Okay... I was wrong...

Kind of.
So it seems that Congress is set to apologize for Slavery and Segregation.

S. CON. RES. 26 states that it's intent is to "...Apologize for the enslavement and racial segregation of African-Americans..."
But now what?
Are things any better?
Do you feel better?

But not so fast.
SCON 26 HD2, Page 5, lines 8-12 also include a disclaimer against ant support or endorsement of reparations or any legal action.
Is everything automatically better after this resolution?

(For those in Texas - Keep up to date on this story's developments. There is no need to have another Juneteenth situation.)

Tupac was a sharecropper? Since black folks on the east coast have stolen Juneteenth from Texas...ooops I mean celebrating it on the east coast. We are all about taking black folk holidays.

@ Ojo - Yeah... I thought the photoshop was pretty good too. I should credit whomever made it.

I'd never heard of Juneteenth until I moved here.
My response;
"You guys celebrate finding out that you were freed... three years late?"
But as everyone was sipping Crown Royal and eating Bar-B-Que, I just joined in.

The Obama effect has got them to say I apologize but not to say let's make them whole or at least talk about it.

By the way the picture of Pac is real. It was taken for one of his unreleased albums. I actually had that picture way back in 95.
