Yesterday, I got a text from a daily raceAhead reader that got me thinking. “I did a Red Team analysis on your last 25 newsletters and the word "Grim" comes up 17 times. Sounds rough out there,” she wrote.

Hmmm. Point taken. Maybe it’s time for some good news?

Some recent findings from the Pew Research Center should do the trick. Turns out that most of us in the U.S. think diversity is a good thing:

"Nearly two-thirds of Americans (64%) say an increasing number of people from different races, ethnic groups and nationalities in the U.S. makes the country a better place to live; fewer (29%) think growing diversity in the country does not make much difference, and just 5% think it makes the country a worse place to live."
