Should States Apologize for Slavery?
TIME Magazine asks this question. What do you think?
I personally do see value in these “sponsored apologies” like this one and the one by Bill Clinton on for the Tuskegee Experiment.
However, it is important to understand that these types of symbolic gestures are not and should not be the goal of the civil rights activist. The activist’s goal(s) should be more about creating present-day solutions than securing apologies for yesterday’s evils.
