DETROIT, July 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Detroit Branch NAACP President, Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony:
Congressman Thaddeus McCotter is misguided in his attempts to force President Barack Obama to apologize for his remarks to the Cambridge Police Department. If Congressman McCotter is interested in passing resolutions for apologies then he should start by issuing an apology to the citizens of Michigan for the current state of the economic climate in Michigan. Perhaps the Congressman should present a resolution apologizing to the thousands of mentally ill people in Michigan who can't receive adequate care because of the lack of mental health facilities here. Congressman McCotter should pass a resolution apologizing to every American for the failure to pass a national healthcare program. A healthcare resolution would benefit every American regardless of race, ethnicity, sex or vocation. America needs fewer apologies and more advocacy to achieve a better quality of life for all people.
