I think that the real reason for this excessive zeal for color blindness (and gender, preference, religious, age, and whatever else blindness) is that it's part of the fundamental liberal confusion. Equality of result, not of opportunity. We are not of nature, with our various differences, rewarded according to a higher moral authority by some measure that we must strive to discover, but rather above nature, all equally deserving of identical outcomes. It's the pablum (spelling?) of the masses, the false ideal of a perfect society. It's communism, socialism, liberalism (in the current abuse of the word). It's tyranny.
It must be defeated, over and over again.
"It's communism, socialism, liberalism (in the current abuse of the word). It's tyranny." I don't think that has anything to do with this issue. It's an empirical question. Can you find a genetic marker for race? Ie, is there some gene that darkly complected people carry in common which is causally responsible for the traits that people associate with darkly complected people?
