Why Do People Want To Spread Hate?
I have never understood why people want to hate other people because they may be different, from another part of the world, have different beliefs, the color of their skin, and the list goes on.
Essentially, every person, group, race, nationality, or whatever label you want to put on them, as individuals all share similar needs. The needs that are most common are to make some sort of living to be able to take care of their family, have a home, and have the necessary essentials for survival. If every person on the planet shares those basic needs, how is there room for hate?
No matter what group you fall in, everyone in that group is different so even if everyone is the same color, and race and shares the same beliefs, there will still be differences in overall ideas and ways to get things done but that is where the communication begins. Finding common grounds for ideas and agreeing on how to function as a group is and should be the same for those same groups functioning with other groups of society.
Maybe it's the fear of the unknown, I just don't know. What I do know is hate is taught so that might be a good place to start working backward from there.
Flint Area Man Travels to West Michigan To Drop Off Anti-Semitic Flyers
The picture above is the van of a 43-year-old man from Mt. Morris, which is just north of Flint, who drove to West Michigan neighborhoods to deliver anti-semitic flyers.
According to WOOD, the flyers were dropped off Sunday in driveways of neighborhoods in Caledonia and Wyoming. The flyers contained disturbing content that blamed Jewish people for the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and the war in Ukraine. The flyers didn't make direct threats but attempted to spread conspiracy lies and promoted a website filled with antisemitic banter.
Police know who the man is but the Kent County Prosecutor is trying to figure out what they can do since a direct threat was not being made so there is no timetable on if charges will be filed or not. Currently, the man who distributed the flyers is not cooperating with authorities. You can learn more details with this video link.
