Anonymous asked: I don't think saying that I personally don't see race is an attempt to erase the suffering of people of color. To me, it's saying that in my mind, we are all equal, and I will treat everyone as such and fight to make the world see it similarly.
The problem is that people are not treated equally, no matter how you personally feel or act. Racism is structural, which means that people of color face discrimination and oppression from various social and political institutions. Saying that you don’t see race is saying that you don’t acknowledge the impact of these oppressions.
