Dr Sentamu, Archbishop of York:
He added: “This community was involved in a very terrible trade, Africans were involved in a very terrible trade, the Church was involved in a very terrible trade… it’s important that we all own up to what was collectively done.”
By dead people you twat! Not us, we weren’t born. They are all dead. Apology only means something if the protagonists apologise to those injured. They cannot because they are all dead and have been for two hundred years. Any apology by this generation for the sins of past generations is nothing more than hollow, self-indulgent rhetoric.
I wonder, will the good doctor be demanding an apology from the Arab slavers?
