This weeks lectures and readings were very interesting to read about. What caught my attention the most was the idea of living in color blind lifestyle. I feel that colorblindness is a great way to think about life and the people living it and I understand that the intentions are always meant to be from a positive point of view, but it is just not something that is possible. As human beings we all naturally make subconscious pre judgments about people. It is not possible to look at someone and not notice the color of their skin as well judge other features. When I hear people say they live a colorblind lifestyle, personally it almost makes me feel that one so focused on trying not to think about their race, that you actually are thinking about it more than you should be. Instead people should just have the mindset of treating everyone equally and grow an interest in the others culture, lifestyles and experiences in which they have been through in life. Just like in the Stephen Colbert clip, he made the joke that he is colorblind and just “sees everyone as white.” This hit the spot for me, because if you lived a colorblind lifestyle then it seems like you would just view everyone as the same person with same background, when that is the farthest thing from the truth as we have learn this semester. All people and races are different and beautiful in their own way, they have all had their experiences, and some have had way more difficulties in life than others and that should be known. I understand that living a colorblind society is meant to be a peaceful and racial avoiding mindset, but by focusing on everyone being the same, I feel that it is can be disrespectful to certain cultures, because we are not all the same. We should all be treated the same, and have the same opportunities and rights, but we need to respect peoples cultures and grow from their experiences.
