Linky Goodness

Morgan Freeberg in top form.

Seriously.  Go read it.  Yeah, it'll take you 5 minutes.

Then, Thomas Sowell points out something I've been saying for quite some time now.
When somebody who has never owned a slave apologizes for slavery to somebody who has never been a slave, then what began as mushy thinking has degenerated into theatrical absurdity-- or, worse yet, politics

Slavery has existed all over the planet for thousands of years, with black, white, yellow and other races being both slaves and enslavers. Does that mean that everybody ought to apologize to everybody else for what their ancestors did? Or are the only people who are supposed to feel guilty the ones who have money that others want to talk them out of?
