Hatred Tends to Come in ‘Twos’ . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

Hatred tends to come in ‘twos’ … two cultures, nationalities, and religions have a quarrel with each other. One accuses the other of terrorist activities or hate crimes. Mass media rouse public sympathy on the topic. Then follow news reports on the same side of the fence.

This convinces the public that there is a culture, nationality, or religion that is to blame for the enmity of the offended party, which poses as the ‘victim’ in the situation. Public perception of the pariah and the victim in two cultures, nationalities, or religions that have twined in hatred, can endure for decades.

The public perception that one party in a warring duo is to blame or at fault is, I feel, not conducive of a peaceful denouement. A balanced job of news reporting regarding paired acts of hatred would go a long way toward effecting that accord.

I ask that the news media take into account the greater good of the American people, and offer us a balanced picture of such ongoing animosities as the Jewish – Islamic conflict in the Middle East and here in the United States; the homed – unhomed conflicts arising in the cities of the United States; the diverse stances of employed – employer; and the rights of the people of the United States in the face of the power of corporations and drug cartels.

If news media will go the mile in putting before the American public both sides of the issue, then we, the People, can, through a groundswell of informed opinion, in town hall meetings and neighborhood councils, make a difference in public policy, first at the level of our communities, and from those grassroots beginnings, on up through the layers of government, to the architecture of the laws passed at a national level.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
