Martin Luther King Jr Holiday

For John, BLUFPrejudice gets in the way of progress, and of our humanity.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I had thought we were making progress on race relations, at least compared to my youth, when there were sundown towns and restrictive covenant.  It seems the Reverend King was a sort of high water mark in our progress.  Sadly.

I still hope that we can achieve Reverent King's vision:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
We need to all be working in that direction.

Regards  —  Cliff
