teaching your child to be colorblind is wrong
being colorblind yourself is wrong because it implies that here is something wrong and undesirable about color, that it makes you uncomfortable and that people of color are somehow obligated to pretend that they are racially the same as white people when in fact nothing could be more untrue.
i am a young adult and for victoria foyt to attest that she hopes my generation views race in a unique manner—that is, a manner according to her and an extension of her which is her bullshit book and yet again the color fucking blind manner which is nothing unique and nothing new—is frankly insulting. it is insulting to my experience as a woman of color and the racism, scrutiny and otherization i have had to withstand my whole life long.
her book is nothing revolutionary, it is nothing new. it once again has a white heroine like any other book in mainstream fiction. it employs vile stereotypes about black people and particularly black men, establishing the white woman as the victim and the black man as her sexualized oppressor. she uses once again the narrative that led to black men dying, being abused and dehumanized for perceived offenses against white women. once again the white woman victim complex that i cannot fucking stand. and yet this woman still has the gall to insist that she’s not racist, she’s colorblind"
