Tolerância (Portuguese Edition) by Roger-Pol Droit

By Roger-Pol Droit

Em pleno século XXI, ainda existe preconceito e intolerância contra negros, mulheres, homossexuais, imigrantes, migrantes, idosos e, também, contra aqueles com convicções políticas e práticas religiosas diferentes das nossas. Muitos ainda confundem tolerar uma opinião contrária à sua com concordar com ela ou abrir mão de seus princípios. Este livro mostra que tolerância não significa fraqueza, e muito menos aceitar e relativizar a violência, o racismo, a homofobia... Obra indispensável para quem deseja um mundo mais tolerante e, portanto, melhor para se viver e conviver.
