Spent the day marching in solidarity, and thinking about this:
We cannot dismiss the frustrations and actualities of the oppressed. Be it discrimination based on race, gender, sexuality, physical ability, mental ability, weight, or height. Being dismissive only furthers oppression. In retrospect to this event, stating that you “do not see race or color” perpetuates white-privilege and is dismissive to our differences, furthering the illusion of “sameness”. Instead we must recognize these differences and understand where our own individual responsibilities and accountabilities lie.
