Leonard Pitts’ column in today’s paper (“Bigot shocked to find consequences,” Aug. 6, 2018), reminded me of MLK’s advice to judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
The idea of race is an artificial human construct based on religion, nationality and politics. We are all Homo sapiens.
Some northern Europeans may have some Neanderthal in their genetic makeup, but we are all Homo sapiens. Saying that blacks and Jews are races is like saying Christians, atheists and communists are races. Can’t we all just get along and make the world a better place for everyone?
