symbolic apology for the slave trade

I dunno. I like the idea of a “white” apology for slavery very much, but I was distressed reading the story with an ad rating women’s legs on the same page. The flesh trade seems all too alive and persistent . . .
At any rate, Barbados both promoted and resisted (?) the slave trade. The same story is on the AP “mainstream” media coverage as that provided by BlackPlanet. Link passed on by Tee on the social justice listserv.
