I'm not entirely sure what the purpose of this thread is, but it has my name in it, so I thoroughly endorse it.

I would love to see that go through congress only to get a big fat veto by Obama. Then, we will never have to hear about this kind of shit again.

I fully support any former slaves still alive getting a healthy apology of some sort.

I wonder what would happen if the government said flat-out, "We're ready to make an official apology, but it won't me backed by money. Money can't undo the horrible things that were done and we don't want to cheapen it by confusing the issue."
What would be enough?

I've not argued this point. Do you mind if I steal it for my next conversation with my liberal friends?
