I wanted to thank Cathy Gillentine for her column about Barbara Jordan ("One thing I've learned, the more you know the less you hate," The Daily News, Feb. 16).

The column was really about much more.

Tolerance, compassion, empathy and understanding were my takeaways. I, too, have been called communist, socialist, etc., but mostly, I'm just human and love my fellow man no matter what color, religion or ethnicity.

Sometimes, I feel like the only one. I'm very glad to know I'm not.
