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
Next time you hear or see #ColorBlindSociety nonsense, pls shut it down. Reiterate that we value people as they are. We cherish the diversity this society is built on. We must be compassionate to each other and recognize that we are all here EQUALLY to pursue happiness. Pls RT.
