A Co-worker sent this to me. 

My thoughts went like this:

*** begin quote ***

Would you consider that “race”, whatever that is, is an obsolete paradigm and an erroneous meme?

Changing paradigms is easy; memes are painful.

What did MLK say? “Content of their character” …

and Gandhi “be the change you want to see in the world” …

and the old Catholic hymn “let their be peace on earth and let it begin with me”.

Sigh, I’m just a fat old white guy injineer …

and I “Dona Nobis Pacem”.
