Watching Tyra today- which I never do, but there was this family that OMG ... that's another topic- I saw a black man who was a racist, hated African Americans and wanted to be white. Being Jewish I've met Anti-Semitic Jews, believe it or not. I've seen women putting down women. Do people really asume that self-hate is somewhat more acceptable? Personally, I think it's much worse, because it's giving permission to others to hate that group you belong to.
Why do people end up hating their own selves this way? I don't get it. I think promoting any kind of hate is horrible, but encouraging hate at your own people? That's unforgivable, IMO.

I think it starts the way a lot of self hatred starts because you feel that something is "wrong" with you. Some people have that "the grass is greener on the other side" type feeling about themselves.

I know a girl who would pretty much give anything to be black. Her explanation is that she just identifies more with "black culture."
