Lynching in Alabama - 1981

I was born in 1981.  January, 04, in fact.

Michael Donald was hanged in Mobile, Alabama March 20th, 1981 when I was 2 months old.

Did you know about this?  I sure didn't.  

Some would say its silly to apologize for slavery in the 1860's when "we" didn't have anything to do with it.  Is it cool if I apologize for a lynching in my life-time?

I'm sorry for those who thought this was a good idea.
