Comments: Wachovia Bank forced to apologize for historical ties to slavery

I can understand why a business would apology to anyone for anything, simply because the odds are they may get more business.

Why would the citizens of a local a government allow it to be necessary, a legal requirement, for any business wanting to do business within their city, to first have to publicly disclose any ties to slavery prior to the Civil War?

The only reason I can see, is for future use in a lawsuit - I think you are right, the pro-reparations groups are compiling a list.
