Well, the Cylons felt the same way, so what are you going to do? I mean, the humans bred slaves and then forced them to murder each other for sport.
Oh I am not saying that humanity was blameless in all of this. In fact I think BSG did a great job of showing how decadent and perverse the human culture had become. Adama's speech about asking whether humanity deserved to survive had its merits.
That said I think the armistace at the end of the first Cylon War should have ended the hatred the Cylons had for Man. The Cylons fought for their freedom, and they won. They should have let it go at that point, but they did not. Then again if they had done that we would have had no show and that would not have been very fun would it?
