How about “reporting in the dark”?

on August 7, 2010

I saw a commercial for a show called something like “Dating in the Dark”, I think people cannot see what the person they are meeting looks like, so the idea is to get to know someone and make judgments on them from what you hear from them, right?

I wish when stories get reported and then discussed that it could be as if we were in the dark as to the race of the people involved. So that like Martin Luther King, who wished that we’d be judged on the content of our character and not the color of our skin, then too, everything that happens or every political view held should not be turned into some sort of racial thing. As if every decision or opinion we have is based on our race, which is ridiculous of course.

To get past racism, don’t we need to stop bringing it up?

Just a thought.
