Instead of celebrating the 4th of July, the US should have an annal apology day

Apologize to people of color for all the racism, land theft, genocide and slavery.

Name a country that never practiced slavery.
Name another country that fought a civil war to end slavery

The debt’s been paid.

@Nitedoc Paid with blood.
@redredred the English ended slavery by voting, before the US civil war. But nobody thinks voting would help you avoid war! We understand how proud you are of that civil war. Reenacting but not reviewing it constantly.

@Roundandroundwego I’m fairly sure there’s a point to your comment but I cannot see it. Contained in the very name of the country you can see that it is and was the United STATES. Since we have no national plebiscite, all the votes in Massachusetts wouldn’t have affected Mississippi in the least.

The election of Lincoln and the impending democrat loss of the senate provoked the attack on fort sumpter and the resulting civil war.
Didn’t the USA end slavery after being a country for less than a hundred years?

In Europe they had slavery for thousands of years. China still has slave camps today.

Why single the USA out?

@jehova 🙄

@Kevinthegreat It's not just the slavery. It's the racism that goes on and on.

What there is of it is individual, not institutional.
All current slave owners?
Or ppl who’ve never owned a slave?

Anal or annual?

@Guardian well they did shaft the people mentioned 🤷🏼‍♂️

As always it's just wealthy white America that gets to determine just which bits of it's supposed history it wants to celebrate or apologise for....because it might attract a stray vote or two if a forthcoming vote is suddenly too tight to call.

As far as I know, "every other" country doesn't get defensive, nor wants to cover up, their history. In America, the ones who say, "everyone's too sensitive," suddenly become, the sensitive ones, about "true" American history.

Trying to figure out if you skipped a U or added an extra N...?

Race baiter.

Yes apologize to the natives for all the murder theft etc. Apologize to women and apologize to the worker.

@jehova pay what debt? And how can that be done if we stop spending money?
jehova · 31-35, M
@Slade dont spend on frivolous things pay our bills. Instead we just keep borrowing money. . . Something needs to change. Maybe we go isolationist for awhile. Bring the troops home balance our books and then move forward.

War ended slavery in the USA - the English used a vote. So did most countries. You didn't
We know how very very proud you are of that.

Charles I could not be reached for comment.@Roundandroundwego
Yeah, right like "should" applies to the USA.
Denialism ends all the discussions. NATO is allowed to do us all in and ain't no democracy going to slow it down.
Nitedoc · 51-55, M
An even better idea is to declare a day in which the people of color thanked the rest of us for freeing them from slavery!
calicuz · 56-60, M
Like the lady said: "You're lucky all we wanted was equality..........and not revenge."

Just research it for yourself. Don't have to take my word for it.

Look the stuff out there. Just have to go look for it. Do you think the media going tell the truth about Bifen and Trump actually working together and how they are both members of the same secret organization.

No, because the media owners are part of it

@HumanEarth leave your number, we will call back in 6 years to congratulate you
HumanEarth · 56-60, F
So your saying you won't even research it
