Quote – “The Difference Between Racism and Hatred” – 9/6/2020

“If to be personal means to have once trusted, then to hate means to have had that trust betrayed. Though, it is only ever when the attachment was personal, that love becomes hate. Love turns to hatred, only when trust is betrayed of a personal closeness. To be racist must then mean to fear all those who pertain of such familiar likeness to the one who dealt the betrayal. If that of people who are white speak to those who are black, as betrayers, then it is those who are black who become racist. For those who are never close to the betrayer, only fear what may transpire, again. Hatred cannot pertain to racism, if personal connection is never again a factor.”
