Marianne Williamson Asked White People to Apologize to Black People for Past ‘Evils’

Prior to announcing her candidacy for the Democrat nomination for president, spiritual author Marianne Williamson asked white people at an event to apologize to the black people in attendance for the “evils” perpetrated against black people throughout United States history.

Williamson, whose “prayer” came during her “Love America Tour” at the Unity of Houston Church in 2018, asked the white people to hold hands with nearby black attendees.

As the audience repeated her every word, sentence by sentence, Williamson said:

As I speak, I am going to ask the white Americans in the room to please repeat after me. On behalf of myself and on behalf of my country, to you and all African Americans, from the beginning of our nation’s history, in honor of your ancestors and on behalf of your children please hear this from my heart. I apologize. Please forgive us. With this prayer I acknowledge the depth of the evils that have been perpetrated against black people in America. From slavery to lynchings to white supremacist laws to the denial of voting rights to all the ways, both large and small, all of the evil, all of them wrong, for all the opression, and all of the injustices, I apologize. Please forgive us.”

Did she pass the drug test afterwards?

I'm guilty of things I've done, or failed to do; that's a fact.

I'm not guilty of things that happened before my birth. Same for all.

Let's get a grip people, and do the best we're able for our families and others as we go forward. Scrap the victim mindset.

Well tell you what, reincarnate a real slave and I will. Plus the blacks now can also thank them for paying the price to have them born in the best country on earth.

I was taught you apologized when you did wrong. I didn’t own slaves and the ones who did are dead! So no.

Sure, right after she apologizes for every white person raped, robbed, or murdered by black people.

She could apologize for the massive amount of crime done by african-americans. Oh, wait, that's Trumps fault.

I’ve had both blacks and Mexicans try to kill me during my lifetime.
Seems kind of funny that I’m expected to apologize for still being alive.
p.s. I have also met nice blacks and Mexicans.

Who is going to apologize to me for the slavery put upon my Irish ancestors who came over during the potato famine... just kidding.
I thought welfare was reparations. No?

my family never owned any slaves, a lot of them fought and died in the civil war for the north, plus I've been paying taxes for the last 50 years which subsidize a lot of black fatherless children so when are they going to apologize to me and pay me the reparations my family is due?
total liberal leftist bs!

I attended the MLK event at the Civic Center and they pulled that shit. They had all the white people hold hands with the blacks. Now that was freaking awkward as we sang that "we shall overcome" bullsh!t. I won't be attending anymore.

Northwest Woodsman: I am truly sorry! Sorry that our ancestor brought them to this country. It was a huge mistake and it didn’t take long for them to realize it. That is why severe controls were initiated which remained in place until the 1960s. I am not a fan of Abraham Lincoln, however he supported returning them to Africa and may have succeeded had it not been for the Ford Theater episode.

She isn't a slave and I'm not a slave owner. So no apology needed.

Well, Black Africans need to apologize to black Americans for their ancestors rounding up and selling their own into slavery. White people did not make them into slaves, black people turned them into chattel that could be bought and sold. And that's the truth of the whole slavery history in the US. Black traders in Africa sold them to America.

No way in hell. My ancestors had nothing to do with it. And neither did the majority of white peoples ancestors. Someone is out of their mind.
