For my part, if I were head of an organization that implemented an anti-miscegenation policy in the '30s, I would make sure that my website had a full accounting of the attendant times and circumstances, and that it contained a full and unqualified expression of culpability and regret. After all, that would be the "enlightened" thing to do, wouldn't it?

No, it would be a rather pointless thing to do. Nevertheless I look forward to seeing the website where you make a public admission and statement about anything you may regret doing in the past.

We are talking about one fairly minor incident which happened over 60 years ago. I can see no reason why SRF should comment upon it publicly now. It SRF were to make a statement about this then they would be expected to comment upon virtually every other incident in the organisation's history.

If they were to produce a book on the history of SRF, then this incident probably should be mentioned, along with an explanation. However I can see no reason to exaggerate the importance of this incident by making a statement about it now.

You seem to be saying that SRF should make a public statement, completely out of the blue, concerning one minor incident in its history. Why?
