National Geographic apologises for racist


"In a full-issue article on Australia that ran in 1916, Aboriginal Australians were called 'savages' who 'rank lowest in intelligence of all human beings'.

>rank lowest in intelligence of all human beings

Happens to be factually correct.

This whole apologising for the sins of the fathers is ridiculous.

National Geographic Society still exists. It is the entity that committed the acts of racism. It is not its "father" that did the things.

Likewise with the US. The US committed genocide against natives, and enslaved blacks. Not some "father". The US as an entity is still around.
