"It's easier for our legislatures to give an apology than to address the more serious issues facing them. If it makes one feel better to apologize then so be it but let's do something about these more serious problems."

Doc -

I partly agree with you. What we have to understand is that many of the social problems that you want us to concentrate on now are partially caused by the government sponsored discrimination I spoke of earlier. So why can't we do both?

I understand that these ills weren't caused by everyone, and weren't participated in by everyone. But what's new about that? People with no kids pay school taxes. People opposed to the current war are forced to pay for it. Anytime the federal government passes a law ( or in this case a proclamation) it doesn't apply to everyone. It's done for the good of the social fabric, or in this case the public psyche. Sometimes we should just do something as a nation for the simple reason that it's the right thing to do.
