The state General Assembly took the first step Wednesday toward expressing "profound regret" for slavery. Among those voting for the measure was Del. Frank D. Hargrove, who angered black leaders across the United States two weeks ago by saying blacks "should get over" slavery. Hargrove said he could support the resolution because it shows regret "without apologizing for anything."
