    To me, diversity and tolerance requires a conscious effort. This first considers the differences in people. Instead, I try to focus on what we share in common. I try to give everybody the benefit of the doubt regardless of skin color, ethnic background, etc. A new face gets a clean slate. Show me you. Then I will decide whether or not I like you. Otherwise you are judging or pre-judging(profiling). Making an effort to show how un-prejudiced we are usually results in the opposite. So, telling me that I am required to be more tolerant to diversity for survival is attempting to force me to think a certain way and promotes social engineering.
