    as members of the human family we know hatred when we see it, it's like pornography...you recognize it when you see it.

    My comment was only meant as an answer to the seeming outrage that this community has been experiencing hysteria over these many days.

      What you see as hatred might not necessarily be what I see as hatred. Sure, there are some things that are blatant, that any decent person would see as fundamental hatred...racist slurs, homophobia, and other bigotry.

      It starts to get less clear when people get passionate about issue-specific things.

      Calling Obama a sell-out, for example, doesn't automatically translate into hatred for the man. It's assessing his actions as perceived by the individual with a grievance. Perhaps it's hyperbolic, and perhaps other commentary surrounding the "sell-out" accusation might indicate something deeper, but it's a case by case thing, as far as I'm concerned.

      And as far as the porno thing, one wo/man's porno is another wo/man's nightly news. ;)




      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
