Doc,

Gotta be honest here. First, yes, slavery was worse than your mother being pistol-whipped. You can't compare something that happened to millions to something that happened to one. You can't compare something that was promoted by government to something that was initiated by a rogue criminal.

Having said that - I don't think Virginia, as a state, should formally apologize. I think the United States Congress, as a whole, should do so so. And really, I don't care if it only consoles one African-American in the entiere country. It's something our government owes to 20 - 30% of our population. And we've owed it to them for a long time. Just my opinion...
