« Marian's Blog does Open Source Radio, tonight | Main | New Orleans, race, White voters: Or why ex-mayor Marc Morial is NOT Louisiana Governor »

17 May 2006



Marian, finally got a chance to listen to this broadcast and I really enjoyed your comments. Thanks for posting about it on your blog so we could listen in!


Dear SB: Thanks for your comment. I think it's extremely well put when you say you're still shocked and horrified by slavery. I think many, many people are; I know I am, and I don't think that's only because I am a descendant. Now we have to figure out the things we must do. Thanks again.


It might be strange to say, but I am still so shocked and horrified by slavery. I feel like it is a festering wound that this country covered over but never cleaned up and let heal. That is why each time we brush up against it, it is so painful.

I know that none of our politicians has the decency to apologize, so I am going to do it myself. I am so sorry it happened. I am sorry for any part my ancestors may have played in it. I am sorry if slavery harmed your ancestors, and I am sorry if the repercussions continue to harm you and your family and friends. I am sorry if I have let it continue, either through my actions or inaction.

I promise to work for peace and justice and freedom in any way I can. I will work to root out my prejudices and racist tendencies. I want to make this world a better place.
