    okay, so i was watching the news the other day and it got me thinking. do we create our own rivals? think about it.. if there was no batman, would there be a joker? no superman means no lex? ( if it is the new cinematic version, that might not be such a bad thing).
    okay enough joking, on to real world examples. let me ask you this, what really started the hatred of the muslim community? it must have been a collection of small isolated incidents that snowballed out of control and well.. here we are.

    thus we circle around to my original question is history repeating it self? first with the muslim community and now with the black community. are people, in ten years, going to be asking themselves "how did we get here?"

    History will always repeat itself, things written 2000+ years ago are still relevant today and, though I can't remember who exactly said this, the quote "everything that has needed to be said, has been said" holds true.

    No history isn't repeating itself.

    We mostly get on in the 21st Century.At least in the west.

    Of course some groups will be looked down on. In the past we didn't have enough knowledge to know religion is nonsense.

    Now we do. And so long as religious people don't impose their beliefs on others everything's fine.

    But killing people for nonsensical reasons will naturally inspire hatred. What on earth would anyone expect?
