I learned from my parents, or perhaps it was Gone with the Wind, that you can tell how good a person is by how they treat those who would be commonly seen by certain social standards as "inferiors". People with less education or money, anyone they had authority over such as children and employees, the cashiers and waitresses, minorities, people of different religions, and even the women in their life (such as their mothers, sisters, or coworkers), etc. The measure of a man's character is not how he acts toward people he has reason to impress or considers his equal...such as his boss, your parents, his best friend, but toward people from whom he stands to gain nothing. If my man thought he was better than everyone who was different, thought differently, looked different, or lived differently, I could not continue the relationship.
