I don’t want people to be blind to my color. Instead, I want them to see me in my entirety, including the fact that I am a Biracial Black woman, and I want them to actively embrace these parts that make me whole. I believe most people have good intentions in advocating for colorblindness, but colorblind ideology often results in marginalizing those pieces of me that I happen to value highly.
