Have you ever heard of amnesty being granted to any victims of US sanctioned enslavement?

Why is there a double standard in America?  Why are the citizens of other nations being granted equal protection, equal rights and given preference over citizens that earned the right to live and work in America.  Citizens of America should not be forced to suffer in order for citizens of other nations seeking opportunities to take advantage of the "American Dream" by breaking the laws of the land.   Black Americans are fighting without amnesty for opportunities to live the "American Dream", a dream that has been and continues to be stolen as a result of public policies that oppress and minimizes the issues of the Black community.

Apology for Slavery

The US Congress and Senate issued non-binding resolutions to apologize for US sanctioned enslavement and legal segregation.  They were both non-binding to ensure that victims had no legal standing to request compensation for the cruelty and inhumane treatment.

Note that the Senate floor was nearly empty when the resolution was made and how the House apology was not front page news.

    Malcolm X said, "If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything".  It is time for victims of US sanctioned enslavement to stand for what is right.
