Hate is an ugly thing. Something that we as people wish to get rid of; however, we do nothing. As people, we have our own responsibilities to humans to show kindness to others and to treat others how we want to be treated. That line I heard a lot while growing up. I mostly heard them because of teachers telling us to behave and treat each other with respect. When I was younger I thought it was stupid that there was no need for that. However, now that I think about it that line “ Treat others how you want to be treated “ is a good line. This teaches children not to have hate in them and to have love.

 

This saying teaches kids that we are all equal and that none of us are different even though we all have our own religions, ethnicities, and genders. In 2017, there were over 6,000 different hate crimes in America . A hate crime is threats, harassment, or physical harm and is motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability.

The known offenders for hate crimes in 2017 had the following ethnic breakdown: 50.7% were white 21.3% were black 19.1% their races were unknown. It is every races fault not just white people we need to come to an understanding with each other communicate with one another and understand one another. We need to accept them as a person just because they are different doesn’t mean they are a bad person. We also need to understand as country that just because a group of people who are the same race commit a crime it does not mean that every single one them has. Don’t judge the reason why we are a proud country because we have so much diversity, and that we are all different everyone of us is different however we all have some things in common. We all have love ones, we all want the best for our loved ones, we all want to see our loved ones happy, and we are all human.
