    People are not satisfied with the San Francisco city government’s progress in providing reparations to descendants of African Americans who have suffered historical discrimination, according to a new report. Although a city government panel proposed monetary reparations for eligible Black residents last year – with some potentially receiving $5 million, "So far, all they’ve received is an apology," The Washington Post reported. The Post detailed how the city has had to cut funding for the project, and that people are growing frustrated over the lack of progress on reparations. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors put out an official apology...

    The city of San Francisco has issued a formal apology to Black residents for systemic racist and discriminatory policies over past decades.

The resolution identified actions including redlining, the razing of the Fillmore neighborhood and policies...

    “I want to apologize to the people of Israel for the horrible thing the South African government did. We are sorry.” Regent Xami Thomas, leader of the Khoi Kingdom of Southern Africa, delivered this message to a packed audience at the Friends of Zion Museum (FOZ) in the heart of Jerusalem on the night of February 1. The crowd cheered their approval. This was, after all, words of support from the citizens of the nation that had dragged Israel to the International Court of Justice on accusations of genocide. Thomas was not done, though. “The government does not represent all...

    The BBC news network has issued an apology for regurgitating a false claim from the terrorist organization Hamas that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were executing Palestinians inside Gaza. The BBC reported on Christmas Eve that Israel was carrying out “summary executions” of Palestinian civilians inside Gaza, Deadline reported. The report said that the news agency AFP, which said it could not verify the claims, appeared to be the source of the story. “In overnight output [on BBC radio news bulletins] we ran a story about Hamas accusing the Israeli army of carrying out summary executions in the Gaza strip,”...

    MK Iman Khatib-Yasin (United Arab List) apologized on Sunday evening after she denied, earlier in the day, the horrors of the October 7th massacre in southern Israel. "I was mistaken, I am sorry for it and apologize.

From the first day, I expressed a clear position regarding the condemnation and denunciation of these terrible acts against Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel on that black Saturday, and I should emphasize...

    Feminist author Naomi Wolf offered a formal apology to conservatives who "put America first" after reviewing newly-released footage of the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot. "Peaceful Republicans and conservatives as a whole have been demonized by the story told by Democrats in leadership of what happened that day," Wolf said in a lengthy post on Substack Thursday. "Republicans, conservatives, I am sorry. I also believed wholesale so much else that has since turned out not to be as I was told it was by NPR, MSNBC and the New York Times," Wolf also said. "Anyone in leadership who misrepresented to...

    There is no way to avoid this moment. The formal letter of apology. From me. To Conservatives and to those who “put America first” everywhere. It’s tempting to sweep this confrontation with my own gullibility under the rug — to “move on” without ever acknowledging that I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes, multiplied by the tens of thousands and millions on the part of people just like me, hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways.

    A Mexican cartel turned over five of its members and a written apology for the kidnapping and murder of American citizens. Four Americans crossed into Mexico from Brownsville, Texas last Friday. Their rented vehicle came under gunfire and they were taken by a faction of the Gulf cartel. Two of the Americans, Zindell Brown, and Shaeed Woodard, died. Eric Williams has a serious leg injury, and the lone woman, Latavia McGee. was left physically unharmed. The Americans traveled from South Carolina, though the rented vehicle had North Carolina license plates. A fifth American remained behind in Brownsville because she did...

    After claiming its spy balloon was a harmless weather balloon and angrily condemning the Biden administration for shooting the balloon down (after it crossed the continental U.S.), the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is now not only demanding that the U.S. take all the blame for the incident but also that the U.S. abandon its unofficial ally Taiwan. As usual, the genocidal CCP is uninhibited by any interest in truth or justice.CCP state propaganda outlet Xinhua News published a statement from a Chinese Foreign Ministry (FM) spokesman on Feb. 19. The spokesman said that China acceded to a U.S. request and...

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Monday (Dec 19) officially apologised for 250 years of the Netherlands' involvement in slavery, calling it a "crime against humanity". The apology comes almost 150 years after the end of slavery in the European country's overseas colonies, which included Suriname and islands like Curacao and Aruba in the Caribbean and Indonesia in the East. In the first of the former Dutch colonies to react, Aruba's Prime Minister Evelyn Wever-Croes accepted the apology, but others like the island of Sint Maarten said it would not.

    Former President Donald Trump has been under attack since he began stumping for GOP candidates ahead of the midterms. Those incendiary remarks have gone into overdrive since Election Day on Wednesday, even from Republican supporters who spoke out against him after he referred to Florida governor Ron DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious” during a final rally pre-midterm rally in Pennsylvania.Throughout the election, Trump has been a top supporter of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, which earned his criticism, most notably from one of his biggest media adversaries, Maggie Hagaman of the New York Times. After Oz’s stunning loss to John...

    One year ago, President Joe Biden falsely accused Del Rio Sector Horse Patrol Unit agents of using horses to run over migrants and of strapping them from horseback. The president refused to apologize to the agents despite his accusations being proven to be untrue. “To see people treated like they did, horses running them over and people getting strapped, it’s outrageous I promise you those people will pay,” Biden said one year ago. Despite no publicly available evidence to back up his claims, the accusations stuck and the president has not apologized to the agents involved in the incident.

    The Daily Signal ^ | August 26, 2022 | Jarrett Stepman
    Arguing for keeping “presentism” out of history seems like a straightforward argument from an acknowledged history scholar, right? Wrong. Not these days. The president of the American Historical Association, James H. Sweet, published an essay last week arguing that scholars should bar “presentism” from history. Sweet’s column in the American Historical Association magazine, Perspectives on History, argued that “doing history with integrity requires us to interpret elements of the past not through the optics of the present but within the worlds of our historical actors.” Pretty basic stuff. Shortly thereafter, Sweet was mobbed by those who clearly didn’t like his...

    A major organization of Inuit native Canadians has insisted that Pope Francis’ apology was insufficient, calling on the Catholic Church to pony up monetary reparations. Pope Francis’ apology is “only one step towards reconciliation,” Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) said in a statement following the pontiff’s declaration of sorrow this week for the ways in which many Christians “supported the colonizing mentality of the powers that oppressed the indigenous peoples.” “Inuit have finally been heard and their experiences acknowledged,” said Aluki Kotierk, president of NTI, which sent a delegation of 55 Nunavut Inuit to Edmonton to witness the papal apology. Now...
