During the last couple of weeks, I have heard a lot of comments, conversations and discussions around the whole of idea of multicultural diversity, or simply diversity. The theme has been very present during the last elections here in Canada.
Why? Because diversity means difference - we, humans, have a lot of trouble with the whole idea/concept of difference. I am planning to write a longer post about this issue, but for the moment I want to share with you a quote from Audre Lorde that describes the problem clearly.
