do we need to keep hearing about this?
Granted, Americans of African descent were slaves during the early years of our Nation, that fact is not debatable, and I am not arguing that. However, what I am arguing about is this incessant politically correct need to apologize (and pay) for every wrong this country has ever committed in her 233 years of life. I see no African Nation has ponied up any reparation payments, despite their complicity in slave trading and slave holding, which continues to this day.
How many times must we, as Americans, be forced to atone and pay for the sins of our Fathers? When is enough, enough? When will we as a society stop judging our Country for the institution of slavery that ended in 1865? When will we stop apologizing for past behaviors based on today's standards of societal conduct?
Apparently not enough kowtowing and reciting 'mea culpa' ad nauseum will do for the grievance mongers.
