41. The point being that people who go out of their way to proclaim being colorblind...

Are probably people who ARE racist.

Sort of like that old saw of, "Some of my best friends are black".

Colorblindness is simply a way of using a standard of white privilege, cultural identification and defaulted status to people who aren't white.

In that case, a colorblind white person could never consider a non-white person as their equal.

Multiculturalism is a much better approach, as it accepts and equalizes all of our differences.
