I agree with Robert, especially about Native American Indians. I am ashamed to be an American as far as our "conquest" of the Indians is concerned. Everything we did to them was dishonest and dastardly and inhumane.
There are a lot of things that have happened since Rosa Parks stayed in the front of that bus in the 1950',s especially during LBJ's term as president. We can not, however, repair all wrongs from the past in perpetuity, it has to be cut off and set within reasonable boundaries, like the first guy says, can I be responsible for something my ancestors I never even met did?
Still, we have to know this was coming. The jews sued insurance companies for not paying out monies that belonged to their relatives (WWII), and with the tobacco law suits going the way they are, someone had to reach for this eventually. However, in my opinion, if relief were granted, it would be limited, if not at trial then by the appeals process.
Without knowing more about the lawsuit I cannot really say the plaintiff is a "bitch", I think that is a bit harsh, even if the lawsuit was way off base. We don't know the lady.
Still, with the Indians, we have continually violated the very treaties we made with them, and we owe them big time for that alone, and since the violations are continuing I feel we can be made to pay for that.
