I didn't suggest we'd stop anything. I'm pointing out the flaw in the thought process. I don't think apologizing or not apologizing will have any real impact. I think it is a step backwards in an attempt to move forwards.


it will have no effect but it's a step backwards for progress?

you are going through some seriously painful mental gymnastics to try and get around your reactionary gut instinct that apologizing for slavery is wrong.

Not wrong but raises attention. And it's an another motive for African Americans they've been oppressed always.
Indeed today talking about how race minorities suffer / suffered is more racists than to behave everyone equally and not mention skin color. Look what's going on in Sweden, blacks call everything racist and make hype. They accentuate their skin color too much, don't you think so?

Who is going to apologize to who? No slaves still alive, no slave owners still alive. **==

The government of the United States would be apologizing to current minorities who are suffering from very long-term results of slavery.

I think that has been answered, even though I posted many disagreements with that thought process.

A free market has winners and loser's. It also has greed and corruption.
