Colorblindness

An ideology that promotes the practice of not noticing or regarding someone’s race and/or racial characteristics. From Wikipedia: “Proponents of ‘color-blind’ ideology believe that treating people equally inherently leads to a more equal society and/or that racism and race privilege no longer exercise the power they once did. Opponents of ‘color-blindness’ believe that racism and white privilege remain defining features of American society and that ‘color-blindness’ simply allows whites to ignore the disadvantages of the non-white population.”
