The Church of England apologizes for participating the slave trade Hoteph Beloved Sisters And Brothers: Beloved, it is ignorance to accept and honor an apology without repentance and a willingness to pay for the crime the apology is being offered for, when it come to the action and implementation of Chattel slavery, all who participated in supporting that institution, is indebted to our Enslaved Ancestors and it is the Diaspora Afrikans, those that are now in the Diaspora by traveling the Middle Passage journey, they have the legal Divine authority to honor and grant acceptance of such an apology. Who with their Divine mind and is a child of our Enslaved Ancestors, care what the Church of England has done in the way of apologizing for the Evil thay have committed against our Enslaved Ancestors, thus against their Children as well, what good is covering yourselves in Sack Cloth and wailing to a God that does not hear or answer prayer, serving as a ritual of regret, sorrow, claiming to be apologetic for the Sins of your Fathers, while acting under the flag of your government and Church. Beloved, when there is no action of repentance that prove your seriousness and sincere apology for the evil done against a people and such an apology is claimed by those committing the crime, such is not to be worthy of any respect coming from those now pretending to apologize for such a Horrible and barbaric act, carried out against the children of the middle passage mother and father, imprisoning them in an institution referred to as Chattel Slavery and an apology come not with proof of it being a sincere one, if some form of restitution is not rendered that will satisfy the victims, in this case the Children of our enslaved Ancestors, now having the Divine Right to act in our Enslaved absent, such an apology is as chaff before the wind, or a house built on sanking sand, in other word it is worthless. Reparation must serve as the verifier of the sincerity of any apology offered in the Name of Chattel Slavery, there must be no compromise on that method of acceptance for the evil done against our Enslaved Ancestors and such an act of paying will serve as an acceptance and acknowledgment by the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors, of such an apology coming from those now seeing fit to apologize for their Wrong done against Black so call Afrikan people. Just as Chattel Slavery was acted in concert with others, so should an apology come to the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors and so shall it be paid in restitution to our Enslaved Ancestors, just as the criminals got together to commit the crime of Chattel slavery,so should they get together to offer their apology and pay their restitution for the evil done against the Enslaved Black so call Afrikans. The Afrikans in Afrika also has a duty to pay tribute to our Enslaved Ancestors for the complicity shown in the effort to Enslave the Black so call Afrikans and repent for such a traitorous Act, but to apologize would be like the Afrikans acted under the influence of our Divine mind, when in fact the Afrikans did not, those that assisted in the Slave round-up, had to be in a state of temporary insanity, thus relieving them of conscience awareness of what they were doing and the payment for such insanity is to welcome the children of our Enslaved ancestors back Home and to share the Land with an understanding that the Children of the Middle passage has a Right to establish a state of their own so that they can become self-Govern and become a part of a coming United states of Afrika, serving as a Federal Union of a Black Nation. A regret is not an apology and we must not accept anything less than an apology with payment of restitution, for the action of Chattel Slavery against our Black mother and Father.

Yes, African must pay Afro Americans reparation which already has been going on for years. If I may ask, Which of the Africans are to pay the reparation and by what means? You or Me?(As Citizens of Africa) Ogie Thomas Johnson <[email protected]> wrote: And when would Africans apologize for selling their people into slavery? Is it the case that only others are guilty and need to apologize and that Africans are innocent and do not need to apologize? African leaders are still selling their people as their forefathers sold their people, so are they guilty and need to be remorseful and apologize? Africans must pay restitution to African-Americans. This is my stance; I will not budge. It is now time to expect Africans to behave like adults rather than children and not making excuses for their continued idiotic behaviors, such as stealing from their people's money.

ADVERTISEMENT Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and his deputy in the Church of England, Archbishop of York John Sentamu, blessed the crowd with a short prayer before the procession set off from the Whitehall government district. At the head of the marchers was a banner reading: "March of Witness, Remembrance, Repentance, Restoration" while some bore wooden crosses, according to an AFP reporter at the scene. The march, which included people of all ages, Britons and foreign guests, including many from Africa, passed the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, where the law banning the trade in slaves was passed on March 25, 1807. On the banks of the River Thames, a wreath with the inscription "2704" -- the number of British boats that left from London docks to transport slaves across the North Atlantic Ocean -- was placed on a boat. The wreath was taken to the docks before being returned up river for a bicentenary service on Tuesday at Westminster Abbey. Williams said in a prayer: "We command to (God) all those who died as a consequence of the slave trade -- in raids, in convoys of captives, in the holds of prisons and of slave ships, in labour and in loneliness." The Church of England, which itself had slaves on plantations in the Caribbean, made a formal apology last year for its involvement. Nearly three million black people are thought to have been shipped across the North Atlantic Ocean in British slave boats between 1700 and the start of the 19th century. Trade in black slaves was banned throughout the British empire by the 1807 law, imposing a fine of 100 pounds per slave found on any British boat. Slavery was completely outlawed in British colonies in 1833. Among the walkers were a group who walked 250 miles in yokes and chains from Hull, the parliamentary seat of the abolitionist MP William Wilberforce.
