Is it better to treat people of different races differently according to their race, or treat everyone the same regardless of their race?

This is a great question. So, the statement "I don't see color" or "I'm colorblind" is, in my mind, a microaggression because you're choosing to ignore a person's race, and by extension how their race will inform the way they view the world. Only white people can even say "I don't see race" because as a black woman, I don't have that luxury. I am proud of being black, it's an important part of who I am. I'm always offended when people say they don't see race because I view that as erasure of an important part of myself. Racism doesn't happen because different races exist, racism happens when one groups decides to treat another group differently based on race. So I would say, treat everyone the same but also don't shy away from a conversation where someone acknowledges their race and their experience. Nothing worse than a tone deaf white person blabbering on about how we're all the same on the inside when a poc is talking about their experience of discrimination.

I hate dignifying your question with a response but here goes. Interact with people on a personal, individual level (aka treat people like the unique humans they are!!) Don't make generalizations about a group of people based on race or anything else. Treat all people with respect and dignity and fairness.

What do you mean "treat". Just fucking be nice, listen, work hard, inspire, challenge, work together. How you "treat" is nonsense. Shouldn't even come Into play. Be a fucking good human being, and everything falls out of that....
