Do not say this to me ever.
You don’t care what I race,nationality gender I am?
It shapes who I am. It has shaped my experiences and therefore how I see the world. My race nor my nationality can not be seperated from the person I am.
To say you are “color blind” or don’t care or notice isn’t just disingenous, it is problematic. You aren’t acknowledging me.
I am Lesli. I am Black/mixed. I am Jamaican. I am a Woman. I am a geek. I am bisexual. I am a Potterhead. I am a feminist.
And I am these things equally.
Do not ignore that because it makes you uncomfortable.
