Racism and What Makes It OK

If you are irrefutably exposed as a racist, some people feel an apology will make it all better. So I don't blame George Allen, Mel Gibson, Andrew Young, or any other public bigot for trying that. The truth is however, that these guys are racists. Their words were spoken sincerely and reflect their true nature.

I am all for forgiveness, but apologies like the ones of these ignoramuses are so disingenuous. It all just seems like a public relations process that makes racism an accepted practice in public life.
