When does tolerance reach a point of diminishing returns? Check out this interesting post by Jo Simon at 100 Bloggers in which Jo raises some interesting questions about immigration and integration in Germany.
We struggle with this question in the U.S., as well.
Jo writes that we must have courage. I agree. We must have the courage to face the truth. That said, courage can be very difficult difficult when facing the possibility of being labelled a racist.
But ultimately, I believe, we must do all that we can to understand and accept cultural differences on this shrinking planet, BUT not at the expense of an individual's civil rights.
