I was being both actually. Having been at the receiving end of much intolerance at school being that I went to about 15 or 16 schools I can definitely empathise with others who have not been dealt with kindly in this regard. Thus my statement. Yep, intolerance is a broad blanket word encompassing much that is unjust in this world. Will it ever be stamped out, no. One has to learn how to get along with others and then intolerance is no longer a problem, water off a ducks back and all that. Same goes for racism. Seems that a lot of academics protesteth too much.
