    Poor Guy...

    I used to know this guy who had problems with speaking, everyone was just so mean to him about it. Poor thing, he really was a genuinely nice guy, people just never got the message.

    I Tend to Have a Very Short...

    I tend to have a very short fuse, and no patience for people who are ignorant or selfish.  I should be more tolerant, and maybe try to find out why a person is like that.

    YES. ...

    YES. I tend to be very close minded about things than others. And they are very strange things too. I hate people who complain all the time and I often find myself telling someone to suck it up and quit complaining because I don't give a crap. I should just be more patient.

    Tolerance Is Pretty Cool, So I've Heard

    Some people don't understand how picking on somebody can really ruin their day. Or their life. You never really know how someone will react.. What's wrong with just being "ok" with everybody? I don't see why drama, especially identifying people by their faults instead...

    Wowzerssss

    I can't believe I hadn't found this group sooner... As idealistic as it may sound, I feel this is the sole purpose in my life, to advocate tolerance, acceptance. After all, diversity is the spice of life.

    Half.

    Tolerant? Accepting. One implies letting something happen, but not letting it be--it's passive aggressive. The other implies letting something be because you see the beauty, even when the bad is shadowing it.

    End

    The ******* horridness of discrimination. There is something everything can be discriminated because of, and because of this, we should have learned a long time ago that if we hate one person we shoudl hate all persons. Just, don't hate please. Everyone needs someone.
