MINI-THREAD: The right's #ColorBlindSociety talking point. Please RT widely if you agree.

After Trump's racist tweets, I hear it a lot on the right. So now instead of recognizing that people have different color skin we want to be blind to it, i.e. ignore race all together?
That's an ostrich-hiding-head-in-the-sand move. It's benevolent on the surface, masking people's #racism & giving it legs. I am sure Trump will pick up this verbage as well because that's a good distraction point. Here's why it's really bad for any #democracy, even a mature one.
As a society, we don't need to be blind to race. We must recognize & validate people's identities & experiences. We need to realize that we are all different. But we are all EQUAL. Compassion and respect of equality must drive our relationships & conversations, not #RaceBlindness
