This morning my little brother walked up to me and asked if I "was usually this black".
I had the same moment of horror the rest of you undoubtedly just did. But you know what? I was wearing all black. And I am completely sure that he would have said exactly the same thing to any person of any race without ever considering the wider implications.
Isn't that what we want? For race not to matter? When did we lose track of that and decide to be hypersensitive instead? Why do we cling to old separations instead of embracing the possibility of true equal treatment?
Personally, I want a world where children would never even consider that race might be a factor.
