A colorblind society.
Definition of Colorblindness: Colorblindness is the inability to see certain colors in the usual way.
-National Library of Medicine
A lot of the time I hear people within society use the phrase that the United States is a “colorblind society.” If by the definition of colorblindness that it is the inability to see colors in the usual way, then we would only be able to see two colors at the very least. If one was able to see only two colors (i.e. black and white), that would create two categories or social groups.
With the amount of diversity in the United States as we are known as The Country of Immigrants.
As we are to be a colorblind society, how come is it then that the white social group (i.e. Anglos, Caucasians, Europeans, etc.), some but not all, tend to segregate from the minority black social group (i.e. African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, etc.). in this ideological statement.
This statement cannot be said as we are not a true colorblind society.
My thoughts I would like to share with y’all.
