On a more serious note, what good would an apology be. Definitely not to the younger generations (I realize I'm overgeneralizing, there are probably many who do not belong in this characterization, some even in this discussion group) who have no clue as to history, geography irregardless of their racial origin. I'm currently working with a group of teenagers at our local YMCA discussing civil rights, the civil war, touring Frederick Douglass's home. I'm amazed by the lack of knowledge even with so much local historic places around. To parphrase a quote, unless we remember/understand history we're doomed to repeat it.
