Perhaps we have too much of a black-and-white perspective on what Martin Luther King, Jr. was saying when he urged us to elevate "content of character" above "color of skin" in his 1963 speech. No doubt, he was talking about racial injustice, but our insensitivity is much broader than that. It isn't any better to judge people based on other select things we disagree with or disapprove of -- like sexual behavior or political affiliation. We must look deeper than that to find the content of someone's character.
