    Hi all,

    We're having a fairly lively discussion here and hope to get some additional input. The question is this: Is it possible that there are people out there who've examined humanity and freely come to an educated choice to hate or discriminate; and, if so could they explain why they reached that decision?

    Thanks,
    C

    You have one post and you're referring to yourself in the plural?

    It sounds like you don't think much of "hate" or "discrimination" and likely believe that anyone who dislikes a racial or ethnic group in general must be a bad, bad person. You're certainly not alone in SPEAKING that belief, but the hard truth is that racial and ethnic groups regard each other suspiciously for pretty sound evolutionary reasons. That, and getting robbed by the first 80 percent of blacks you encounter is probably a rational reason to assume the next one might, as well. Even Jesse Jackson once said he was relieved to look over his shoulder at night and see a white person.
