In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, a few words about diversity.
One of the greatest roadblocks to real equality among people has been the 'so called' celebration of our differences. Slavery, not only in America but in the history of mankind, is a 'celebration' of diversity. Hitler's Nazi Germany was equally a celebration. Ethnic cleansing in Bosnia? You bet.
As our country once again pauses to to honor the man who dreamed that one day children would be judged "by the content of their character, not the color of their skin", we should hearken back to that most important message.
Let us celebrate our commonality. That spirit would truly honor Dr. King.
