What if our interactions with those different from us are strongly influenced by things happening below the radar of awareness, hidden even from ourselves? Shakil Choudhury in his book Deep Diversity explores this question and argues that “us vs. them” is an unfortunate but normal part of the human experience due to reasons of both nature and nurture. To really work through issues of racial difference and foster greater levels of fairness and inclusion, argues Choudhury, requires an understanding of the human mind-its conscious and unconscious dimensions.
