    Re: Senate Backs Apology for Slavery

    My ancestors during the time of American slavery weren't even Americans. They were Germans. Can they legitimately apologize for me when not even my ancestors were a part of the deal?
    According to the New Orthodoxy, merely being white means you are responsible for all the world's evils, and this burden extends to your unborn descendants for all eternity as well. Your mere existence is a crime against the planet.

    Cool, eh?

    The senate was going to apologize to the American Indians last year but I don't remember that ever happening.

    The Indians were screwed over by the government. Slaves were more screwed over by the marketplace.

    The Senate and the house should apologize to everyone for the fact that they do nothing for the good of the country,but act only in their own self interest of getting reelected. As for reparations, that appears to be ongoing in the form of ACORN

    Isn't the Senate Indians resolution just a sitting bull story ??

    Re: Senate Backs Apology for Slavery

    Didn't sometimes in the 1950's Germany apologize for killing Jews in the yet not all Germans killed Jews and not all Germans who did killed Jews were alive at the time of the apology !

    So does that mean that Germany's apology for killing Jews is meaningless ?
    Of course German's apology was reinforced with reparations.

    Isn't it reparartions what some Blacks what either in addition to an apology or in place of an apology ?

    Seems like a waste of time to me. I think actions speak louder than words.

    I don't see the IRS apologizing for their enslavement of the tax payer.
    I'm what Willis was talkin' bout.

    That's a hyper quantum leap to equate the tax law to a form of slavery by the IRS.
