Exploring Leadership in the News with Steven Pearlstein and Raju Narisetti
Zero tolerance on race talk?
Like Trent Lott before him, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is in political hot water over his comments about Barack Obama's race. Should leaders, in particular, be held to a "zero tolerance" policy on potentially offensive racial comments, or does that have a chilling effect, silencing all discussion of racial issues?

We will have succeeded as a nation when we can engage in respectful conversations about race without fear or censure, but instead with a true desire to understand perspectives that may be different from our own.
