and moderation in jeopardy.

    The early years after the fall of apartheid were hopeful ones. South Africa held free and fair elections (in which Mandela was voted in as president), conducted a riveting and revolutionary truth-and-reconciliation process, built a respected multiracial judicial system and permitted a vigorous free press. Thanks to Mandela, it largely avoided the angry reprisals against whites that were widespread in neighboring Zimbabwe. The black middle class began to grow.



    But South Africa has taken a turn for the worse. The country's economic, racial and social problems pose a challenge to its democracy, and the competence and integrity of successive ANC governments have been called into question.

    Crime rates are high — especially those of rape and sexual assault. Allegations of corruption are widespread. Between 1998 and 2011, the infant mortality rate doubled. According to the Washington Post, a quarter of South Africans lack proper housing and a quarter have no electricity. Unemployment remains stubbornly high. The disparity between rich and poor has widened since the end of apartheid.

    The country's leaders have failed to rise to the occasion. Former President Thabo Mbeki's denial that the HIV virus causes AIDS so hampered the distribution of anti-retroviral drugs that an estimated 330,000 people infected with HIV died prematurely between 2000 and 2005. The current president, Jacob Zuma, has fought off accusations of graft and bribe-taking.
