Does teaching children about hate inadvertently teach them to hate?
I definitely think so. Since I was never taught hate and never taught it to my own I can only judge that by our lack of hate.
We can see in the world today too how hate is instilled from childhood up and I am not sure you can even call people like that human beings for they have no compassion and will kill their own or even themselves on the false teachings they have learned. Maybe it is just the lack of love.
Hate is a natural human instinct, but with the wrong environmental influences it can be made worse. There is no way to get rid of hate completely because it is in our nature to dislike things we have little knowledge of, don't understand, or that is different than our own personal views. Sadly mix that human nature with knowledge of more hate and it gives a target for our basic need to find something they don't like.
You don't have to teach it. It is already inside. At the point a child doesn't get his way, because of someone else, the potential is there. He may instantly dislike that person. Thoughout life, there will be slights, rude behavior and blatant aggressive activities towards individuals, in schools, at jobs etc. Unless they have an alternative philosophy, dislike and hate may be the response.
