...although all of your questions are good, none of them is necessary 
to discuss the =fundamentals= involved in manifestations of hatred...

...you see, the problems of "prejudice" and "hatred" have just been 
ignored by Neuroscience, so =any= experimentally-substantiated progress 
with respect to them is infinitely-better than what has existed...

...with this said, all that is necessary to comprehend the biological 
wellspring of "prejudice" and "hatred" is an analysis if how the 
body-environment interface is mapped into and out of the nervous 

...all that's necessary is to demonstrate how "attacking" 
and/or "moving-away-from" behaviors are mapped with respect to 
particular environmental inputs... 

...in other words, at it's =fundamental= levels, the problem is purely 
Geometrical... I've discussed the relevant Geometry, and I've discussed 
the Geometry of the neural activation dynamics which underpin 
"attacking" and "moving-away-from" behaviors, I've discussed =why= the 
Geometry is as it is, and I've discussed higher-level ramifications of 
all of this...

...if you want me to go over everything again, I will... ken collins
People hate because they fear, and they fear because
they do not understand, and they do not understand 
because hating is less work than understanding.
