This hits me where I live.
The sheer elegant argument that trivial physical characteristics like skin color do not matter is a common theme throughout Trek. It's hard to see how we've come full circle back to "skin color matters more than anything else."
Yes, I get the nuance about lived experiences; but lived experiences aren't limited by physical characteristics. A black person can experience being marginalized. So can a white person. So can a man. So can a woman. So can a gay person. So can a straight person. So can every permutation of physical characteristics under the sun.
