A Colorblind World is Still a Blind One

I don't have any great fascination with living in a colorblind world. As I've often said if the world were colorblind then a colored girl like me might be invisible.

There is still so much work to do - I hope people realize that.

Great post on Tracey's blog too about a comment from a model agency made about how difficult it is to find little girls like The Obama's children.

I hope everyone who sees this sends a message to the New York post how unacceptable it is.

Thanks for posting.

I read this earlier and tried to think of something to say, but I was so disturbed by this "cartoon" that I couldn't come up with anything. It seriously made me nauseous. I'm still speechless but had to use some words to say I'm speechless. I would like to find out how to write or E-mail the paper to express my disgust. Harmony

Oh they know "we" are disgusted by it...they just don't give a *#%! by what "we" feel---that's the whole point they're making. I say folks should stop buying The New York Post---> stimulate that and see what happens!
