    Angry America to apologise to Black Americans for slavery

    YardFlex.com: America to apologise to Black Americans for slavery

    A white- Jewish congressman, who is up for re-election this year and an advocate for the US apologizing to minority groups for past mistreatments, and a sponsor for Memphis blacks, is pleased as the US government will be taking a vote in the House of Representatives to offer a formal apology to the black Americans for "enslavement and racial segregation".

    The US has officially recognized that "lingering consequences" from slavery and segregation continue to haunt black Americans, as they embrace their first black presidential nominee, Barack Obama.

    The US government has apologized for the abuse of ethnic minorities twice in the past: in 1988 they apologized to the Japanese Americans for WW11 and the Hawaiians in 1993.

    Once the apology is passed, the Senate will need to approve it before George Bush can sign the measure into law.

    The apology states; "An apology for centuries of brutal dehumanization and injustices cannot erase the past, but confession of the wrongs committed can speed racial healing and reconciliation and help Americans confront the ghost of their past."

    Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina and Alabama states have each approved apologies for slavery.

    Leave my Ojibway bruhs out of this.


    So, with an apology comes.....better schools for minority youths, especially in the inner cities ? Better access to healthcare ? More social programs to help educate blacks in the U.S. about their history (not just slavery) ? Less negative representation, or better yet, MORE positive representation in the media ?

    After the "I'm sorry" then what ?
