It isn’t surprising that there are some who simply wish not to be confronted with the issues of prejudices committed by others of which they are a member of their racial class. It would also appear to be condescending that someone who is White would simply deny that there are biases both antagonistic and protagonistic across this Country. The O.J. trial, and now the Zimmerman incident, defines the issues society is faced with in the United States. When defining diversity in terms of specific categories like race or age, it is easy to fall into the trap of essentialist thinking.
