Cars, Community, and Love: "Don't fight hate with hate"
 is an example of subtle
 GASLIGHTING.
 Where our legitimate hurt and
 anger at the injustices we suffer is
 being equated to the bigotry and
 abuse of our oppressors.
 Being angry doesn't mean you are
 being hateful, it means you love
 yourself enough to get upset at
 your own mistreatment

<p>Anger and hatred are not the same thing. Anger is seeing an injustice done and gathering together to peacefully protest that grievance. Hatred is smashing businesses that had nothing to do with the injustice, burning cars belonging to people in the community, and spraying someone in the face with pepper spray when their only offense is to disagree with your position. <br/></p>

Being angry is one thing, being hateful is another. You are allowed to be angry but don’t use said anger to be an asshole and come close to end up being the same as the enemy.
