This past Sunday’s On Being had an interesting conversation about “diversity” with Krista Tippet (“On Being” host) and Jonathan Haidt (progam guest, professor and author of “Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion“).
[Out of context] excerpt from the transcript (you can also listen to the program and read Comments):
“.… Ms. Tippett: There’s some place you talked about, uh, some work you’d done with some of your students that, what’d you say that diversity was like cholesterol? That we need the good kind and the bad kind, we need all — we need difference. And it’s okay for — for all these [laughs] I want to find it. You know what — you — you say it.
