difference

Now just remember folks I am not a god or celestial being. I am just a human like you. I hurt and bleed like you. I love and dislike akin to you. I even fart and poo like you. In most ways I am like you.
Of course we are different too. I might have less hair on my head than you, a different tint to my eyes than you. My girth maybe wider than yours, my breasts bigger than most, i may be taller, or heavier. My skin may be lighter or darker. I might have different beliefs or values.
But essentially I am a human being as I am guessing are you. I feel in the same way you do. My blood is the same colour as yours. I breath the same air and we all have to eat and drink.
So why do some truly believe they are better than others? That someone is less than them because of a difference.
In what reality does it make any sense to hate someone because although they are human they differ from you?
Hate is learnt, we are not born seeing those differences as bad.
Am I worthless because I have less money than you?
Are you valueless because you drive an older car?
Does the make or style of your trainers define your life?
Explain your hate to me?
Yes there are folk I dislike immensely but I actually in reality hate no one. I dislike due to the way they are with me or treat others. I may even be too alike to them and see my own failings mirrored in their behaviours.
I dont hate them because they were not born in the same house, street, town, or country as me.
I do not hate because they go to church, mosque or temple. I do not hate because they have to live on the streets or in a mansion.
I do not despise someone without knowing them as an individual.
I hate violence but have occasionally violent thoughts.
I hate confrontation but stand by my values
I hate aggression but am stubborn
I have failings as you do. We all would like to be perfect but we are not. We can never be. If we lived in a world of clones society would ever have the capacity to progress.
So explain to me why you hate those you do not know?
Is it hate? Or is it just fear?

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
