This paper is a review of the topic "Is the Emphasis on a Color-Blind Society an Answer to Racism and Inequality." The two that are presenting this topic for discussion are Emily Ernst, and Alysia Berns. The format for this review paper is a quick summary of the yes and the no side, and then for the conclusion I will give my own opinion in a short and sweet paragraph.
Ward Connerly is on the side of supporting this idea. His overall idea is that America needs to become colorblind to race, he said on page 81 that when "Julia Roberts and Benjamin Bratt started to date that no one really cared" (Connerly). So if love has become colorblind then why can't it fulfill the promise that it made so long ago with equal justice before the law and for the United States as a nation to renounce racial classifications? Something that he also tired to implement was the Racial Privacy Initiative (RPI). This would take away all those racial classifications that you have to check off on a packet or application. He also says that this is a start to a nation becoming one, and that it will free us from the identification politics and make us not feel so "boxed in."
