> His response, peppered with pride, was that he was “color-blind” when it came to entrepreneurs. He said that he didn’t care what gender or color someone was, and that he didn’t care if a founder just “happened to be Black.” He was completely unaware of how clueless and harmful this notion is.
I think this is the only truly enlightened approach, anything else is actually discrimination. Everyone should be “color-blind” and “gender-blind” — this is the ideal we should all be striving for. The reason some groups were discriminated against in the past doesn’t mean we should discriminate against opposite groups to make things even somehow now — no, we should eliminate the inequality.
