HE may or may not have any reason to hate "these people " ( presumably he felt a bit differently when he chose to father the child ) but he has no reason whatsoever to hate the child or to neglect it. Don't YOU feel guilty and hurt because he has been behaving immaturely and unfairly towards the child, it's surely not your fault that he does so.
But look after yourself and take srious warning from this --- the way he treats this child makes it far more unlikely that he would treat you, or any child you might have, any better in the long run. Do you really deserve to have a man like this in your life ?
