If Congress passes a resolution regretting or condemning the history of slavery, or crimes done to Native Americans, I support that. But apologize? No. Generations living today had nothing to do with all that. Apologizing to Japanese-Americans was different because that was done in living memory.

All very good arguments! So many black thugs have assaulted white or Asian victims, but all the media tells us about is Trayvon Martin. I am sick of hearing about that kid.
