But today everyone wants something for free. Blacks think they deserve something because their ancestors were slaves. They demand an apology for an offense they did not receive from people who did not give it. If they were not black they wouldn't even know they came from africa and that their great great great grandparents were slaves.
And if anyone deserves an apology it is the Native Americans. But you don't hear them complaining because they never were insulted so they don't feel like someone else should apologize from something they didn't do.

You don't think it's insulting to kill then steal someone's land and move the remaining to reservations?
Name one tribe that hasn't sued (a form of complaint) for their land to be returned or some sort of reparation.
The Feds allowing them casinos and billions of gambling cash is their 'apology'.
Slaves got a statue of MLK with a botched inscription in return.
