“Justitia suum cuique distribuit” Justice renders to every one his due
It is far easier for them to make resolutions about slavery, and the demonstrations in Iran,then to have to work on the economy,which neither side has any clue how to fix.
BBC NEWS | UK | Church apologises for slave tradeA church doing the right thing?
It looks like the only ones not apologizing are the Africans and Arabs who stole, traded, or bought them,and then sold them.
Maybe instead of worrying about what has happened to our ancestors, we need to worry about what we are doing today. Yes Slavery does not exist anymore in the US, but discrimination and racism is still very alive. We, as American People, should realize that all men AND women are created equal. Equality does not mean we all are the same in everything, but that everyone has an ability that is in no way greater or inferior to another.
Realize that everyone has racist or prejudice tendencies and to stop those tendencies through an inner transformation. Change yourself before you try to change the world. If everyone in America could embrace this idea, then we could be place that honestly accepted everyone for who they are.
But no mention of slaughtering every American we saw in our gunsites known as the "Settling of the American West"?
It is what it is and it was what it was and thankfully it is over(?)
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Slavery once made the world's economy go round. Ugly truth.
I get tired of America acting like it is the only country in the world that once had slaves, or that we are the only people that ever ran native people off their land.
It's the way the world once was. Again, it's the sad, ugly truth.
We've actually gotten past it. Not so in Africa and the Middle East, which ironically, is where it all began.
