Reply to "The FALLACY of the "COLORBLIND": False Theory & Bad Practice"

I reject Conservative America's plea for and/or offer of a colorblind society as patently disingenuous. This is merely its attempt to convince its continuing victims (or maybe, itself) that it no longer plan to harm them, while leaving in place the institutions that its victimization created.

But I must say that its strategy and tactics are brilliant: adopt the name of civil rights, adopt to language of civil rights activists (selectively), frame the question and control the debate.

Currently, the single most threatening organization to civil rights, the American Civil Rights Institute, (like something out of a Orwell novel) actually has civil rights in its title. Conservative America knows and quotes MLK in much the same manner as satan quoted the Bible during the temptations of Christ; selectively and out of context. And, Conservative America's saying to Black folk, "We want a Colorblind society, don't you," is alot like a thief asking a resisting victim whether the victim believes that violence is wrong.

We can never have a discussion of a colorblind society until the institutions created by color-bias are addressed.
