Dr. King Must Be Spinning In His Grave

"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."  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

How far the left has strayed from those ideals when we read articles like this one published in The Atlantic:
Color-Blindness Is Counterproductive
Many sociologists argue that ideologies claiming not to see race risk ignoring discrimination...

Many sociologists, though, are extremely critical of colorblindness as an ideology. They argue that as the mechanisms that reproduce racial inequality have become more covert and obscure than they were during the era of open, legal segregation, the language of explicit racism has given way to a discourse of colorblindness. But they fear that the refusal to take public note of race actually allows people to ignore manifestations of persistent discrimination.
What's a decent person to do? You're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
