re: #410 Belafon

I wonder just how much all of this is a large part of our country being unable to admit they were wrong. For example, take slavery and racism. As a Democrat, I admit the party fucked up, but we did decide to give it up. When you ask a Republican why their party decided to run with it, all you get is the usual “We’re not racists, the Democrat party is, and blacks just need to work harder.”

I’ve always chalked it up to some misplaced sense of pride. A good example; the Turks and the Armenian Genocide.

A lot of Turks will say - and have said quite openly - that admitting to having committed genocide against the Armenians is tantamount to admitting to being monsters, and their sense of national (or ethnic) pride will simply not allow them to do that.

Yet, of course, the Germans apologized for their genocidal atrocities in WWII - and those Turks who deny the Armenian Genocide usually strain to find an answer for why they shouldn’t.
