-----------
1) Because those people that were the direct victims of slavery have been dead for several generations.

2) Because the price has already been paid, in blood. During the American Civil War, not every Union soldier was fighting to free the slaves. But for every Confederate that contributed to the enslavement of African-Americans, there was a Union soldier or abolitionist that fought for their freedom - and many of these heroes paid the ultimate price.
