Maybe the senators that didn't support the apology were concerned that it might open the door toward some kind of reparations... I dunno.

I certainly think an apology or at least an expression of extreme regret is in order.

I don't think anyone would be pro-lynching unless we caught a suicide bomber before he could detonate.


I don't see how expressing regret for the Senate's past history of not outlawing lynching (most of which efforts didn't happen while these Senators were even in office) could possibly be construed as supporting future efforts toward reparations.

I just think they're too scared of the bigot vote.
