Rev. Wright says America must "confess" for slavery.

In an interview with Bill Moyers, Rev. Jeremiah Wright stated that he would go after Barack Obama if he were to become President. Wright's reason for this is that Obama will be the leader of a broken system.

Wright then went on to say that he will not stop until America confesses to slavery and apologizes for slavery.

Reverend Wright, the government of the United States of America has confessed to slavery. It is called, the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment. America did better than apologize for slavery, America (the Union) laid down 364,511 men dead and 281,881 men maimed on the battlefield to end slavery.

Despite what you said, this is not about America, this is about you. It is insufficient to you, that America confessed to slavery and ended slavery 140+ years ago. You want America to confess to you, to apologize to you when in fact you should be thanking America.

Rev. Wright, no one in America today was a slave or a slave owner. In other words, no one today has anything to confess or apologize for in terms of slavery.
