The Message of King Missed in the Present?

Wasn't Martin Luther King Jr.'s message precisely that we should look past skin color, to the content of an individual's character?

Why then are so many in such a frenzy over our first black president? I have no doubt that in the coverage of the inauguration tomorrow the media will focus squarely on Obama's skin color, rather than look past it.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Wouldn't King's dream be that we not care, at all, what color Obama is?
