In contrast with the events of the Slav, Meraglim, Bnot Moav and Ba'al Pe'or, with Korach Hashem is more patient and attempts to educate the Jews. Why was there a different reaction here? Because although Korach was wrong about Moshe and Aharon, there could be room to complain about systemic bias in Judaism, and this is something about which we need to be careful.
