It would seem that the essence of humanity has been reduced to one's skin color; a sad commentary on an intelligent being.

Sadly mgeorge there are more then 'some'. As you say "the media", exploits skin tone, but the question is why. Is it for profit or to promote division.
In speaking of human 'essence' what is it, precisely, that makes one human. What is it that sets us apart and above other animals, considering that we are only 1.3 % (DNA) different than our cousin the chimp?
You are correct Paul. The essence transcends skin color through a great spirit of caring that presents love, commitment, strength, integrity, honor, and persistent patriotism in support of all others. Semper Fi
The question was more to those who feel the need to first identify themselves with skin color, as if it provides purpose and identity. I would agree that ones history is all that is within the individual, but action is the definer.
