My Message to Racist Hate Groups

Hello racist,  I know my blue eyes and Scottish last name might cause you to easily overlook me, but full disclosure, I am a Jew. A very proud Jew at that. I represent a demographic you typically hate, along with virtually any other ethnic identity that does not fit your particular radical, racial extremist mentality. In light of that, I still want to thank you. See, due to your propensity to spew hate or condone violence, you have empowered me. For example, for the first time in my life, last year I started wearing a yarmulke all the time out in public.  My decision was founded on a desire to combat your hate by giving others a chance to interact with someone in a positive way that they might not ever have before. To realize that Jews come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. So don't allow yourself to fall for stereotypes so quickly.  Guess what happened? Suddenly, I began to gain so much more value for life because I was able to connect with so many more diverse groups of people. Now, since you have helped me, I feel it is only fair to give back to you. There is something important you need to know. History is not and will not repeat itself and your time for enjoying the power of hate has come and gone. See, for so many of us, after years of persecution, attempted ethnic genocide, oppression, and enslavement we discovered an immense power. That is the power of love and togetherness. It is the strength of each other. See we possess a great power that you are incapable of having. Whites can support Blacks; Jews can defend Muslims, etc. Ultimately, we can be a massive and powerful force because we can support each other. Unfortunately, your hate and feelings of ethnic superiority prevent you from experiencing this strength and happiness.  We can bond together, while you cannot even be on the same page with other hate groups that are unlike you. Make no mistake you've not suddenly gained any real power. Sure, maybe you've enjoyed hearing an uptick in hateful rhetoric on social media or in the news. However, you see that's the thing, we who choose love. Therefore we have a voice in the good times and in the bad. We don't need anything or anyone to justify our existence. You have no real control because you cannot even control your own emotions. Whereas we possess the ability to stand with each other stoically.  We are so powerful that I honestly don't hate you! In fact, I feel sorry for you and pray for your mindset to change. To spread hate, you must spread lies, propaganda, and fear. However, to sell love we all have to do absolutely nothing, except have the desire to be happy. To gain support for your ideology, you have to spread lies and fear.  "Join us because: "All Muslims want to kill Americans," "All blacks are criminals that need to be put in their place!", "The Jews control all of your money and make you miserable!", "All whites are racist, band together or be wiped out!" You do this because you want to fragment us and make us internalize and hide within our ethnic groups. You want us to be as closed minded towards others as you are. The vehicles you use to get us there are hate and fear. However, it's too late. We've already seen the beauty and power of togetherness. There is no going back. Remember, the loudest dog in the room is the weakest dog in the room. Your bark may be loud right now. But remember you're picking a fight with a much larger and more powerful dog, and this is a dogfight that you will not win. In closing, sure maybe you'll read this and fill my inbox with hate speak. But remember, ultimately that shows how weak you are and it is you that are the ones who are scared. You offer me hate. I offer you a hug. Oh and one last word for the wise. Do not think that your trepidatious, malevolent forked tongue can incite violence against innocents with impunity. There will come a day when you will have to answer for the wickedness you condone. 

There will come a day when you will have to answer the indignations you have caused. By fiery wrath that will consume you, before delivering you into the hands of that which is far more wicked than you can imagine. A thirst of wickedness that can only be quenched by the skillful art of your destruction. Your sinfulness will merely be fuel for it's fire... Personally, I'd take the hug if I were you...
