Good news: Some children of haters turn out OK

So often I see pictures of demonstrations by white supremacists in which their children are right there spewing the same kind of hate as their parents. It's what they've been taught. It's all they know.

Fortunately, however, not all children of haters grow up to be haters themselves. Some rise above the brainwashing to think for themselves and choose tolerance over hate. Some even fight back against their racist parents. This was recently confirmed in a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups and fights against discrimination.

It was refreshing and inspiring to read the several case histories of children who grew up to reject their parents' lifestyle of hate and intolerance.
