Ignorant Question of the Century
Washington Post:- "The Senate unanimously passed a resolution yesterday apologizing for slavery, making way for a joint congressional resolution and the latest attempt by the federal government to take responsibility for 2 1/2 centuries of slavery.""You wonder why we didn't do it 100 years ago," Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), lead sponsor of the resolution said.
Why "we" didn't apologize 100 years ago?
No... actually I don't wonder Senator, YOU DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES WHO OPPOSED ABOLISHING SLAVERY you moron.... no wonder you all feel so guilty NOW, 100 years later, you were the ones who worked so hard to keep African Americans enslaved and still do so to this day. Senator, a quick google would have told you that 100 years ago (1909) Democrats were too busy defending Jim Crow laws to prevent blacks from voting and was when " White Democrats used their power to segregate public spaces and facilities in law and reestablish dominance over blacks in the South." Apology was the last thing on Democrats minds 100 years ago.
Yet you wonder...
Of course the Democrat controlled news media and the leftist college professors say it is the Republicans that need to apologize...
"Carol M. Swain, a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University who had pushed for the Bush administration to issue an apology, called the Democratic-controlled Senate's resolution "meaningless" since the party and federal government are led by a black president and black voters are closely aligned with the Democratic party.
"The Republican Party needed to do it," Swain said. "It would have shed that racist scab on the party."
Republicans freed the slaves and voted to pass civil rights legislation... but no word from you about the racist scab that goes by the name of Senator Robert KKK Byrd (D) and his pals the Rev's Al Sharpton (D), Jesse Jackson (D) and Jeremiah Wright (O)?
