I said it would be a MAJOR difference, but not an impossible one. The
majority group must be sensitive to and accommodate the differences of the
minority, but the minority must accept the fact that they ARE the minority
and conform as much as possible to the majority's standards and practices
if they expect to get along. This is true of handedness, religion, race,
ethnicity, and many other differences between people.
