I don’t understand posts like this.
In some cases, you can tell that someone has to force away their perceptions of identity to accept someone (‘I don’t see colour when I see you; you’re not like those other black people.’)
But I think the point of the comic in the first place was the OP doesn’t treat people differently based on appearance.
They need to express this visually, so they drew out how all these people are the same on the inside and therefore deserve the same respect.
Come on guys, use some sense. I’m sure OP doesn’t want everyone to be a gray blob.
(i deleted the other one so don’t mind if this shows up twice)
But they’re not the same on the inside. That’s the point. From my discussions with “colorblind” white people that’s exactly how they want to see them - gray blobs. Differences need to be accepted, not ignored.
No, I mean literally on the inside, we are all made of the same things.
I’m not ~colourblind~ either, but that’s the way they see it.
I think that’s just their way of expressing that they don’t see human beings differently in a negative way. Like, they, in their eyes, don’t treat people of one aspect more negatively because ~we all bleed red~ and stuff.
But I don’t know. I’ve never spoken to someone who claims to be colourblind.
My main issue with claiming coloiurblindness is that it allows people to ignore racism and such.
'Listen here, people of colour are treated like second-class citizens still.'
'No! I'm ~colourblind~ I treat black people just fine!'
'No, I mean on a societal level, you and I are taught to treat poc like—'
'NO OK! I already told you WE ALL BLEED RED!'
and then they turn around and make Shanniqua jokes or some shit. smh.
You must be confusing actual HUMANISTS with dumb frat boys. This comic is expressing a humanist idea, and a fact. You actually, biologically, share a vast amount of DNA with ALL OTHER HUMAN BEINGS. We are so close to one another, internally, that we don’t even have species variations like other animals. Inside, REALLY inside, we are all very similar. So sorry this artist didn’t meet your expectations of how best to illustrate that.
It’s why when I say “I love all humans” I mean it with the same fervor you might say ” I love anime” or “I love cats” I’m not asking all humans to suddenly morph into faceless blobs. What I am saying is that when I meet a person I judge them on their character, their actions, the interest they hold in their passions.
I am so wrecked when I see how bitter and cynical some people are. You cannot even wrap your mind around this genuine expression of love. Stop assuming that everyone who understands biology is an idiot who doesn’t understand history or prejudice. Perhaps it is those of you who refuse to believe you have something in common with other human beings who need to reevaluate how you judge people.
Are you so attached to your superficial exterior that you cannot even step back for two seconds and realize that hair, skin, eye color, weight, height what have you.. none of it matters in the end? In the end you are a human mind. You are a human heart. You are a human passion, a human dream and human idea, a human hope, a human love and a human life. And I love you for that. Despite how much you hate me for loving you.
