You read the book Nmaginate? Good isn't it?
Conservatives are pimping Dr. King's ideology and words as if they were Magic Don Juan! It's all part of the strategy in their self-proclamed "Softer face of Conservatism" which to me just means liberalism. Who in the world do they think that they're fooling? As far as a colorblind society is concerned, there are more ways to determine a person's race and economic status by these companies and banks than you can shake a stick at. For example, your social security number, 3 digit phone exchange, your address, and your name (a good article was posted on this one here) all admitedly used by businesses and companies when determining whether to offer opportunities to people. Until the people who are running companies, corporations and the gov't condone change and change their ways this colorblind theory will continue to be just that.....a THEORY.
Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or tactics, or strategy. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as free humans in this society
