“The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history. Facing the Washington Monument that I spoke of is a memorial of Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed those who were enslaved even after Washington led our Revolution. Our country still struggles with the legacies of slavery and segregation, the past treatment of Native Americans. Human endeavor is by its nature imperfect. [American] History is often tragic, but unresolved, it can be a heavy weight.” Turkish Parliament speech, April 6, 2009. Part of Obama’s Worldwide Apology Tour. Obama always has a dark view of American history while he ignores the imperfections, flaws and conflicts in almost all other societies and cultures.
