Jill Scott's "Hate on Me" as an Educational Tool?



I posted this video because I knew I would have to explain to someone why I used the word "hater" in my post about critics blasting Elizabeth Alexander's inaugural poem. You may read that post here: "Praise Song for the Day" or Why Ya'll Be Hatin' on a Sister" at BlogHer.com.

I'm older than the age group that made the words "hater" and "hateration" popular as terms for jealous people or people practicing jealousy, but young enough to catch on.

You made your point very emphatically as well as artistically. I LOVE this song!!
