White families wear yokes, chains while apologizing for slavery

If you’ve ever felt the need to apologize for slavery, today is your lucky day!
A group called The Lifeline Expedition will put you in chains and let you be humiliated by blacks, all in the name of healing.

NEWPORT – The sight of a 13-year-old boy with a yoke over his head and his hands tied in chains was perhaps the most controversial image in Thursday’s “slavery reconciliation march” through the streets of Newport.
Jacob Lienau of Camano Island in Washington said he decided on his own to wear the yoke and chains after seeing a painting of African slave children wearing them in the 19th century, and hearing about the march.
Lienau and his large family, including his parents, Shari and Michael Lienau, and their four biological children and five adopted children, are part of the Lifeline Expedition that is visiting prominent American slave-trading ports from the Colonial era this month. They marched in Marblehead, Salem and Boston in Massachusetts earlier this week and in Providence on Wednesday.
“We recognize this is an unusual form of symbolic action,” said a brochure the marchers handed out to passersby. “Our hope and prayer is that this form of apology will speak in ways that words cannot.”
The group submitted a letter to the Newport City Council, asking the council to vote on a letter of apology for the city’s past involvement in the slave trade. City councils in Liverpool and Bristol in England approved such letters.
The group then left Newport for Virginia, where they will march in Richmond, Jamestown and Williamsburg, and then on to South Carolina, where they will march in Charleston.
I hear that if you pay for the premium package it comes with an authentic whipping, which is the perfect cure for white folks who feel a little extra guilty.
Seriously though, what kind of “man” would ever allow his son to be emasculated like this?
White guilt
Father and son experience “healing”
White guilt
The “healing” continues

This is so asinine! I never owned slaves, nor my parents, nor grand parents, nor great grand parents. In fact: My ancestors were among those who fought to free the slaves. I am sick and tired of all the guilt these sub-cockroaches try to push on white people just because of our skin color.

This is so asinine! I never owned slaves, nor my parents, nor grand parents, nor great grand parents. In fact: My ancestors were among those who fought to free the slaves. I am sick and tired of all the guilt these sub-human cockroaches try to push on white people just because of our skin color. I feel no guilt and will never apologize for something that happened a long time ago, to "people" who are long dead. There isn't one black living today that has any clue what it was like to live as a slave. No no no, not today ! Today, blacks are coddled, allowed to run amok, given eveything they need, allowed to cheat ans steal and the white fools like you all feel so guilty, it is now the normal.

These white people are stupid if they allow this to happen. Put the blacks in the chains so THEY will feel what it was like since they NEVER did!

well I guess black sh-t happens. lets see... your family fought to stop slavery but u want us today to be in chains to know what it feels like. hummmm, don't know if your an abolitionist
or the kkk
