Looks like from your post that you perceive the word appearances to only mean skin color. This says a lot about how you see the world.
Oh please. You're the one who throws around accusations of racism here. You should have been banned for it imho.
Categorizing people by looks is instinctive, sure. And it takes conscious effort to stop seeing appearance/skin color as indicative of a person's character, but it is certainly not impossible, nor terribly difficult.
I find great irony in people who clammer on about racism and perceived racism and innate human stereotyping of people via skin pigmentation and then also argue the getting over it is impossible. So I guess MLK was full of shit?
