When did it become okay to hate people because of their circumstance?

So I was reading through an article on PBS about School lunch’s. It’s a good objective article, nothing wrong with it. Then I began to read through some of the comments on it. I honestly can’t believe how many people would be okay if we stopped providing free/reduced lunches for children in school. It’s the same scenario I see played out all over the place. People angry at the poor. As if they somehow wish to be in that situation. I just don’t understand it.

I read some of the comments. People are so hateful. No one cares about each other anymore. People these days have the attitude of, “If it doesn’t effect me directly I don’t care.” Look where its gotten them…shaming children over lunch money. Despicable.
