You might want to stop and take a breath before firing off your replies.
Seems you've been getting a little over the top lately (even for you). I
don't know where you've been hearing those "lame arguments" about apologies
owing from anyone white. Never heard any of that myself. I have heard some
noises every once and a while from blacks (and perhaps others) who feel
entitled to reparations *from the government* for what happened to slaves
and their descendants in the US, but nothing like "we want every white
person in America to say they're sorry."
