by A.man.I

SayItBlack.com asks, "Can African Americans expect a formal apology from the U. S. Government for the institution of slavery?"


Another question: Would a formal apology make a difference?

It would help ease certain tensions amongst races and allow other races to form receptive dialogue to discuss current state of conflict.

I'm not sure about an apology. The idea is more symbolic than anything. I'm not sure if there was a point. It would have made sense if it was in direct response to something more recent. For instance the goverment could apologize not for slavery but Jim Crowe to name one more recent condition.

The second the government admits wrongdoing, reparations will be the order of the day, so in a word, no it won't happen.

In another word, no it wouldn't make a difference.
