The magic word around here is tolerance. Usually, as has been in the
past even for me, people leave because the tolerance is knee deep. It
is easy to be tolerant when one lives in a homogeneous environment.
That, IMO, leads one down a false path called 'Holier Than Thou', and
then those folks can't see the forest of human differences for the
bigot, er I mean big o' trees...<g>
Any community or individual can claim tolerance, but when it gets right
down to it, many times it is never tested because some people live their
lives in an isolated, homogeneous community. That's a two way street,
too...those outside the community are missing the exposure to those in
the community..there is never a chance to culture tolerance..and culture
is the key word, in both meanings as a noun and a verb.
