THIS IS COLORBLINDNESS.
(I am pretty much completely unable to distinguish this two squares. Others, obviously, can. More reddish purples I can start noticing a difference. But it's still tricky.)
Ignoring people's race? Not colorblindness.
and people who say they're "color-blind" don't ignore race, not at all. that's code for "I don't believe structural racism exists and will waltz around in White/Cis/Able-bodied/Hetero/Thin/etc. Supremacy blissfully/willfully unaware of my privilege"
