Colorblind
Javone Hilliard

Planet earth, somebody please take a look at this place, we in war but we spend time worrying about our race, our skin tone our height or even about our weight, this world is filled with crazy people so how the hell are we safe.

If we were colorblind would there be a black or a white? Would Blacks have had to fight for their rights? Would we hurt each other and make each other cry? Did Martin Luther King really have to die? See, maybe it would have been more civil with less crimes, if only we were colorblind.

If we were colorblind would there be a black or a white? Would rainbows describe lesbians, gays, or dykes? See, this ain’t even right, how color controls and has a big part in our life.

If we were colorblind would there be a black or a white? Would there be a problem with who we choose to like or date? It certainly would change the way we operate. Would there be stereotypes involving color? Since we stereotype because of our outlook, think about it, would people still say “white trash”? Would Blacks still lead in being the lower class?  I truly doubt that it would be the same, but at least when it comes to color we would all be equal and remain. Think about it, there are thousands of what ifs.

What if we were……………
colorblind?
