Just an anecdote...

When I was attending Campbell University's campus on Fort Bragg in 1986, my Sociology (I think) professor asked us to make predictions for the future. One of my predictions was that Nelson Mandela would eventually be President of South Africa, and several of my fellow classmates laughed about that.

When my professor asked what I based that on, I said something along the lines of, "Apartheid is one of the last vestiges of European Colonial rule in Africa, and when it falls, South Africa already has its next leader, even if he is sitting in a jail cell."
