Abandon Mean "Memes"

I am growing increasingly disturbed with "memes." So many of those pithy pictures and quotes are designed to divide people. So many memes essentially say, if you do not agree with me, you are subhuman. Making people into subhuman "others" is the first step toward violence against them. Before sending another hateful meme, we should all pause and ask ourselves, "Who do I know who is being unfairly tarred by the gross generalization here?"

Let's all do what we can to stem the tide of divisive hatred leading to violence.

Thanks.
