This is part of the problem, right here, though: it’s the very assumption that there should be no distinction at all, that we should want there to be no meaning to how we look, that we should crave an indistinct and somehow uniform culture.

I want to live in a world where it’s safe to look like anything, and where individuals can be proud and happy to be who they are as individuals. I don’t think that world will be colorblind. I think it can’t be, probably for centuries if not aeons, because there is so. much. systemic. bias, and we can’t even have deep and meaningful conversations about it most of the time.
