I don't hate you. You don't hate me.

The message: "I could be you, you could be me," is meant to be a very simple and direct way of getting the point across that we are born into the color of skin and ethnicity that we have. This is something that we had no control over. To not accept someone based on his or her beliefs or outside appearance, no matter what aspect: color, religion, sexuality, clothing, hairstyle (!), is to be ignorant of the fact that you could have been born into that race, or that culture which you are rejecting. It is asking you to place yourself in the position of those that you prejudge, and try to understand, respect, and accept them for who they are as individuals. In time, this will ultimately lead to a stronger sense of camaraderie and a better community.
