Why Do We Hate?

We hate because we are taught to hate. We hate because we are ignorant. We are the product of ignorant people who have been taught an ignorant thing..

There is no gene for racism. There is no gene for bigotry. You’re not born a bigot, you have to learn to be a bigot. Anything you learn, you can unlearn. It’s time to unlearn our bigotry.

I’m an educator. And it’s my business as an educator to lead people out of ignorance – the ignorance of thinking you’re better or worse than someone else because of the amount of pigment in your skin.

-Jane Elliot | Educator, Diversity Expert
