    Love it! I so agree with the idea of “not seeing race,” How can you miss it! It’s such an awesome part of our being. But, I tend to believe that many people that use those terms don’t mean any harm and really are kind people trying to be accepting.

      I think you’re right–most so called “colorblind” people don’t really intend any harm. And I suppose that’s why I want to spread the word that it can be harmful to ignore such a huge part of society and how we treat each other. We should not be blind to the color, size or shape of anyone. It reminds me of when my students are studying WWII–they always ask “How could people just let the Nazis treat the Jews that way? It seems like they were blind!” Sometimes we need to open our eyes and really see what’s happening.
