Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Monday that he sent a "formal letter" to the king of Spain asking him to apologize for Spain's conquest of Mexico.
The answer he got back was a definitive no.
From the Pacific Standard:
In a video released on social media on Monday, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexico's president, stood next to his wife in front of the ruins of a Mayan pyramid in Tabasco, one of the country's southernmost states. Speaking to the camera, AMLO (as he is known in Mexico) explained that he and his wife had come to Centla—the Maya city whose ruins they stood among—to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the the battle the Chontal Maya fought against the forces of Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés.Is Mexico planning on apologizing to the victims of the Aztecs?
They built giant monuments to their conquests using the skulls of thousands of their victims.
If we're all supposed to apologize for our ancestors' past wrongdoings, that might be a good place to start.
