College students WHY: College students are on their own for the first time and must determine their own values, morals, and ethics individually without the influence of their parents and family. Reminder: Student projects cannot use College students as their audience.
Today we are all about being equal and skin color and ethnicity should NOT matter, yet it does. Trayvon Martin shooting Feb.2012 Family doesn’t want it described as a “race” killing”, but rather a “hate” crime/killing it has racial overtones.” Zimmerman found not guilty
Michael Dunn, 45, allegedly shot and killed Davis after a verbal altercation over loud music playing from the SUV that Davis and three of his friends were sitting in at a Jacksonville gas station, according to police.
Hate is a strong and fierce reaction that is a learned response. "To hate is to refuse to accept another person as a human being, to diminish him, to limit your own horizon by narrowing his, to look at him - and also at yourself - not as a subject of pride but as an object of disdain and of fear..." - Excerpt from The Oslo Declaration The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue to Hope Documentary The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue to Hope Documentary
Because someone looks different than another, it causes fear and irrational behavior leading to hate. Because one does not understand another culture it causes another to seek out and destroy that culture and put his/hers in place because of hate.
Elie Weisel says it best “Hate knows no frontiers, neither racial nor ethnic. Hate is contagious. Wearing different masks, it can be found among all religions and social communities.”
Many things are said and done in the name of religion; any religion it does not matter if one is Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Muslim. Religion has caused hate to grow within people for centuries. From the Crusades, Holocaust, September 11,2001
An 88-year-old white supremacist known for his hatred of Jews and African Americans shot and killed a security guard this week (June 10) at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. June 12, 2009 (PBS.ORG).PBS.ORG The incident left hundreds questioning why an elderly man would go into a museum and begin shooting; especially with children present. The answer: Hate. He thought “all Jews were evil” (Syeed & Espo). Allowing his resentment to fester until he committed the ultimate act, murder.
Hate leads to crime, which gives police the name: hate crime. October 7, 1998 would become one of the most notorious anti-gay hate crimes in America Results in the passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, a federal law against bias crimes directed at lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered people.
Two men, Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson, abducted Matt and drove him to a remote area east of Laramie, Wyoming. He was beaten and left to die in the cold of the night. 18 hours later, he was found by a bicyclist who initially mistook him for a scarecrow. Matt died on October 12 at 12:53 a.m.
“The FBI is implementing changes to collect additional data for crimes motivated by a bias against a particular gender or gender identity, as well as for hate crimes committed by or directed against juveniles”(Hate). Society is falling apart because hate crimes are now being committed by younger people. FBI Press Release for 2012 link FBI Press Release for 2012 link
Of the 6,008 known offenders, 58.6 percent were white and 18.4 percent were black. For 12.0 percent, the race was unknown, and the remaining known offenders were of other races.
The ironic statement contradicts what many believe to be false; hate should be the opposite of love; the antithesis of what is good in the world. But hate must start somewhere.
LEYDEN: Well, you know, my father - the first time I ever felt real affection, real love, kind of like a joy from my dad was when I severely injured my cousin in a fight that we had had. My father came over and gave me a big hug, kissed me on the forehead and told me he loved me….So I started to equate violence with love.
“Anyone who hates an individual is almost always capable of succumbing to group hatred or even of spreading it,” Havel warned. “I would even say that group hatred be it religious, ideological or doctrinal, social, national or any other kind is a kind of funnel that ultimately draws into itself everyone disposed toward hatred.” (Havel) One cannot avoid hate, but one can certainly avoid being hateful.
