    My parents didn't teach me to hate anyone either. That doesn't mean I'm not (extremely) opinionated, but the opinions are my own.

    Luckily I don't respect my parents, so I didn't assimilate any of their bigotry.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    My mom was born in the deep south in 1930, and left home at 16.
    She made it a point to keep any overt fears or hatred out of our home.

    No one. Growing up with a small business and large extended family with thousands of people to interact with, I was never taught to hate anyone. Just the opposite; I learned how to get along with just about any rational person. My parents were too busy to be hateful towards any specific group of people.

    They didn't teach me to hate anyone... But they sure do a lot of stereotyping.

    (They are pretty racist. I was going to write some anecdotes but I don't want to offend anyone...)

    My dad, I've learned as I've gotten older, is very innocuously racist. It wasn't until I grew up, moved out, and got more perspective (met more people) that I realized how many awkward comments he has about other cultures. It was surprising to me. I just didn't expect that from him. I don't think it really rubbed off on me though, aside from having very little exposure to other races. That was just a result of our community.

    My grandparents used to drop a lot of racist and anti-Semitic garbage into what had otherwise been perfectly nice conversations. Even a small child, however, I realized they were ignorant and lacked understanding. I think that was one of my first awakenings to the fact that adults didn't know everything.

    My parents, on the other hand, did a good job at reinforcing that idea that racism and anti-Semitism were wrong. My brother was a rubella baby, with some cognitive disabilities and developmental delays, so picking on anyone with any kind of disability was out of the question. I think he's a big part of the reason why I've always sided with the underdog.

    However--my father was a narcissist, and part of building himself up meant tearing others down. If I learned to hate anybody from him, it was myself. And I did take a lot of that self-blame and self-loathing out on other people before finally coming to grips with it and getting over it.

    I was taught that Mormons were a cult and believed in secret magic underwear, and that at some point my best friend (who was a Mormon) would try to convert me. One day she asked me if I wanted to come to some church activity and my parents said see, told you so, and then I wasn't allowed to be her friend anymore.

    I was also taught that Catholics were misguided. Protestants, especially Lutherans and Methodists, were the only true religion.

    They didn't say anything about race. Only religion.

    I was a Mormon, and I was taught that we were the only true church. We were above all other churches and had been selected directly by God and Jesus. Glad I questioned everything, and wish now I had questioned even more. I was never taught to hate anyone though, but believing your are better, chosen or above others is almost as bad.
