Color blind is forever culture blind

I dislike it when people say that they don’t pay attention to the color of one’s skin, or they’re essentially “color-blind”. There should be no PREJUDICE or DISCRIMINATION toward anyone on the basis of their skin tone, but race creates cultures that have their own beliefs, traditions, systems of life. Respect all cultures, races, cultural identities, and love your own background.

    My card says “I never see colors. Just people. ” I really feel that way. The person is what matters more than the color of their skin. Of course I see it but it is never the first thing i notice.
