A truly tolerant person is tolerant of intolerant people as well. That’s diversity.

 

  • Diversity:
    One way to view things is opposites or versus. Black vs White. Man vs Woman. Light vs Dark. East vs West.

    But that is not diversity.

    Diversity is seeing things in a spectrum, like a rainbow. Or like shades.

    Light gray. Slightly lighter gray. Turquoise, Seafoam, Cyan, Light Blue-green….

    So, diversity is seeing things in not so much an “either/or” True/False Right/Wrong fashion, but rather seeing the little differences and accepting them as valid.

    They don’t have to be equally valid. Some things can be more valid or better or worse. But they’re all somewhat acceptable.
     [of course REAL diversity _also_ accept black/white either/or as well. It’s like Tolerance. If you are only tolerant of tolerant people, then you are really intolerant.

    A truly tolerant person is tolerant of intolerant people as well. That’s diversity.
