All you want to do is hate and they give you something to hate on so you hate.
Hate is a powerful emotion.
It drives people to do stupid things,
Have you done something stupid?
What have you done…
You should know better.
We’re not cavemen,
We’re supposed to be civilized people.
But were not are we?
We’re not better than the men who dragged their knuckles on the ground.
We cannot see for the life of us that we are the same.
Black is the same as white,
Gay is the same as Straight.
Why is there a difference?

Our society is far from perfect, but we can certainly make a difference by showing more kindness and love towards one another. I agree with many of the fine points made in this piece. Well done!

This is pretty good.  I like the message (though it is a little preachy...).  I think that you would do well writing an opinion article.

Other than minor grammar errors, I really like this. A strong message, maybe you could try going in from a different angle to send the same message but make it kind of... stick? Really like the meaning in this tho, it's great :)
