This is a comment by Jimbo on the post ““I Don’t See Race”: Racial Color Blindness and Eradicating Racism“.
I’ve always thought the concept of “I don’t see race” and “I’m colorblind” was itself very problematic and “racist” because it assumes there is something wrong with color. This is almost as good as saying “I don’t see color because color = bad so in order to not make a judgement about it I don’t see it”.
