Expect To Be Hated

You are not hated for your skin color.
Your skin color, whether red, white, black, brown, or yellow, is one of your most beautiful features.
It is your behavior that brings hate.
It's your
Ignorance
and
Arrogance.
Your
Lawlessness
and
Insobriety.
It's your
Sloth,
Envy,
Greed,
and your own
Hatred.
That's why you are hated.
It's easier to look in the mirror and ignore your flaws. You see your own skin color and blame your problems on that. It's easier to blame racists than change the real reason you are hated.
If you are good, that goodness will defeat hatred.
But if you are evil,
Expect to be hated.
