See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical

In Partnership with NASW-NV

See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical

More than 50 years after Dr. King's speech, individuals continue to use his words to justify their claim of being racially colorblind. Racial colorblindness is modern-day racism and denies the racial disparities that continue to exist in various systems, including healthcare, education, and the criminal justice system. In the helping profession, not only is it unrealistic to be racially colorblind, it is dangerous and does more harm than good. If you don't see my color, you can't see me. And if you can't see me how can you empathize with my racial experiences, accept my whole being and validate my perspectives?
