The daughter of American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. says economic injustice must be addressed as part of the reconciliation process with Canada’s First Nations. Bernice King said a history of pain and abuse can’t be erased with an apology, and money for programs won’t undo the suffering that can take generations to overcome. "We still suffer in America, as an African-American community," she told reporters on Saturday, referring to the lingering effects of slavery and oppression. King, 50, said her maternal great-grandmother was part Cherokee and there is Indian ancestry on her father’s side as well.
