QOTD: "How can people look at the same situation and come up with entirely different conclusions? In Creativity, Inc., Pixar founder Ed Catmull highlighted research showing that only 40 percent of what we see comes from our eyes. The rest is filled in with what our brains expect to see. On the issue of minorities and police departments, the expectations are wildly different, and we’ve stopped looking more closely at the reality.

That’s why we’re likely to see more cities burning in the coming years. The tensions exist, and sooner or later a police incident will ignite the fuse. The specifics of the incident won’t matter nearly as much as the underlying anger. People will see 40 percent of the story with their eyes, and they’ll fill in the rest with what they expect to see.

The only way to avoid such a dismal outcome is to change the other 60 percent of what we “see.” Wise city leaders will get people to “see” the reality that the vast majority of both the police and the minority communities want to make things work. Only after that is a shared recognition can people begin to establish the trust needed to make the cities safer and fairer." --Scott Rasmussen
