Now when does Rome apologize for the gladitorial games and all that lion-feeding they did with Christians?
Oh, I guess they would be better off in Africa and were not brought to this great land. Read the story of “Joseph” in Genesis....did he cry when he was sold into slavery and ended up being second in command in Egypt? He could have complained and got no where....but he did not and became second in command. Get the point?
Democrats still practice the ancient tradition of father’s sin becomes the son’s sin
If the Democrats pass any legislation giving cash reparations to blacks as payment for slavery that will result in the immediate death of the Democratic Party.
This is a set up for reparations. Maybe we should do it to finally to shut off the debate give each former slave $1,000,000,000.
Yet another trillion welfare/alimonious fraud or some slave commune of which this congress critter belongs to.
TJust as they blame their parents for not aborting them, they are blaming the liberators.
Populism = mobocracy. We need to repeal the 17th Amend.
Harkin needs to pay attention to the water bill that Russ Feingold is trying to force thru Congress instead of worrying about slavery.
Iowa will be a dust bowl if Feingold gets this passes. Iowa’s farmers won’t be happy if Harkin does NOT fight this bill==S 787.
I always get a laugh out of the whole “your ancestors benefited from slavery and Jim Crow” talking point... even though my parents did not move to the USA (from Africa) until 1972.
There is still slavery in the Sudan. Black on black slavery. If these black people really cared about the issue of slavery they would want to end what is going on in the Sudan. Apparently an apology to them is worth more than the enslavement of fellow black people.
To be blunt, if the black community ever wants to achieve true equality, then a very big first step would be to stop portraying themselves as victims.
Personally, if I was on the losing end of a war and had the option of living as a slave or being executed on the spot, I'd have chosen life. I understand that some, possibly many would choose death, but is it really more humane to outlaw slavery than to remove the hope of the defeated to at least continue to live, even as slaves?
No surprise that Harkin, the Vietnam fighter Pilot Liar, is in the middle of this farce.
Because back in 1861 we apologized for it at a cost of more lives lost than all other wars fought by this country before or since. Hows that for an apology Senator Harkin?
I have nothing to apologize for.
Good grief. This crap will never end.
The apology would have been more historically accurate if it had mentioned the role of the Democratic Party in supporting and enforcing both slavery and segregation.
Send the reparations bill to the DNC.
