Is “sorry” enough for slavery?

Filed under: The past that is still with us — John Maass @ 3:26 pm

The BBC on its website has for some reason decided to poll (unscientifically) anyone who reads its pages about a thorny issue:  is apologizing for slavery anough or is more needed for atonement?  As the site points out, next year marks the 200th anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the UK.  The responses so far are interesting though some are a bit intemperate.  Looks like one must register to give a written opinion, but not to read the responses.
