“Of all forms of slavery there is none that is so harmful and degrading as that form of slavery which tempts one human being to hate another by reason of his race or color. One man cannot hold another man down in the ditch without remaining down in the ditch with him.”
“In any country, regardless of what its laws say, wherever people act upon the idea that the disadvantage of one man is the good of another, there slavery exists. Wherever, in any country the whole people feel that the happiness of all is dependent upon the happiness of the weakest, there freedom exists.”
It is an interesting concept, hatred enslaves the hater. Hatred and scapegoating lay the foundation of slavery. And Booker T. Washington knew well the evil of slavery, far better than the modern race activist, who views hatred of white men as a virtue and gleefully imagines their enemies cast out from society into the outer darkness. The typical racial activists shackle themselves to a cause that brings only spiritual slavery while calling for reparations for slavery.
