This weekend marks the mint
Iitt anniversary ofthe abolition ofthe slave
it trade by Act of Parliament. The procession
from Hull to mark this anniversary has
been accompanied by a chorus of‘ mea
cuppas' from the great and the good.
Politicians, religious leaders and social
activists have illumined in to bewail the
undoubted horrors and to
apologise for British complicity in this
social evil.
Those marching have been shackled
hand and foot and have been wearing
sweatshirts saying: "So sorry."
And yet this should be a time of
celebration and for
Brolaire role in bringing this great
oppression and cruelty to an end. Why do
the leaders and people ofthis country find
it so difficult to acknowledge their
achievements and to recognise the true
source eitheir moral commitments?
lfa civilisation is constantly criticised, run
down and , the danger is
that its virtues will cease to flourish.
According to W. E. H. Le we the great
historian, the Act , andthe
struggle that letto it, marks the
perfectly virtuous pages in the history of
this nation. trom HI!”
IN BRITAIN

Stop carrying around meaningless guilt for the actions of your predecessors.

Right because I'm supposed to be sorry for something that my ancestors did, in a generation I never existed in, in a country I have never been to, for a crime I never committed.   
So that the descendants of the slaves, who were never wronged themselves, can pretend like I owe them some sort of apology, solely based on the fact that they were born a different color.    
   
   
...seems logical.

I don't think its an apology as much as an acknowledgment. Regardless of whether you committed the crime, it was your ancestors, people from your culture, people who raised the people who raised the people etc who raised you.

You're basically saying "Wow, those guys sucked, I won't do that"

1. Barbary pirates were African Muslims who took about 1 million white slaves during the same exact time period as the Euro/American slave trade
2. Africans sold each other to white slavers
3. Had it not been for the slave trade, most Africans wouldn't be in America or Europe
4. The sins of the father do not pass to his sons
5. Britain panders to its minorities way too much
6. Anyone who participates in that is a ******* retard for thinking it's atonement
7. **** you

I'm not going to feel guilty about slavery just because I'm white. What the **** is this ********? Where did they find assholes to volunteer for something as retarded as this?
