Violence and hate are easiest to perpetuate on the ethnographic “other.” People that are different than you are not people, therefore you can do anything you want to them. What this video expertly shows is that it doesn’t take much to be the ethnographic other, and atrocities are atrocities no matter the perceived differences. Hate and violence breed hate and violence. Abuse leads to violent reaction.
What happens when YOU become the other? Stand up for those who are different, those that are powerless, those that have no voice- because someday that “other” might be you.
