The NAACP has gone after Robert Brown for failing to work on a slavery apology. For his part, Robert Brown calls such an apology insulting.
“Give me a break,” Brown said.
“I’m not going to accept an apology for something that killed millions of people, that raped women and took babies from their mothers and then sold them like you would a piece of equipment,” Brown said.
“My grandfathers would tan my hide.”
The NAACP did have nice things to say about Eric Johnson for his willingness to move forward with an apology.
Personally, I tend to agree with Brown. We did, after all, have a war you might have heard of to end slavery. Clearly most of the South fought on the wrong side, but at some point you really do have to move forward. But that’s just me. I didn’t grow up in this country.
