Tolerance and Diversity


We’re building a country based on something everybody should master before entering kindergarten – you’re not supposed to hate people who aren’t exactly the same as you. Right. Got it. Moving right along, we have diversity. The problem is, diversity isn’t a value or a virtue, it’s a mere set of facts. Merriam Webster defines “diverse” as “being composed of distinct or unlike elements or qualities”. Put whole wheat bread in the same box as white.

[..] Tolerance? I expect that from my dog. Diversity? I get that when he’s in the same room as the cats.
