White people: Slavery? Come on are you still stuck on that? It's time to move on that was yearsssssss ago no one cares anymore
In all fairness, slaves were not limited to white owners. Blacks had slaves, Asians had slaves, Arabs/Muslims had slaves for a loooong time, everyone had slaves. It was a booming industry. Blacks sold blacks to whites, Arabs, Asians, Europeans, other Africans, anyone who had the money, they didn't care. They sold them. Parents even sold their own children to be slaves.
It was brutal, yes, but blaming the whites entirely for it gets away from the whole picture. If everyone was doing it, it's irresponsible to single out just one people for the blame that is worthy of all people.
When the axe came into the Forest, the trees said “The handle is one of us.”
If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.
― His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso (via panatmansam
All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry—all forms of fear—are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
