When there was slavery runningl oose in the LAND OF COTTON WHEREOLD TIMES WERE NOT FORGOTTEN the only political party down there there was the Democrats. After the Civil War and into the 1960's when the Civil rights battles were fought the Democrats who turned into Dixiecrats who turned into Southern Goldwater Reagan Republicans were the only party in power.

    Re: Senate Backs Apology for Slavery

    Well, I think a lot of people are saying we have nothing to apologize for, as we don't own slaves. It is true that no one alive today owned slaves, but the legacy of slavery and racism in this country can be seen very clearly today in many poor black neighborhoods.


    With that in mind, the very idea of apologizing is ridiculous. Not because we shouldn't apologize as a country, but because it is a completely empty gesture!! What does it accomplish?? What purpose does it serve?? None that I can see, so I think the senate should just concentrate on doing things that actually matter.

    I did say that it was a feel good jesture but I did initially think that it was necessary but I really don't know if the feelgoodness of the resolution is good enough or does the emptyness of that jesture justmake it it a joke ..

    You might as well have a resolution stating that the sun rises from the east.

    I know that this is a feel good action on the part of the Club of One Hundred but apologizing for slavery is about time.

    Does anyone think that the Senate should not have appologized ? If so why.

    Does anyone think that the Senate should have made this a binding resolution AND made it with reparartions ?

    If so why.

    Does any think that now that the Senate has passed this resolution Blacks shoudl shut up already, get back to work, and don't cause any more problems ?

    Does anyone think that all of the 99 serving Senators should be thrown out of office for passing this resolution ?
    Blair did this as well.
    It was bull****, what did it achieve? No one in this world used to be a slave and still lives. Are we going to apologise for everything, how far back will we go?

    Now that we've cleansed our souls on this, does this mean we can now demand one for the Zulus, Ashanti, Swahilis, and Arabs, too?

    Don't forget apologies for all Latin American countries, like Nicaragua and Panama.

    No, they should apologize to me for the Halocaust.


    Yeah they should apologize over and over. In fact they should get the president to stand up before the nation and apologize for slavery. I hope he goes into that Richard Pryor sound-alike thing when he does it.
