Sorry Don't Fix It! Slavery Was Slavery!

Here's the mea cupla from the House. The dude that put this legislation forward is in a very tight race for re-election in a very African American district. He's white and his challenger is a black female. Interesting timing for an apology for slavery.

Yeah and it passed. Apparently the guy is doing a good job in his district. It was Harold Ford's old seat. Politics are dirty dirty dirty. What has been happening is pitting white gay men as challengers to current elected black female officials under a liberal guise to unseat them.

One [white] guy is able to accomplish something the entire CBC could not? Apparently he has more power than an entire group. Ouch.

Or does this reveal how irrelevant the CBC is?

Reparations in the 21st century would mean that some intellects of African descent could become wealthy. The wealthy white Americans are too greedy and too racist to create another or stronger class of people. So, they shed a tear for us every now and then to feel better about their billions. Boo-Woo. But, you know , if they are so sorry where is that Museum of Slavery. . .Say you are sorry while you cut the ribbon to uncover the dirty secret of America's history. I asked one of my professor why is there a Holocaust Museum and not a Slavery Museum, he told that the Jews are more organized than Blacks. In other words, you people are still thinking of the "self" and not the collective. WOW . . . The history of slavery is a peculiar thing because some of us want to ... forgive me... want to forget... What has it been over 300 years and we have not demanded reparations. Well, we will the ONLY race that was forced into existence to NOT receive damages for the wrongs of the past.
We should be apologizing the our ancestors for not demanding reparations.
