- In a climate of differences in views, beliefs and principles, how can we keep diversity working in society?
- How do you understand tolerance? Diversity?
- How do tolerance and diversity intersect on an issue divisive as this, one that strikes a deep chord because aside from being a religious and a moral issue, marriage is also a right, as well as a secular issue?
- Should tolerance be a two-way street?
- If you are an employer who stand against same-sex marriage based on religious/moral beliefs, how do you stand up for your religious principles without being discriminatory, and running afoul of the law?
- Under what circumstances can you accept or tolerate a same-sex couple?
- Where to draw the line between religious freedom and personal dignity/integrity - so as to make sure no one is punished by law, or discriminated and ostracized for standing up for one's strong, sincere beliefs, religious or secular?

2. Try understanding your needs in the best possible way. Choose yourself a correct plan. You are probably going to need more minutes and internet service if you don’t have one. Also, the same goes with your phone. May be your current phone won’t support and allow all features.
3. Make your phone mark to the level of your own personal brand image. For say, if you are going for an interview and you are dressed well; do not ruin your overall impression with an old scratched phone.
4. Do keep your phone updated and fully- charged. May be you need to carry an extra battery or power- house if you really are a heavy- user. Make it a point to follow the details and guidelines by manufacturers.
5. Try saving time during conversations by saying your name along with hello at first place! Also try filtering calls if you do not find it comfortable to reply at first place.
6. If you are a person who forgets to call back then try setting a reminder so that you do not have to meet a situation of phone ringing in front of your boss.
7. Never complain for the rude tone of your interviewee. Be prepared of such situations in advance. Otherwise, you are going to end-up putting yourself in frustration.

See Dixon White' and His “Racial-HealingVideo-Selfie Challenge”
“A whole bunch of them, and that’s the problem is that white guilt is a defense mechanism,” White said. “I’m not asking anybody to be guilty or feel guilty. I’ve never told anybody to be guilty. What I’ve asked people to do is to take on one of the most immoral things in our society, which is racial and social injustice.” - Read more here:
Social scientists understand racism as a multidimensional and highly adaptive system -- a system that ensures an unequal distribution of resources between racial groups. Because whites built and dominate all significant institutions, (often at the expense of and on the uncompensated labor of other groups), their interests are embedded in the foundation of U.S. society. While individual whites may be against racism, they still benefit from the distribution of resources controlled by their group. - Read more here:
“an innate collection of favoured benefits or circumstances which are not earned, that have been granted to white people, who are often considered to be ‘the mainstream’ in Canada and the U.S. Thus, one is born into white privilege based on the colour of one’s skin and for no other apparent reason.”
“the vacuum of moral authority that comes from simply knowing that one’s race is associated with racism. Whites (and American institutions [and Canadian institutions, too]) must acknowledge historical racism to show themselves redeemed of it (p. 24).”
some white people who are apprised of their experiences of white privilege may feel badly about the intrinsic benefits they perceive that they obtain simply because they are ‘white’, and, to compensate for this, they are overly sensitive, extremely aware, or excessively tolerant toward non-whites.
"[...]The point of identifying and exposing inconsistencies within the social systems and cultural norms of the United States isn’t to make whites feel guilty, but to garner greater empathy that will inspire change. The main problem with white guilt is that it attempts to diminish the spotlight aimed at issues germane to marginalized groups and redirects the focus to a wasteful plane of apologetics and ineffective assessment." - Read more here:
I think a far more effective method would be to challenge people to recognize their own racist behaviors—assuming they have them. That’s really the only way change can come about because racism is built on ideals and truly it’s not enough to just think, am I suspicious of black people or do I think they should be followed around in stores, it’s why do I think that way and how do I implement practices that reinforce my own privilege, like not hiring black people or voting for legislation that disadvantages them. - Read more here:
