Make a Conscious, Intentional Choice to See Color
In order to change our current color blindness into cultural sightedness we must learn how to diagnose, discuss, disrupt our traditional thinking patterns about race to enable healing and empowerment for change. Without the conscious, intentional choice to see color we limit our creativity, connectivity and community expression. So what causes us to keep our blinders on in today's environment?

They address the blinders that are inherent when someone says, "I don't see color": anxiety and uncertainty; power; EGOcentrism; ignorance; and immaturity.
