“Not Judged by the Color of Their Skin, But…”

“…by the content of their character.”- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As a nation we have blessedly moved beyond judging people by the color of their skin. We elected a man of color as President of our country.

But as a nation we have also tragically forgotten the last half of Dr. King’s great sentence. We now consider it a high crime to judge someone by their character/behavior. Now we prohibit all forms of judging others, so is it any wonder our nation is in the mess it’s in?
