Fake Apologies

Today I would like to talk a bit about Apologies.  Not just any apologies, fake ones.  I mean those that are so fake that they are basically forced.  You know the ones I'm talking about, some public figure says something politically incorrect and the next day they are holding some press conference to apologize.

Does anyone actually believe these apologies?  What exactly is the use of them?  Ok, I can understand that sometimes we get mad and we say things we don't really mean.  I myself have done it.  But I would say the majority of the time when I see some public figure apologizing for what he/she said it always sounds extremely fake and scripted.  You can just tell it is something the Public Relations office gave them.

Lets not forget about how fake these apologies make people look also.  Look if you have an opinion about something that is not politically correct and you let it out, be proud of it don't back out.  You have every right to  have your own opinions.  I for example let it be known that I have a great deal of respect for people like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.  Most people don't like that comment but tough.

Even if you are a Racist, be proud of racism.  Personally I think you are an idiot if you are a racist but I'd rather deal with a racist who is comfortable with his/her racism than someone who keeps trying to hide it.  Obviously being a public figure and being racist doesn't make for very good business, but if you do happen to let it be known that you are a racist by mistake, then don't be going and apologizing the next day.
