The interesting thing about the term Hater as opposed to a Lover from otis Redding's "Tramp" to Marvin Gaye's "Distant Lover", the whole period of Soul and Motown was full of Love and even folks in gangs called each other Sister and Brother, and men did not fell funny or accused of being homosexual foer saying, "Hey I Love you man!" to each othr the way Bill Cosby said to George Foreman, in "Let's do it Again". That glorious period of Black power, and ulifting music had no description or designated life style like Hip Hop has for the past 20 years, enertainment was just that entertainment and real life was real life. Adults at 19- 30 were not intewresting in going out in public dressed like they did when they were 16. But when Hip Hop came around there was a costant degradtion of what is termed; "A Knowledge of Self" and gradualy "Being Deaf Dumb and Blind to the Knowledge of Self" became practicaly a fashion statement and a badge of honor. The pleasant all in fun toasting of the beginners of hip hop, and bragging of who is better deteriorated into hatred songs by the time Onyx, NWA and I ce Tea came on the scene, expressed in extremeley and excruciatingly graphic descriptions of fratricide and the celebration and glorification of it. What also occured at that time were the elders in the community looking at the behaviors that occured after gangsta rap, and the inrcrease in school violence, rapes among teens, and jails filling with younger and younger killers and drug dealers. So when the elders adults, clergy and community activists in the community scolded the teens about their anti-community behavior, They called them haters kinda interesting when Black folks comment on neconservative, and nihilistic policies coming from Washington, they are called haters as well!
