Respond to the following questions, using Dr. Kings text “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Do programs that specifically target the hiring of minorities in police departments or acceptance into law school of minority applicants work with the statement of Dr. King or against it? There has been much focus on police departments reflecting the communities they serve (as it applies to race). Is this important? Is the color of the officer important? Is the content of the officer’s character important? Is it truly a mix of the two and not a simple dichotomy?
Make sure you look at and discuss all possible avenues, even those you know you disagree with.
