Unpacking diversity

November 11, 2011

When my friend Ethan headed off to grad school at UC-Berkeley in 1997 or so, he sent me what he described as a Left Winger Starter Kit. It included a rainbow-colored “Celebrate Diversity” bumper sticker.

I didn’t have a car at the time, so I put it on a bulletin board. When the bulletin board eventually got relegated to the basement, so did the bumper sticker.

In sorting through and disposing of items from the basement, I came across the bumper sticker and thought, “This thing has never had a chance to adorn a motor vehicle. Maybe its time has come.”

I hope it enjoys the ride.


  1. Nice car 🙂

    I hope the sticker really means to celebrate all types of diversity, not just the politically correct types.

  2. Bob: Yes, diverse interpretations of “diversity” are appropriate here.
