Again, I don't agree with AA being done now, but at a time, there was a definite need for it.
As much as I love reading a bunch of whitebread knuckleheads telling Blacks what they should think, what they should call themselves and how they should feel, let me just step back and wonder which of you was MOST harmed by this apology, and what form did that alleged "harm" take?
"whitebread knuckleheads telling blacks"?
I'm sorry, I think we were telling the knuckleheads in the senate.
What harm does it do? It causes separation, WE are sorry to YOU....
Not we Americans. But you americans and us Americans.
It's time to get over it an move on....
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
It does nothing but add salt to an old wound. People alive today had nothing to do with slavery or it's practice. So are the sons now guilty for the sins of the father?
As for the "African American" stupidity. Again it is nothing but more salt and causes even more of a divide. We are "Americans" it's not like we had any choice in our heritage. I am not African and don't really care about Africa, so why the hell should I put up with being called African American? I am an American with a dark skin color woohoo!
This whole slavery thing is for the birds.
Now that I think about it all liberals have given the black man is a welfare state and affirmative action. Well thanks, we appreciate the fact you don't think we can make it on an even playing field.

No Lives Matter
Tell me something, why does THIS Congress need to apologize for something that happened before many of them were even born?
I always thought that fighting a dramatic costly war, the most costly in terms of loss of life in our history, was more than enough to show that as a nation we decided that slavery was NOT an accepted norm. In the 1960ís we passed broad based legislation that made segregation illegal and spent vast sums of tax payer money destroying any lingering vestiges of public racism.
The price was paid, the efforts have been made, and now it is time for minorities to stand themselves up and become independent from the Government teat in my opinion. It is time for blacks to say enough is enough; we do not wish as a race to be dependent wards of the State and are going to promote efforts that support fathers being fathers and parents who make every effort to educate their children so that they have the chances and opportunities their parents and grand parents never had.
Until they do that, they will never move the bar enough to get their people out of the downward spiral that Government dependency always leads to.
This apology, much like the Democrat policies that have done NOTHING to make their situation better, is a waste of time and nothing more than another typical Democrat/Liberal feel good event which basically does NOTHING other than allow a bunch of old white Liberals pat themselves on the back and feel GOOD that they have now put this issue behind them and can now spend MORE time passing bills they cannot pay for.
