Color Blindness

Color blindness is a part of the problem

Trying to say we’ve moved past it

Denies your history

It denies the issue


Good intentions won’t change the world

Ignoring reality does not provide equality

What is written on paper doesn’t always manifest in practice

Yes color blindness is part of the problem


The complexity of society

The actuality of your lived experience

The miracle of your humanity

Should not be glossed over with color blindness


So I see your color and I see your face

I see your history, your heritage and our failures

I celebrate our differences and rejoice in our connections

May your freedoms and liberties finally be honored


What I can do is probably not much

But I will do what I can, I will stand for justice

I will not deny the position I was born in to

What can I do except that which I can?
