I posted this graphic on my Facebook page and asked for reactions. Many responded that Maya was referring to hating people. If pressed, she probably would have agreed with that, but these kinds of platitudes are seldom precise enough to stand on their own.
My initial thought was, “What about World War II and abolition?” It was our hatred for slavery and the Axis powers that solved these problems. And since you can’t have a Nazi or slavery without persons behind them, then there must be a certain sense in which this hatred (or righteous indignation) is directed at persons.
