There is a lot of atoning left to do. Now if we could also have similar apologies to African-Americans, Asians, Jews, Irish, Italians, and every other mistreated minority, we'd be getting somewhere.

Sorry.

Can we now move on? It's been decades and decades, but people never forget. They continue to bring up the past, no matter that those living had NOTHING to do with any atrocity.

There will be no peace and understanding with constantly bringing up the past.

Many Native Americans continue to live in abject poverty and socioeconomic ruin for a laundry list of reasons, most boiling down to the fact that we murdered them, rounded up survivors like cattle, shoved them onto reservations, banned their native languages and cultures, tried to make them live how we WANTED them to live, and eventually, ignored them. This social travesty continues today. We STILL ARE RESPONSIBLE.

and while we're at it, lets have the mongols apologize to china, the visigoths apologize to rome, the romans apologize to gaul, the spanish apologize to mexico, the japanese apologize to the philippines and germany apologize to everyone.

all that, and a buck and a half will get you a cup of coffee...
and do ALMOST as much good.

what's done is done ... apologizing for something people did 200 - 300 - 400 years ago is less than meaningless, and a waste of time for a congress that has REAL problems to solve!

You posted crap that reflects a very poor educational background and a piss-poor knowledge of basic American history. Read a few books sometime - they're those things with pages with words on them. I'm happy that you like being a moron - it suits you. Carry on.

While that may have been true at one time it no longer is. Their native languages are not banned, their cultures are encouraged, and any travesty today that happens is the choice of the people. Their education is free, they pay no taxes, and get free health care. If they choose to leave the res to have a life, good on them. The Italians and Germans, and any other ethnic group in the US that you can name have managed to keep their cultures intact and never lived in isolation.

Custer's attack on the native americans in the midwest was reprimanded by Gen.T.Sherm and called "..wholly unecessary.." by Ulysses Grant..

He might have asked them about a strategy (Grant and Sherm) before
his life was terminated in battle

When will the scumbags apologize for allowing 1.7 million black on white race crimes per year? When will they apologize for the destruction caused to our families and society by multiculturalism and diversity? When will they just do the right thing and commit seppuke?

Do you honestly believe that once a Culture and way of life has been destroyed and systematicly dismantled That You can just pick up the pieces and put it all back together again. Humpty Dumpty sat on a Wall / Humpty Dumpty had a Great fall / All the King's Horses and all The King's men can not put Humpty Dumpty together again!

Hey, that's no fair! You stole my thoughts and words almost verbatim.

American Indians, blacks, Asians....you name it. I'm sick and tired of all the coddling of people for things that happened DECADES before anyone alive now was even an embryo.
