Hate IS serious. Hatred and intolerance of others leads to the mass murders in Africa and led to the Holocaust. Jews have faced the LARGEST holocaust and MOST RECENT holocaust. In fact, survivors of the Nazis are still alive today, while Africans enslaved in the US have long since passed on. The holocaust of the Jews happened less than a lifetime ago, and we are seeing a similar rise in anti-Semitism throughout Europe. You say it is harmless to hate, but that is how the Nazis got their power and murdered millions of people while the world stood by. Never again.
