When are we gonna just go ahead and acknowledge that hate is as American as apple pie?!?
It seems to me that most of America hates somebody. Maybe that's why violence is so prevalent in our society?!?
There are perfectly good reasons to hate people. But I refuse to hate anyone based on their race, gender, religious preferences or sexual orientation. How does one hate someone they've never actually met before?!? What about the tens of milions of people that hate other people simply because they don't like who they choose to love?!? What kind of insanity is that?!? Why would someone care what goes on in someone else's home?!? Isn't being an American supposed to be about choice?!?
I know that there are millions of Americans out there that hate me and people that look like me simply because of my permanent suntan. Many others out there that look like me, hate millions of other Americans simply because they don't look like them. Oh and this isn't just a black and white issue, it's everyone else as well. Every race in this country is just as guilty as the next.
There are millions of people in this country that despise other Americans because they don't worship the same God or share the same religious beliefs. They call themselves good Christians or whatever religion they worship, yet their hearts are filled with hate.
If you promise not to hate me, I'd promise not to hate you. However, if you chose to hate me, I still wouldn't hate you. Hate takes too much effort; and I for one am not interested in making that effort.
What I do know is that someone is teaching their children to hate other people. If that weren't so, then there wouldn't be so much hate here in the first place.
