Step Out of Your Little World

I've just finished watching this fantastic TED talk by sociologist Sam Richards, an iconclast from Ohio that David Horowitz called one of the 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. A professor at Penn State University, Professor Richards also heads up the World in Conversation Project which you can explore at this link.

After watching this 20 minute video, let me know what you thought about it in the comments section. If you're up for a challenge, provide some insights on how Professor Richard's idea of "walk in the other's shoes a few inches" form of empathy can be applied on a concrete, this-is-where-I-live basis.
