Must Be the Season for Apologies

The Senate resolution apologizing for slavery (S. Con. Res. 26; pdf)  is only 5 pages long. Please read the whole thing:

…Whereas an apology for centuries of brutal dehumanization
and injustices cannot erase the past, but confession of
the wrongs committed and a formal apology to African-
Americans
will help bind the wounds of the Nation that
are rooted in slavery and can speed racial healing and
reconciliation and help the people of the United States
understand the past and honor the history of all people
of the United States…
