Just when you thought we were finished with Jewish/African-American issues…

The House of Representatives voted yesterday to pass a resolution issuing a formal apology to African-Americans for slavery and Jim Crow segregation, and the sponsor of the bill? None other than the Jewish Democratic congressman from a mostly black constituency in Memphis, Steve Cohen.

There’s no need to go too far into this, so let’s just interactively pat Rep. Cohen on the back.
