Respect Checklist

Respect is a recognition of human dignity and a key factor in all interactions between people of different backgrounds. Despite its importance, respect is subjective and difficult to evaluate. A good way to objectively evaluate and promote respect is to use my respect checklist:
R - Race and Religion
E - Education, Employment, and Economics
S - Social Network and Status
P - Priorities and Past Experiences
E - Expectations
C - Courtesy
T - Tolerance
