"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?"

I obviously reject the loaded reference to "minor" offense, and I said nothing about "completely out of the blue."

Anyway, I take it as self-evident that an organization that holds itself out as a font of enlightened wisdom should be deeply embarrassed and shameful [n.1] by its having promulgated a most unenlightened policy - a rule that made it a terminating offense for an asian to marry a white.

So far from being "pointless," I don't even see how the basic, imperative decency of including a small, inconspicuous apology somewhere on the website is even arguable. Maybe we just have different standards of enlightened behavior.

1. I would have a hard time characterizing the perpetuation and institutionalization of anti-miscegenetic views as anything other than shameful.
