Jealousy fuels hatred

Dear Sir,

Various fabricated comments and beliefs of hatred are expressed, but the primary reason groups of people and some organisations are hated is jealousy by others. The jealousy can be related to the successes of the targeted people or organisations.

The New England Patriots football team were hated by fans beyond New England because of their successful seasons. The New York Yankees baseball team have been hated by fans of other baseball teams.

Successful people are hated by those who are less successful. Various races, ethnicities and religions in the world are targeted with hatred, some because of their high success rates in fields of endeavour. In the United States, Asian and Indian-Americans have experienced hateful acts and speech by jealous people. Jews have been the recipients of hatred over the ages owing to jealousy of their successes. Successful Christians have experienced physical violence and hatred in Muslim countries.

Many haters have had failed experiences, such as bad childhoods, or failed marriages, sexual inabilities, poor performances in school or their work, or financial difficulties.

Maybe the jealous people should stop trying to lift themselves up by putting others down, and work at improving their positions in life.
