We cannot heal from that which we deny.
May there be healing now. May we be that brave
and care that much.
Our nation was born in genocide.… We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode.
— Martin Luther King Jr.
