I Don`t Need Tolerance!From invisible to perfect

“TOLERANCE” has a hidden ,inferiority meaning; “PITY”. A tolerant attitude is not what l want when l am doing my job.I need recognition and to be credited for my work ,or discredited.Corrected if l have erred .Not so long ago ,there was a cry for  tolerance to the great influx of migrants seeking refuge for all the valid reasons into Europe.The migration continues, and will continue, because migration is as old as after creation day.It is not unique to Europe or America only.In fact every country on the globe has its share of migrants. To migrate is natural, an in born right for people to move from one continent to another:”Crossing borders in search of Dignity”.Dignity is the right to be heard,be seen, earn a living , pay taxes and live safely.Being human.Why is the term “tolerate” mean?It is a diminishing word by usage in reference to the expected treatment of migrants. Its implication is the newcomer has nothing to give ,but is there to be helped.Questions to reflect on:Does  not cultural diversity play a more positive role?Don`t both parties benefit?The attitude of tolerating has a degree of prejudice.(one is more superior,the helper) .The lesser is in larger terms not expected to add to the growth of the nation as a whole ,or the well being of others.Who decides what is perfect ? The word tolerance should be completely erased in our human interactions.Let us be more inclusive in the creation of our systems.I say again :”Do not tolerate me.Do not pity me.Let us embrace one another,exchange stories,allow travel or migration.”
