SORRY...IS NOT JUST A WORD, IT IS AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF AN INJURY AND THE FIRST NECESSARY STEP TOWARD FORGIVENESS

"There comes a time in the history of nations when their peoples must become fully reconciled to their past if they are to go forward with confidence to embrace their future" The Right Honorable Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia 13 February 2008.

This is an extract from the 'Sorry' speech Kevin Rudd made in Parliament to acknowledge the wrongs of past governments which enacted laws on behalf of the Australian people that inflicted genocide and great suffering on the Indigenous people of Australia. It was an acknowledgment and apology that was long overdue. And an apology that was necessary in order for our country to put the past to bed and go forward into the future. Saying sorry was not the end, but the beginning. The beginning of a healing process for ALL Australians, indigenous and non-indigenous alike.

There was never any doubt that a BLACK man putting his hand up for the Presidency of the USA, and becoming a serious contender as Barack Obama has proven to be was always going to bring out the worst in a country that was built on theft, rape, murder and slavery. All of which was done without blinking an eye and for which the survivors have never received anything but more abuse.

vixee flitted into mylady_arwen_1's room today about 2 hours into a chat that had been in progress about the need for America to own up to its past and not get pissy because a black man (Pastor Wright) slams the truth in your faces. Her attitude was flippant, as it usually is when the conversation centres on issues she cannot make a contribution to. I left the room as I know this is Vixee's safe haven. By her own admission she is "special and gets special treatment" I knew if I had stayed I would have challenged her offensive manner and been red dotted. That is usually how it goes for me, when Arwen is not in the room. I can live with that, I just leave.

At various times I have heard Vixee screaming into a microphone "My land was bought and paid for, I don't owe anyone an apology!"

We hear Israeli's make the same claim about land they now occupy in Palestine.

The hypocrisy from Americans like Vixee and millions more just like her is sickening. Vixee will scream for hours about the injustices to the Palestinians and then refer to Native Americans as "scalpers" and be flippant about any notion of an apology to black Americans for hundreds of years of suffering and discrimination. Oh sure the laws have changed since the 1960's, but too many general attitudes have not. Black Americans have had to fight for basic human rights that Americans like Vixee have taken for granted from birth.


"GOD DAMN YOU AMERICA" when are you going to own up to the sins of your past?

"GOD DAMN YOU AMERICA" when are you going to stop invading other countries and killing innocent people?

"GOD DAMN YOU AMERICA" when are you going to accept that your country should be setting a better example to the rest of the world?

"GOD DAMN YOU AMERICA" and if you don't like this said, what are you going to do about it? So we can say "GOD BLESS AMERICA"

You see dear Rattlers, how some Americans and even those pretending to be Americans like Big Mac can't handle the truth. They scream "shut her up!" "zip it loud mouth" rather than reflect on their own history and ask themselves WHY do so many people, even fellow Americans with the guts to speak out, say damn you America!

AUNTY KATE said...

Dear Rattlers this was send to me today for one of our Paltalk chatters who cares about the USA and is off her arse doing something and trying to motivate others to do the same.

Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves and
Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. This is how one heals. Those who wanted to dismiss the behaviors needed to mend bad ways even as a collective only perpetuate the problems.

I think an apology for slavery and Jim Crow in America would be very appropriate.

I am "sorry" Barack had to distance himself from Reverand Wright's Comments. When he does this, he distances himself from the absolute truth.

I am a white man, and I am ashammed, and disgusted by what these "rich white supremist" have done, and continue to do, to all of us, but especially by what they have done to our black brothers and sisters.

Reverand Wright is absolutely correct about the inhumane treatment. He, and his people have suffered their entire lifetimes at the dirty hands of these nazi monster bankster's, who run America. He has every right to be enraged by their conduct. Everyone should be. I know I am. However, "I will not allow them to reduce me to the level of hate." George Washington Carver

Lady Arwen you seem to be ignorant on history.
Anyone who truly knows history would know the Palestinian claim to land is laughable. They're Arabs, and that's all they are. Their whole culture, heritage and everything associated with it have long been bred out centuries ago. It was the Romans that gave them the name "Palestinians" (which by the way was just to piss them off)
Formerly named "Philistine" meaning (people from the sea) they sailed across the Aegean for one purpose .... wait for it ..... here it comes ......
TO STEAL LAND !!!!!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA your beloved Palestinians are the REAL LAND THIEVES !!!


Now run along and read some books

Anonymous 8:58 You seem incapable of reading even a blog and comprehending the content, so one cannot imagine what you would gain from reading anything more complex. The comments mentioned in my blog were made in My Lady Arwen's room, and not by the good Lady Arwen herself.

there will be NO APOLOGY for slavery or jim crow because there is no one alive to make the apology and no one alive to apologise to. enough pandering to racist special interest groups.

All I ask is that people, who have used the Rev Wright's Sermon, as a tool of attack on Senator Obama , actually enjoy the entire "Sermon". After having listened to the Sermon: 1. use a Biblical site to find all references to "damnation" in regards to GOD'S words and admonishments.
2.Ask yourself ,"have you ever heard a family member, friend associate co-worker, supervisor etc. use remark, directed at a cultural(racial) group that were incendiary, derogatory, inflammatory etc. in your presence ? When you heard this remark, did you repudiate, denounce, and reject the person and/or the remark?
Secondarily, in regard to Rev Wright as a Biblical individual, many have a question about his veracity, even question his patriotism. To you I suggest your disingenuousness, especially when you disregard the financial resources provided "so-called "right wing evangelical ministers, as well as republican politicians by the cultist, Sun Myung Moon.
I know you may not have the energy to candidly substantiate your positions on issues, I will provide you with some sources. Please take time to examine, during your calisthenics of jumping to conclusions.
