I Hate

I hate you cause you're white,
I hate you cause you're black.
I hate you out of spite,
My hate takes you aback.

I hate you cause you're straight,
I hate you cause you're gay.
I'll hate till I'm irate,
My hate is here to stay.

I hate you cause you're male,
I hate you cause you're female.
All these reasons I hate,
For I will discriminate.

I'm not the only person who hates,
By race, sexuality or gender.
I'm not the only one who discriminates,
I'm not the only offender.
