Mama why do they hate us?

“Mama why do they hate us?” This is a question a young child asks as she learns about racism.

Palestinian children are asking this question – when they see people they know, friends and family members killed by faceless men. The Israelis are in a killing frenzy right now which is fueled by hate and religion. Try being a daughter of a Jew and a Palestinian – and try to leave the country without being sexually harassed by the racist “security”.

Then not to be outdone in Missouri another family mourns the senseless death of their child by cop. This killing was also about racism. The racists have come out to play and make us all aware that racism is alive and still evil. It takes a lot of energy to hate a whole group of human beings based on a few genes.

Hate is taught to children. Racism can be unlearned.
