    It's a sign of weakness if you apologize because someone forces you too. It implies obedience. I don't think it's right when parents ask their children to "apologize, or else" and leave it at that. The child has to understand he did something wrong, and decide to apologize for it on his own.

    There is a trend among Whites that grows worse every year, which is apologizing to negroes for even the tiniest details, and not just for the slavery or the lynchings.(In spite of the fact that a very tiny percentage of Whites ever owned slaves or participated in lynchings)
    I have seen Whites in the grocery store inadvertantly veer their carts in front of a negro, realize what they "have done", and then apologize as if they physically hurt them.
    To the negro, if a White apologizes then to them that means they are weak. The once mighty warriors now groveling before one of the conquered.
    I used to be this way. "Why did I just say that?" I began to ask myself, because the negro never seemed to care or kept right on looking at me with contempt. It took me a while before I finally figured out that I had been brainwashed to grovel. Now I never apologize to them unless it is for something pretty obvious, such as an accidental bump.
    Whites are slowly being indoctrinated to prostrate themselves, even if their ancestors never owned a single slave. Each time one apologizes it is as if they are screaming out for all to hear “I am so sorry for what my people did to yours!

    Without apologizing for a genuine mistake the individual loses all credibility, the sooner you apologize, the better.

    Institutions apologizing for particular historical chapters is a different matter, especially because it's all about current day politics anyway, and it's always the usual suspects who have to apologize, the Germans because of WW2 and the Jewish business, the Anglosaxons for slavery and the conflicts with the Indians, the Afrikaners for Apartheid, the Church for the crusades and pogroms, and every state that matters in Europe for its colonialism.

    You don't see too often a progressive person having remorse about anything except for the things they don't claim to be themselves, even though they have a lot to ponder about.

    It depends on what's done wrong, people sometimes apologize for the sake of it or for the most stupid things which I find to be rather meek. Saying your sorry is generally of little use when you then make little effort to make sure what you're apologizing for doesn't re-occur.

    I think an apology today is more a thing of convenience if anything.

    Grin Only a sign of weakness if...

    Personally, I do not think an apology is a sign of weakness but rather an expression of our remorse after doing something hurtful and an invitation to invite forgiveness from the other person when it is truly meant. However, one should never apologize unless one is truly sorry. Apologizing just because you feel you should is a sign of weakness in its highest form and is allowing someone to control you.

    I separate the saying of "I'm sorry" from apologies.

    "I'm sorry." Is a statement of remorse that I'll only give if I'm truly remorseful, and had nothing to do with whether or not I think I am right.

    Apologies, well, that's a different story. An apology offer by a person is a sign of strength that they can admit to having wronged someone.

    Apologizing because you are forced to is a sign of weakness.

    And yes, I've gottn in some real sh*t in the past because someone told me to apologize (or worse, told me to say I'm sorry), or else. I usually replied "F-you I'll go for the or else"

    Apology is a Sign of Weakness

    Psychologically, apology is a sign of weakness whatever the case. In America white people are constasntly pressured to publicly apologize and admit their criminality when actually they are correct and honest. They are not allowed to defend their statements. Many have been fired, runined economically and harassed by the government for decades because they dared criticize the American race totem, black supremacy.
    Currently the mayor of Las Vegas has said: "Obama is not welcome here."
    Local black supremacists are demanding that he humiliate himself with an apology.
    So far he has refused. There was no counter demand that local black racists and Obama both apologize for a litany of crimes. Therefore, I think this white mayor will also cave and apologize while groveling.
    I have noticed that women advocate apology far more than men. It is a feminine trait that is mindless and only acts as cover for those in fault. Its done in the feminine conception of peace, i.e, verbal submission.
    I believe that in a case where, a tyrannical parasitical minority can not only milk the majority for financial support but also enjoy racial perks and powers to intimidate, it is stupid to apologize. Resistance is the answer.
    Your manhood begins when you stand up for what you believe is right, when you form collectives within your tribe for self-defense, and when you do not back down before racist bullies.

    No, it's no sign of weakness. It's a social necessity to make things work between people.
    Of course I'm talking about genuine apology for when you do something wrong to someone yourself, not politically correct apologies which are absurd, like apologizing for what your great-great-great-great grandfather did or even people who weren't related to you.
    I apologize if I cross the line and realize it. I do it because I want to show the other person I feel responsible and regretful for what I did.
    However the most important thing is not the apology itself, that's a formality. The most important thing is not to repeat the same mistake, at least intentionally, because then your apology becomes worthless.

    you guys certainly have an interesting outlook on this sort of thing.

    It is important

    To apologize is absolutely necessary. Some excuse themselves all the time, it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that this person has low self-esteem, or use the excuse the wrong way. Then it is your duty to tell this person about it, and help the person to improve. Never let this go unnoticed, you have to take care of people.

    People who do not apologize for the wrong they have done, they are cowards. And I will never accept such behavior, not my brothers or anyone who has good moral standards.

    I often meet people who look down on the ground, no real Viking looks down into the ground. Keep your chin high, be proud.
