Have you seen this video by the Anti-Defamation League?
The thought of a world without hate is utopic and beautiful, but the video is also a chilling reminder of how monstrous hate can be when it consumes a person or group of people.
But can humans change?
Hate is expressing in widespread violence, fear, and revenge. However, the roots of hate are in human nature, the mass media, culture, politics, and the economy. –Why We Hate, Jack Levin
To eliminate hate we need to understand it. Ignorance seems to be the catalyst for many undesired human emotions. When we are educated completely on a subject we tend to be less afraid, more understanding to alternative ideas, and embrace our knowledge without a negative reaction to the topic in question.
We can all improve on this.
