I have always been bothered by niave, though well-meaning, people who say we should not see a persons color. I don't believe the goal is to make a persons skin color or heritage disappear, but to embrace it, acknowlede it, and appreciate it, thereby coming to understand the whole person, not just the parts we decide are acceptable.

A rainbow wouldn’t be as beautiful
if all the colors were the same
I’m certain I wouldn’t want to live
in a world where
we’re all called
by the same name

How boring the forest would be
if as far as the eye could see
there were only one kind of tree

The beauty of the world
you see
is in the difference

The contrast of the summer’s colors
for instance
and the sound of the birds
Robins, Sparrows, even the crows
all singing in the distance

Black IS beautiful
but so is red, and yellow, and white
You see
we were NEVER meant
to be just alike!

When we, as a human race
learn to look at each other
with the innocence of a child
I think, for once
we will make GOD smile!

"A Colorblind World" is a poem of excellent message and it is very inspiring towards humanity and fraternity. It made me think and consider my social affairs. I liked it.

I understood the author's view, but I must comment:

"It is a very sensitive subject. The title itself has a negative point. But what strikes most is the summary, which opens the doors to blind the reader's way to read. I think that if the author could consider a revision for this poem, - including the title, - we could enjoy its fulness without the existing barrage for its flowing into the SEAS of our imagination."

My opinion is given based on my respect to Authors, and there is no other intention in its contents, but cooperate together for the improvement of understanding to fulfill the Mission of Love.
