Do you think the federal government should issue an official apology to the American Indians?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 21, 2005
“An apology isn’t going to do much. They should offer them some sort of compensation, like health care or something they can really use.”
“Yes, of course. If we did any thing like this to anyone else in the world, it would be considered an atrocity. They have wiped out a beautiful culture, and I don’t think they can apologize enough.”
“More than an apology is necessary when you take into consideration that they are one of the most incarcerated minorities in the United States, and that tendencies toward them haven’t changed.”
“Yes, and while they are at it they should revoke the medals of honor that they gave to the soldiers who participated in the massacre at Wounded Knee.”
