It's funny that just this afternoon a Republican I know sent me an article on how we have a handle on hate crimes between blacks/whites in this country, and then this appears on CNN.com!! One, I don't believe we have a handle on much at all anymore, and I truly don't think when it comes to minorities, we have ANY control over bullying and hate crimes.

You are right Kactus! It could be our next door neighbor, it could be one of our childrens friends parents! We just do know who they are and we have no control over the situation!
So much bulling stars in school! Our oldest daughter who is 38, works in the Aerospace Industry as a contract administrator. Last week a man that works for her wanted to talk about the elections, that is a no no! When he asked her who she voted for she told him it was none of his business. He bent down to where she was sitting and looked her in the eyes and said, you voted for Obama, didn't you? She said that was none of his business! He whipped around and called her a Communist! She said she was just terrified! She told him to get out of her office and she would deal with him later! She still has not decided what to do with him! She said, mom I was terrified! His eyes were awful! Filled with hate! Kactus, it's everywhere!

At age 17, this young man learned hate from somewhere...at home, the Rush Limbaughs, online blogs, friends, at school and from some of the most unlikely places - from upstanding citizens, politicians and the community he lives in. I have seen racial comments in threads at Care2 that are made consciously. The worst comments made are those people who aren't even aware they are racist and spreading hatred.

This is a disease. It hurts society, including the hater.

The opposite of hate is love.

We must all embrace love so it rubs off on our children and ourselves. Love conquers all.
