Primus Mootry: The color conundrum: race, ethnicity and diversity


It's a thing called merit. It's not just based on test scores or college degrees, but also passion, dedication, innate ability, and the drive to get things done, too.

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
