Colorblind Racism

spkrchd

“The U.S. media could fulfill all of these functions [in mass media] without treating members of racial and ethnic minority groups any differently than they treat the majority.” -Racism, Sexism and the Media, Chapter 2 page 34.

Same goes for the newest term of ‘colorblind racism,’ how if one doesn’t comment on the color of another’s skin, they feel as though racism is no longer an issue. Pretending the problem doesn’t exist isn’t solving the problem.
