When a person 'tolerates' something, it means she can't stand it, but she'll try to anyways. Often, when I hear people talking about race issues, they mention being 'tolerant' of other races.
Screw that shit. I would hate for anyone to 'tolerate' me. If you want to understand where I'm coming from, what my history is, what invigorates me, then take the time and effort to find out.
Not many people know about Sikhs. But not many people will find out through 'tolerance'. Work to understand and love others. But please, don't 'tolerate' anyone. People are so much better than your 'tolerance'.
