Response to Mortos (Original post)

33. We are first (as children) mostly the culmination of our relative's pasts.......

...so when young people lash-out like this, they do so to in almost a reflexive effort to protect the sanctity of the lessons and stories (mostly stereotypes & prejudices) of those who first instilled that hate in them. Just as their parent's parents instilled that hate in them. And so on and so on, ad infinitum. They do so not because they know that those relatives were right in their hatreds and prejudice that they passed onto to them, but rather because they love those fickle, prejudiced people who raised them. Warts and all.

- It doesn't excuse them nor their behavior. But it helps us all to understand from whence it comes......
