Why is it "❤❤❤ tolerant" and not "❤❤❤ tolerante"?

Because the -e is only ever added when the adjective is directly before the noun, so:

"De tolerante mensen" (the tolerant people)

"De mensen zijn tolerant" (the people are tolerant)

Thanks, I didn't realise it was "only before the noun", I thought it was "as long as it's not at the end".
