House apologizes for slavery, 'Jim Crow' laws
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--The injustice of slavery, "Jim Crow" segregation laws and racist attitudes that linger in American society demand an apology, the U.S. House of Representatives acknowledged June 29 in a resolution adopted on a voice vote at the nation's capitol.

House Resolution 194, authored by Steve Cohen, a white Democrat from Tennessee who represents a majority black district in Memphis, admits that a genuine apology for "centuries of brutal dehumanization and injustices" is "an important and necessary first step in the process of racial reconciliation." It recognizes that in 2003 President George W. Bush called American slavery "one of the greatest crimes of history" and that "many of the issues that still trouble America have roots in the bitter experience of other times." ...

On July 25, 1946, Roger Malcom, a 24-year-old black man, was released from jail on bail after the charge against him was reduced from murder to attempted murder because the white man he had allegedly stabbed during an altercation was going to live. Malcom, his wife and another black couple were being driven home by the white farmer who had posted the bail, and who before the lynching was heard to say, “All these damn n------ been to the Army and come back and think themselves something.” The car was stopped by more than 20 armed white men, none of them masked, at the bridge over the Apalachee River about 50 miles from Atlanta. The mob evidently planned to murder only Malcom, until Malcom’s wife called out the name of someone in the mob, which then took both couples to the riverbank and shot them all at least 60 times....

...we cannot know about the social dynamics that obstructed justice in the most lurid crime in the year that lit the fuse that blew up Jim Crow....

"Isn't that nice? I agree that slavery was an abomination, but I'm going to be even more generous... I regret the murder of an estimated 61 million people whom the former USSR executed, slaughtered, starved, beat or tortured to death. I also regret the Chinese government's slaughter of 45 million Chinese; Hitler's slaughter of 6 million Jews; the Khmer Rouge's murder of 2 million Cambodians; the half a million Ugandans murdered by Idi Amin's death squads; the million Hutus and Tutsis murdered in Rwanda's genocidal bloodbath; and slavery that still exists in the Sudan and Mauritania.

All of these, and many more, are horrible injustices at least as horrible as the slavery that existed in the U.S. But after all the regrets and apologies for injustices, what comes next? "
Walter E. Williams suggests a resolution that "
also apologizes for our government-sanctioned school system that delivers fraudulent education, thereby consigning many of its black citizens to the bottom rungs of the economic ladder."

If it helps my Representative feel better to apologize for something he didn't do, let the pitiful one do it. As long as he understands he doesn't represent me in the doing of it.

Apologies are worthless, when they happen when all the people who suffered injustice are now dead. It is probably even more so when all the people responsible for the laws are dead and are not making any apologies.

This is almost is bad as a pope making an apology for the injustices suffered by Protestants through the centuries, e.g., [URL=http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=apolinq]]]Apology or Inquisition?[/URL]
