Hatred, bigotry, and the American way
Hatred between groups of people is a defense mechanism. If you didn't defend your family, or your tribe, they would probably be attacked by another tribe, and die. Learning to recognize the subtle differences between *your people* and *them* started at any early age. Hating people who are different from you isn't something that you are born with, it is something that must be carefully taught. It is something that the human race has been trying to grow out of for thousands of years. Attempts to break this cycle of hatred are as old as civilization. And you would think that people like me would give up, but we won't.
