Duía Khalil Aswad: if I believed in spirits I would apologise to yours. I would apologise on behalf of my inherently vile sex, even though I had nothing to do with the brutal ending of your innocent life at the hands, feet and hurled rocks of those who did. Why do I feel the desire to do this when I feel that it is absurd, irrational and unfair to apologise for slavery? I donít really know. Perhaps because I do, at least in part, blame maleness itself for what was done to you. And I am guilty of being male.
