  1. Stages of Genocide

  2. Genocide • Any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group: • Killing members of the group • Causing serious bodily or mental harm to the group • Deliberately inflicting conditions of life designed to bring about the group’s destruction • Imposing measures to prevent births within the group • Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

  3. Classification & Grouping • People are divided into "us and them". • Haters feel required to have others hate as they do. • Groups provide the anonymity in which to express hate without being held responsible.

  4. Symbolization & Definition • When combined with hatred, symbols may be forced upon unwilling members of outcast groups. • Hate groups create symbols designed to enhance the members' status and degrade the object of their hate.

  5. Dehumanization & Disparaging • One group denies the humanity of the other group. • Members of it are equated with animals, vermin, insects or diseases. • By verbally degrading the object of their hate, haters try to improve their own self-image and group status.

  6. Organization & Training • Genocide is always an organized effort. • Special army units or citizen militias are trained and armed to carry out violence.

  7. Polarization & Taunting • Hate groups broadcast polarizing propaganda. • “If you’re not with us, you’re against us” is a common theme. • Haters increase hate speech and violence by using taunts and offensive gestures.

  8. Preparation & Attacks without weapons • Victims are identified and separated out because of their ethnic or religious identity. • This stage is critical because it separates vocally abusive haters from physically abusive ones.

  9. Extermination & Attacks with weapons • It is "extermination" to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human.

  10. Denial • The perpetrators deny that they committed any crimes. • “I was only doing what I was ordered to do” is often used as an excuse. • The ultimate destiny of hate is the physical and psychological destruction of both the hater and the hated.
