Put a Stop to Haters

We sure have an outbreak of haters stalking people publicly in social media and for that matter in politics.  Even for politics, it’s over the top this year.

Recording artists and entertainers have become so good at hating on people that it has become a sick art form almost expected now to go along with the territory of being famous.

But it also happens at schools where our children attend.

Imagine the things you were bullied for when you went to school and then try to imagine how you would feel if you could never get away from that bullying because of social media.

That’s haters in the digital world.

Haters must be called out.

If you don’t hate all Muslims, you must stand up and say so.

If you don’t like the ways the LGBT community is treated, speak up.

By accepting bullying in the public domain we are winking at our children when we say don’t hate on others – sending the wrong message instead of a strong message.

Bullies must be pushed back and they will run.

And bullying takes place at offices – I know of many cases in the broadcasting industry.  That would stop tomorrow if people would call it out.

Remember how the poet laureate of Millennials, Taylor Swift sums it up:

“If you’re horrible to me, I’m going to write a song about it, and you won’t like it. That’s how I operate.”
