Letter: DEI vs MLK: Is it all still a dream?

Jan 22, 2024

You know, I can’t change my skin color, race, origin, etc. Those are immutable characteristics. What I can change is my skills. Information on the web is open to everyone. Everyone has access to it. Merit is the greatest equalizer.

Just passed the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. He is most remembered for his ‘I have a Dream’ speech, in which he said ‘…that my children will be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.’ Why aren’t we doing that? Is it still just a dream?
