    Thank you for posting this. It really bothers me when people say this, because I agree–it represents a very head-in-the-sand approach to race relations and serves to keep the person saying it from thinking critically about race, or their role in perpetuating white supremacy. That being said–any suggestions for ways to say so, kindly but firmly, when you’re with someone who says that?

      Hi Jen! I’m not an expert, but I think these people are usually well-intentioned and more prone to enter into dialogue if they’re seen that way (and this costs me less as a white person to approach it this way than it might cost a person of color who has potentially dealt with so much more pain). So I try to start with something like, “I think you’re trying to notice how many things humans have in common to note that we should come together, and that’s a really lovely thought. I just wanted to let you know, though, that it isn’t necessary (and is actually harmful) to ignore race in conversations like these. I didn’t always know this either, but here’s an article I read about it.” The key things here are just being vulnerable with them about ignorance of certain topics and growth — which we all experience — and recognizing their good intent. I hope that’s helpful!

    Julie! What a God-send you are! Thank you for posting this and sharing the easily clicked links. I shared on my FB page…..I think EVERYONE should read “Colorblind Ideology is Racism”.
