“We’re all just human!”

Today’s video came out of a post a friend of mine put up on Facebook that got a billion likes from everyone, but also got me thinking about how saying we need to forget about race and sexuality and focus on humanity is a super problematic thing to do, and steeped in privilege. He’s a good guy, and I know his heart’s in the right place, but that doesn’t always count for as much as we’d hope. Mistakes get made, and I’m no stranger to that. Colourblind ideology is problematic for a lot of reasons that I get into today. Let me know what you think in the comments, especially if I trip up and pile problems on problems.
