Needed: Creative Thinking + A Collective Time-Out

We've seen a lot of race-baiting in public discourse recently. I appreciated this article, "Everything Professor Gates & Sergeant Crowley Needed to Know, I Learned at a Montessori School" by Jehmu Greene that appeared on Huffington Post today.

Greene argues that we need more critical thinking and conflict resolution skills to effectively work through racial conflicts. She writes:

A person's ability to solve problems in the midst of a heated situation is directly related to the number of possible solutions he can think of in that moment.

I'm guilty. So true.
