Why I think hatred has no place in this world although it does exist

R.F. II On: Hatred

Do you have any reason or any thoughts on why we hate? Some of us hate for hate's sake. Some of us hate because we feel as though we were done wrong. And I don't just mean black and white. I mean black and Asian American, black and Guatemalan, black and whoever, white and whoever, Asian and whoever, whoever and whoever hatred shouldn't exist in this world. When you think of where this world came from, god and his son hated no one. They loved everyone. And I think we should also. If we were created in his image, I think that's mentally as well as physically. He didn't hate anybody. He made provisions so that things that needed to be taken care of could be and because people weren't handling their business correctly they blamed him. But nowadays people just hate for no reason. Take for example, that brother in Texas being dragged down the street behind a truck no one reserves the right to treat another person like that. There people over in the Middle East right now, killing each other over territory, over property. Land something that was here before they got here and will be here when they're gone.

I guess my whole point is, there's no reason real or otherwise to hate. It's not a necessity, nor does it enhance the quality of life. What good thing has hatred ever done for anyone? Hatred kept us slaves for way too many years. Hatred has kept white people out of jobs because they've hated enough to push our issues up to the forefront. It has also destroyed entire nations. Trust me, America is supposed to be a melting pot, it's not a melting pot, it's a pot on fire with no water to help sustain it. Basically, I think hatred just shouldn't exist. And I can't exist or function where there's hatred. I don't want my children to know that hatred ever existed. But I’m sure that someone going to tell them, or maybe even show them for that matter. I'm panicking over what to tell them the first time somebody calls one of them a “nigger”. The best I can do is to give them Webster’s definition of the word and hope it hurts a little less. I know I won't be able to explain away hatred, nor will his mother or his grandparents for that matter. Nobody will be able to explain it away. But I will do my best to prepare them for it and protect them from it as long as I can.
