Deputy Superintendent Brookline Police Department

Grapes, like people, come in hundreds of different shapes, shades and varieties; but most of us rarely venture to evaluate other types of grapes. People come in many different shades, too. Like our grape selections, we get accustomed to what we know and rarely stray from it. But we’ll never know if we have a preference or a bias, unless we step out of our comfort zone and give something different and new a try. Michael Gropman is a adjunct professor of psychology and a local police commander. In this talk from TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet he explores decreasing our bias and making intolerance intolerable.
