Why is our country not asking the broader societal question:


Why is our skin color, ancestral heritage etc. important to anyone? We are all individuals and should be judged solely by the content of our character to borrow from MLK. It still rings true (to me) today.
If we all could trace our ancestry far enough back, we all would be able to identify with some "tribe". So effin what? It should mean exactly nothing to anyone. Identity politics, one giant step backwards for homo sapiens.
