|AFROMERICA - A Nation Under One God|
Keep Your Damn Apologies!|
A Black pundit recently commented on the Fox News network that when a writer begins name-calling in his or her articles, they lose all credibility with the reader. Well for those who hold his sentiments, you might as well go to another article now.
Nevertheless, what spineless, Uncle Tom, conformist, passivist old Negro-spirited, slave-master-ass-kissing Black person sanctioned apologies from U.S. states as needed or even slightly wanted by Black America to make everything all good? Who told them this is acceptable? Who?
And what white person honestly believes that an apology makes anything different, heals any wounds, or corrects the injustices faced by Blacks today or at any time during America’s enslavement and wicked treatment of African slaves and Black Americans? The guilt laid on the shoulders of whites will not move one hair as a result of a mere apology. Which begs the question – like a street-corner whore – what is Blacks suppose to say?
Presumptuously, as good Black Christians in America, we are suppose to forgive and forget, never again having any reason to challenge any more injustices done to us or our children from this day forward, is what whites would suppose. Neither are whites suppose to feel any more guilt or the burden of living the American dream in the face of any Black person while a large portion of the Black population live substandard lives.
Well, in the spirit of the resistant slave and speaking for many Black people who may feel what has just been said about this so-called issue of apologies for slavery; Keep your Damn apologies and stick them up your arrogant and condescending ass.
