    Question Where Does Hate Come From?

    Does hate come from ignorance or are people just born to hate? What do you hate and what made you feel hatred? Is this a normal feeling or is this something more deep rooted in each of us?

    Re: Where Does Hate Come From?

    Hate is bred from many things. Ignorance is passed on from generation to generation. Its taught, its learned.
    A childs self esteem is destroyed because a parent cannot rid themselves of their demons.
    An unwillingness or inability to break the cycle.
    People that have been hurt beyond repair.
    Weak character.
    Low IQ.
    A person that cant take responsibility for their own actions.
    Degenerates.
    The list is endless.

    It comes initially from fear-of the unknown of someone or something that is different from you and you know nothing about. Ignorance feeds it up in to prejudice at which point it is no longer rational.

    Nomad got most of it already. I'd say that they do group on two categories, though:

    1. People have been taught to hate. I've personally seen this many, many times. I remember one sawed-off little boy that came to our school on the '90s. He told our African American teacher to "swim back to Africa." He called every other race in the school racial names, and by the end of the first day we had kids coming into the office in groups asking if they could kill him. So we called for a P/T conference. When the parents showed up, the dad had a Nazi swastika tattooed on his forehead. Mystery solved and a powerful lesson that hate is a learned behavior.

    2. People who have learned to hate through experiences. Let's face it. Life beats people up. Run-ins with other races and bad experiences with them leads people to stereotype. Yes, it's wrong, and yes it has been and will be going on for all time.

    Oh Saint that is awful your first example.... geeze that is a horrible start for that little boy.

    I know a kid who is a member of a pro white society here in town... no not the kkk he is a father of 2 and would never ever ever teach his girls anything like that. I spose his girls are fortunate as well that they are around many positive people too.

    Re: Where Does Hate Come From?

    Hate can also come from being on the receiving end of somebody's vile, evil actions against your family. That sort of hatred is very difficult to keep under control, and try to turn it to pity. I know this from my own recent RL experience.

    No I'm not talking about gangs mooching about, or idiots smashing our car windows. I am talking about something that is far more personal, and far more evil.

    I think most people would use "feeling" for something temporary and changeable over time. Hatred is rather more permanent.

    I hate tapioca pudding.

    I learned to hate tapioca pudding at an early age. I suspect I could overcome the reaction if I set my mind to it and practised a lot but to be honest I don't want to. I long ago reached the point where my loathing of tapioca pudding was an entirely natural reaction to its existence. That's not a feeling, that's pure untrammelled hatred.
