Hmmm, more tolerant in the sense that many people would expect that these people would be able to go about their business without being bothered, rather than being at a point where most people would say "Well of course they should be able to live their lives peacefully, but they should have known that going _there_ at _that time_ was bound to cause problems...."

I hope we don't go back to that point of expecting discrimination as the norm
