    Only if the hater allows it to grow unrestricted.

    Yes, it does. That isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Studies or anything to prove this? I know I've heard about this, but never seen it proven.

    I know I'm more easygoing than most but when I'm discriminated against I either laugh and go along with it, successfully destroying the discriminator, or I remember this:

    and life is all sunshine and lollipops.

    People who focus too much on hate and it's "negative side effects" only perpetuate those side effects. Now, physical violence as a result of hate, yeah that has visible effects. Just hate? Eh. People can get over it. Unless dey is a BITCH.

    I hate pedophiles. I don't believe this has a negative effect on my mental health.

    I also discriminate against them, or would if given the opportunity. For example, I would absolutely support legislation banning them from working with children.

    Does that have a negative effect on them? I sure hope so.

    Re: Is racism wrong?

    I don't hate anyone based on their race, but I do tend to be more cautious when a black male with loose single colored clothing is in my presence. But that could just be my "racist" tendencies instead of life experience huh?

    Profiling and Racism are two different beasts. Profiling will save your life, whereas racism might endanger it.

    I hate to pull this card... but a hefty amount of "liberal" individuals prosecute the two identically.
