Mark Wahlberg, aka “Marky Mark” aka the actor who has won acclaim for starring roles in award-winning films such as “The Fighter” and “The Departed” has recently asked for a pardon for his previous offenses.
So do we forgive and forget?
Massachusetts will ultimately decide on the criminal pardon to be decided by Governor Deval Patrick.
But you can also decide.
Both the Vietnamese men assaulted officially recorded accounts. One is now partially blind. The racial slurs recorded in his testimony were horrific.
“a Vietnam f****** shit,”
“You don’t have to let him identify me, I’ll tell you now that’s the mother-f******whose head I split open.”
“Gooks” and “slant-eyed gooks.”
“Kill the n*****, kill the n*****”
Massachusetts will decide if it will forgive.
Mark Wahlberg says he takes responsibility for his racist, violent actions and then asks for a pardon, erasing it from his record?
Yes, perhaps there is a reason to officially remove it from your record. (Opening a chain of restaurants maybe?)
Some things can’t be erased, pardon or no pardon.
Some things you do, maybe you should always have to remember. (end)
