Tolerance Challenge

Challenge Details

Tell us a tale about those feelings of superiority the Gondorians seemed to have to pretty much all men. Or Legolas and Gimli, and their fathers, and countrymen, and... 'nuff said. Both Boromir and the Rohirrim seemed to have a lurking fear of Lothlorien; hobbits were suspicious to say the least of "Big Folk". (Sam's reaction to Strider, anyone?)

And lest we forget, Elves (first age and otherwise) had a *lot* to be resentful for, to other races and the different groups among elves themselves. A lot of this really is Fëanor's fault, but even the Fëanorians must have had reasons for their grudges. And reasons to eventually overcome them.

Make us cringe, make us cry, make us laugh - any race, age, or genre so long as it touches on the topic of equality and acceptance or lack thereof.
