When it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

"The ego says, ‘I shouldn’t have to suffer,’ and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it."

i honestly don’t understand why white people try to determine what is or isn’t supposed to be offensive to black people or any person of color for that matter like why don’t you keep your unsolicited pasty ass opinion to yourself and stay the fuck in your lane

West African Teen Taunted With Chants of ‘Ebola’ at High School Soccer Game

ourafrica:

One Pennsylvania teen, who is originally from Guinea, recently had to endure his high school rival’s soccer team chanting “Ebola” at him during a match, WPVI reports.

According to the station, Ibrahim Toumkara, a Nazareth Area High School student and soccer player, got into a fight last week after he heard players from rival Northampton High School taunting him about the deadly virus, which has killed more than 4,000 people across West Africa, including in his home country.

"Being from western Africa and having family in that area, he didn’t take too kindly to those remarks and went after one of the players on the Northampton team," the boy’s coach, Edward Bachert, explained. Bachert is also Ibrahim’s legal guardian, as well as a police chief for Lehigh County. 

The 16-year-old moved away from Guinea three years ago, the station notes.

"There were tears coming down his eyes. He was visibly shaken by this, that it got to that level on the field," Bachert added.

Ibrahim’s parents are still in West Africa, and according to WPVI, he is constantly worrying for them.

After the tasteless incident, both Northampton’s head soccer coach and its assistant coach resigned. Some of the student athletes are also expected to face disciplinary action, according to the station.

"This is part of the educational process to make sure that students are understanding sportsmanship and what’s happening out there in the world," Northampton Area Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik said.

Since when is a deadly virus funny? When will African lives not be nothing but a comedic piece to westerners?
