Yes, Im writing a blog about haters.


But I dont want this to be just another blog post about haters. I would rather lay out to you, my readers, a qualitative analysis of haters. Im stating that hating in society has become needed on some levels as a basic form of survival while the perception of "hate" in society has gone from "basic human emotion" to "red flag/possible problematic person ahead/avoid at all costs". Thus one must look at the actions of haters with a keen eye and measure them individually against a classic scale.

You can call this the scale.

As we all know, haters proliferate the world we live in.  Seems like everyday I see another hater hating their way thru the day.  I got hated on 20 minutes ago when I got breakfast from Carl's Jr... the lady must have been having a bad morning but she didnt want to give up that extra Ranch or BBQ sauce without a little hating, but hey, hate hate on baby....

Now I like to cut people breaks on that sort of stuff. Like I said, she could have had a bad morning. The little hating I can take.  Its the larger, more significant forms of hating that cannot go un-addressed. This is where I started thinking that with the level of hating that goes on today there actually have to be different levels of haters.

Now that you know the thesis, lets clear up some thought processes and definitions.

According to the top vote getters on  Urban Dictionary,  a hater is/can be:
"A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success."
"A person who feels anger and/or jealousy for someone who has succeeded in something they have worked hard for"
"A label applied to people who are more negative than positive when discussing another person. It most commonly refers to individuals whose negativity is so extreme that it is all-consuming."
 That last definition goes on to elude to the varieties and levels of hating and haters, yet does nothing to define them. In my mind, there are 5 Levels of Haters: haters that were taught to hate, haters that choose to hate, haters that grew to hate, haters that lie, and finally haters that do (and are) all of the above.

The haters that hate you to your face simply because they are jealous and envious are your basic level 1 haters. Most of the time those people grew up around a Level 2 or Level 3 hater that never let an opportunity pass them by to pass down their hater ways.  These are your basic racists, reverse-racists, gender-haters (man & woman), status haters, clothing haters, car haters etc etc...  Typically, these are people who dont have shit, never really were gonna be shit, aint shit to you any dayum way, so shit on them by acting like they dont matter. 

Someone that hates online, in an office or some other form of community (like a church), thats your level 2 hater. These haters are ones that know how hating can stunt the growth of any group effort, yet use hating to their advantage for some sort of short-term personal benefit.  Haters like this tend to deny or bury the existence of their hate, only sometimes realizing later that their level of hate is deeper than a Level 1, yet only for a mere instant, for they are typically too stupid to retain a magnanimous thought for any measurable amount of time.   Ever seen a drunk have a moment of clarity, realizing they are about to become an alcoholic? Only the smart ones seem to make it out huh... The rest take another shot and give a fuck less.

The only difference between a Level 2 and a Level 3 hater is the ability for Level 3 haters to recover. Some Level 2 haters drop the bullshit and actually make a conscious effort to stop hating.  Level 3 haters, since they have grown into the hate they live with, are more the type to wallow in that hate and never come out. Most stay in that mode forever, seeing their life as the sum of the experiences they endure, rather than continue to hope that there is a better world out there for them to aspire to.  Another reason to be very weary of a Level 3 hater.  Remember, it matters not what Level of hater you are confronted by, only that you recognize it and take the appropriate action.

Level 4 haters are in their own special category because I just have such a passion for people who back up their statements with lies. This is like the guy who is clowning on someone for wearing something bootlegg, knowing damm  well his clothes are bootlegg.  Or another personal favorite, the racist white man with a asian wife. Its just such a walking contradiction that Level 4 haters get to be put in a more ignorant place than a female Level 3 hater who hates all men because she has been divorced 3 times w/3 kids & no support payments coming in. 

Which brings us to the Level 5 hater.  This is someone you have to respect. No joke a Level 5 hater has to spend so much time hating that you actually have to step back and take it all in. You will be in awe over the amount of hate they can produce, swear to god its almost inspiring.  These people will hate on dead folks, disabled people, retards, even young children. A shameless Level 5 hater thus must be worth at minimum your respect, not only cuz they are top dogg amongst haters, they dont give a fuck & will hate on anything for no reason!  Rush Limbaugh I see you!!


Now that we have established the different levels of hate, lets look at the overall level of hate in society. To get a grasp on it I will outline a simple model on how hate is introduced from one person to another, thus growing the circle of hate, and how that growth is known to be exponential.

It used to be called "gossip," and all gossip was spoken from one person to the next. Still, even when the stories had to be told in 1-on-1 situations, "the word" about folks still spread like wildfire.  Now, instead of just spoken, gossip can be texted, voicemailed, e-mailed, tweeted, re-tweeted, status'd, even blogged & printed.  Hollywood paparazzi literally feed their loved ones on the gossip that the "superstars" provide. Just think about that for a can literally eat food because Lindsay Lohan went off the wagon for a night & made out with a girl... and daddy was there to catch all the highlights... whatta world... lol

I think it is safe to say that "haterism" in 2010 is at an all-time high.
