Good article.

I think it's a bit dangerous to speculate or buy into the narratives of why people hate. If someone tells you why they hate some benign group of people, they're most likely not telling the truth. Most people don't understand their motives or why the feel the way they do - they rationalize after the fact to justify the behaviour. If you got down to the root of someone's hatred you'd probably just find a shitton of fear and maybe some traumatic (likely unrelated) past experience that reinforces the fear/hatred.
