Sanders: 'We have got to apologize for slavery'

Funny agenda he has. Apologizing for slavery that was started centuries ago and was ended more than a century ago. I wonder if he’s sincere, looks like just an attempt to steal African-American votes from Hillary.
It’s better to keep silence than to talk useless. In my opinion, such speeches by politicians make people remember dark chapters of history, remember that we were divided by race, what is in the past already.

They took the rebel flag down, that means slavery has been erased from our history. Besides, no one alive today in America has owned or has been owned by other people.

So there was no slavery before the confederacy existed?

Its still alive and well in other parts of the world. Its actually still alive today right here, debt is the new slave master and its non race specific.

The slave master is no longer chains, whips. etc. its debt, low wage, etc. The best way to secure free room and board today is commit a serious felony.

Maine, Illinois, Ohio, Penn and Minnesota should be exempt from any apologies.

i thought we apologized when all those white folks died so that other men could be free. that didn't apologize for racism, no, but we're talking about slavery here.

I did NOT own any slaves, I owe NO ONE an apology for anything. No one alive today (in the USA) has been owned either. Well, other then the banks etc.
