Study Shows America Has Become More Tolerant of of Nearly Everyone, Except towards all people who are Racist.

By Marcie Bianco
Thursday, March 19, 2015

While the contemporary American climate may be fraught with racial tensions and intense discussions about inequalities for women and minorities, a new study published by the journal Social Forces has concluded that over the past 40 years America actually has become a more tolerant nation than ever before.

The one thing we're not tolerant of? Racists

The study assesses America's collective tolerance of five controversial "outgroups," or minority groups, between 1972 and 2012: "homosexuals, Communists, anti-religious atheists, militarists, and racists." According to its findings, not only have Americans become more tolerant on the whole, but individual generations, especially Baby Boomers (born 1946–1964), have each shown increasing tolerance regarding multiple social issues, most predominately homosexuality.

Tolerance for racists remained the lowest of the five categories throughout the decades — that is, it seems the one thing Americans are not tolerant of is intolerance.

While younger generations may celebrate the study's findings, they must also recognize that tolerance is not equivalent to acceptance. In fact, if this study stresses anything, it's that we need to think more about empathy, and not mere tolerance, as the key toward societal progress.

Tolerance, defined: "We define tolerance as agreeing that controversial outgroups should be allowed public expression," researchers Jean Twenge, Nathan Carter and W. Keith Campbell explain in the study. "Tolerance is an important indicator of how societies treat people with views and lifestyles divergent from their average members."

The researchers discovered that tolerance has a strong positive correlation with education and "individualistic attitudes, including rejecting traditional social rules." The latter factor is particularly crucial for changing levels of tolerance over time; the sloughing off of conservative attitudes in favor of more liberal, accepting ones predicates a seismic change in societal tolerance.

But "tolerance" is not "empathy." Surprisingly, the rise of individualism in America (favoring the needs or desires of the individual over those of the group), which has led to the increase in educational attainment and thus growing tolerance, is also linked to lower levels of empathy.

To tolerate someone's existence is not the same as understanding their physical or emotional existence in the world. The researchers cite the "extreme example" of Tyler Clementi, the freshman at Rutgers who committed suicide after feeling bullied at school:

"[A]t Rutgers University in 2010, a young man (Dharun Ravi)
expressed tolerance of his roommate (Tyler Clementi) being gay, but displayed a lack of empathy by filming Clementi's sexual encounter with another man, leading to Clementi's suicide ... This is an extreme example, but it illustrates that tolerance and empathy can be distinct."

Arguably, it is this division between tolerance and empathy that has hindered additional progress on social issues, perhaps most notably race relations in America, which require more than just a scribbled hashtag campaign on your coffee cup.

Twenge, Carter and Campbell show that America has taken great strides in tolerance — now let's do even better in terms of empathy and acceptance to create real change.

"We need to return to a long held value of compassion. Compassion and Empathy. Online, we've got a compassion deficit, an empathy crisis. Researcher Brene Brown said, and I quote, "shame can't survive empathy." "Shame cannot survive empathy." I've seen some very dark days in my life. It was the compassion and empathy from my family, friends, professionals, and sometimes even strangers, that saved me. Even empathy from one person can make a difference.

The theory of minority influence, proposed by social psychologist Serge Moscovici, says that even in small numbers, when there's consistency over time, change can happen.

In the online world we can foster minority influence by becoming upstanders. To become an upstander means instead of bystander apathy, we can post a positive comment for someone or report a bullying situation. Trust me, compassionate comments help abate the negativity.

We can also counteract the culture by supporting organizations that deal with these kinds of issues, like the Tyler Clementi Foundation in the US. In the UK there's Anti-Bullying Pro and in Australia there's Project Rocket.

We talk a lot about our right to freedom of expression, but we need to talk more about our responsibility to freedom of expression. We all want to be heard, but lets acknowledge the difference between speaking up with intention and speaking up for attention. The Internet is the super highway for the id, but online showing empathy to others benefits us all, and helps create a safer and better world.

We need to communicate online with compassion, consume with compassion, and click with compassion. Just imagine walking a mile in someone else's headline."

The price of shame
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

Watch this video about Tyler Clementi story on YouTube. This is a perfect example of how bullying affects people. He took his own life because people picked on him for being bisexual. You think your words don't mean anything? Your words mean a whole lot more than you think. It's not a game. Do you think it's funny to call someone names and pick on them? It's not funny or cool. It's just plain wrong. #StopBullying. It's nothing to joke about.

Also help people if they are getting bullied. Don't ignore them and think it's not your business. That's just as bad as bullying them. How could you honestly sit there and do nothing? Do you honestly like people to get hurt? Don't be that person who does nothing. Stand up for that person and speak out against bullying. You can make a real difference in someone's life. Don't wait until it's too late to do something. Don't let another person comment suicide. #StopBullying.

Could Dharun Ravi win new trial in Tyler Clementi webcam case?

NEW BRUNSWICK — The N.J. Supreme Court’s decision this week striking down a portion of the state’s bias crime statute could win Dharun Ravi a new trial in the Tyler Clementi webcam case, his attorney said. The appeal of Ravi’s 2012 guilty verdict that included several bias intimidation charges is still ongoing, according to his attorney, Steven Altman of New Brunswick. But it now takes a different turn, he said. The decision, released Tuesday, struck down the third section of the statute that focused on the victim’s state of mind and said it is the defendant’s intent and state of mind that is important, not the victim’s.
