    Yes, like my friends,

    I am very colorblind when it comes to race. I have many friends that are a different race than I am. There is no excuse for discriminating and being a racial idiot or moron. Grow up people. You might need someone some day from another race to save your life. Think about it...

    I'm racially colorblind

    I am and have always been racially colorblind.

    I was raised in a family that hates playing the race card. I have many friends that are of another race and we get along very well. We never fuss or fight ever. We are just respectful of others regardless of race.

    Why be colorblind? Why not just accept

    and respect differences. It seems a little dysfunctional to say that you are blind to an aspect of reality. How do I not see what I do see? That requires a kind of psychological dissociation that is not healthy. Human beings are rather deeply disturbed by differences. It is...

    We are all born colorblind.

    I work hard to keep my four year old son from ever seeing anything other than beauty in all races and mixes. I don't think our skin color is all that defines who we become. I know too many people are mistreated and judged because of their skin color. I've seen many of my friends...

    Race has never mattered to me.

    I was brought up in a part of England

    where there were very few ethnic groups other than my own. It was the 1970's and while many parts of the UK may have had a growing ethnic diversity, it didn't happen where I lived (at least not then). The first black kid arrived at my primary school and it was a shock to so...

    Due to my experience with race

    and the many racial and ethnic psychology classes: I do not believe that anyone should be racially colorblind. Why? Because there is a difference made by social constructs in our society. Due to society making it an advantage or disadvantage according to skin color. This is sad...
