    Hatred must be a learned trait...It is not a natural emotion... only a defensive reaction against the world at large. (Report) Reply

    A very important message here Mihaela. Children are born as blank canvasses. Often the thoughts put into their heads by those responsible for them is little more than child abuse. You are stating a classic example here, racism, but there are many more. An old Jesuit motto............... Give me the child until the age of seven, and I will show you the man. (Report) Reply
