Yes, our country is very delicate and racism must end.

Kind of reminds me of the Susan Smith story.

If she had said that a white man had abducted her would you want her to apologize? Double standards only continue racism.
17 yrs ago - Saturday 5/14/05 - 12:25:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Speaking of double standards..

I'm still waiting for that national story on a missing black child

17 yrs ago - Saturday 5/21/05 - 11:39:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes! I think she should!

Agreed.
17 yrs ago - Thursday 5/26/05 - 2:06:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, but maybe the media should consider apologizing to the world for trying to brainwash us into thinking particular story is actually newsworthy material...

I agree with postal bear.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 12:18:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I dont think its just the Hispanics she has to apologize to...
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 12:20:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
she is an idiot..... she needs to apoologize to more than the hispanic men

exactly

Why? If she wanted to, fine. But, really I find no reason to make her. Are all Hispanics really that upset at her and are dying for an apology?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/7/05 - 9:03:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
She has a lot more than that to apologize for first.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/16/05 - 10:52:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think that she should worry about apologizing to her soon-to-be husband first. Then to her family and all of those people who spent so much time searching for her.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/16/05 - 10:56:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, forced apologies are disingenuous at best. What this ditsy broad needs to do is spend some time getting herself together. And I'm sorry, but if that guy still marries her after the little stunt she pulled, he's even more insane than she is.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/16/05 - 10:58:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
She should be sued by all the Hispanics whose reputation she damaged.

What, she didn't damage anyones reputation? In that case, no apology is necessary.

yeah right, keep waiting.

An uproar for public apology happened with Susan Smith and her false accusations several years ago... Did she ever apologize when she originally claimed a couple of African Americans stole her car with her kids in it?

As if it would have been sincere...
