This is quite a surprising call for the Democats to apologize to the Blacks for all the troubles they have encountered throughout our history.

That's a fascinating document. I would like to see a Democratic refutation of it, since it is highly polemic I instinctively doubt its full veracity - I mean, I wonder if white racism really follows the lines of "Democrat vs. Republican" that tightly. But one thing it does prove - the Democrats have no basis for claiming the "high ground" in the ugly history of racism in this country. It really makes me wonder how they have managed to convince Blacks that they are their friends while Republicans (who played big roles in fighting for their freedom) were and continute to be their enemies.
