Over the years, I've worked with, developed trusted relationships with, and shared information with people holding a wide variety of passports. A person's professional work, professional reputation, and trusted relationships generally speak to a person much better than the color of their passport. Unfortunately, there are some people and organizations who think along the very analog lines of countries of origin/passport in hand. This is foolish in my opinion -- judge the person not by the color of their passport, but by the content of their work. To not do so could be to needlessly exclude fresh information/a different perspective so often missing in very insular places.
