    It’s a good thing those clever right-wingers finally figured out that what he *really* meant by “judge not by the color of their skin…” isn’t that racist white motherfuckers should stop being racist white motherfuckers, but that black people should stop pointing out that racist white motherfuckers keep being racist white motherfuckers.

    Actually they are correct that there is no good reason for the “white” annotation there. We should carry on pointing out that they are racist motherfuckers. The particular color of their skin is rather irrelevant.

    I couldn’t care less if a racist motherfucker is yellow, white, black, brown or whatever racial label you want to hang on said RMFs. I despise them all equally, because I judge them by the content of their (fetid) character, not the color of their skin.

    That speech is just incredible. I don’t think I’ve ever heard (or read) one more stirring. Has any public figure’s speech since then become so powerfully lodged in the nation’s conscience?

    I share MLKs dream, but every time I apply for a job or a grant, or fill out virtually any other form, I am always asked to identify my skin color.

    Pretty sure you can refuse to answer that question without consequences.
