Noah makes a valid point that until all the effects of pass racism are corrected instilling a colorblind society doesn't fix anything. If the idea is fully embraced and implemented maybe future acts of racism may go away (I doubt it) but it does not address the past.
For instance if a colorblind society came about next year, would it provide for the release of all those brothers and sister wrongly convicted and sent to prison based on their race.
Would it go back and issue mortgages to black applicants turned down because they were black.
Would it allow for the higher than normal interest rates that blacks were charged for the same things that whites brought but paided a lower interest rate because they were white returned.
The idea of a colorblind society is a noble one and one that I support. But before we have a colorblind society lets make sure that the playing field is truly equal. Its not enough to say that from now on everything is going to be good, its also important to go back where possible and correct those situations where racism clearly was the factor in deciding issues.
