Mexico demands apology for colonial ’abuses’, Spain says no

Mexican President Andres Lopez Obrador said on Monday he had asked the Spanish government and Pope Francis to apologize to indigenous Mexicans for ’colonial abuses’. Speaking at an archaeological zone in the state of Tabasco, Lopez Obrador said the cited massacres took place during the Spanish conquest at the beginning of the 16th century. Spain said it ’firmly rejects’ the request.

How about you show you give a damn about your people before saying other countries have to and wipe the cartels out. I’m certain surrounding countries would be happy to help with that

Why is it that people nowadays are crying about spilled milk? How bored are people? Buuhuu... Romans took over most of Europe and ruined the letters we used before! Italians should apologize! Buuhuu... because of, most likely Mongols, half of Europe was wiped out (pest)! Buuhuu... my life as GROWN UP is shitty because of my parents... not because I AS A GROWN UP should get my shit together!

Did he also ask all the indigenous tribes who allied with the Spanish and betrayed their own? Meanwhile Mexico is one of the most violent and corrupt countries on earth. Spain one of the most peaceful.

Imagine if America were to force Britain to apologize for the war of 1812 or for supporting the confederacy during the civil war.

Well, no, you appropriated the spanish culture and that is unacceptable. And for you to say that in spanish is even more outrageous. And for that the spanish goverment demands an appology, 1 000 000 schmeckles and accepting any further punishment deemed necesarry by the world social justice council. Have a wonderful day and fuck you.
