Today's 'Quote of the Day' comes from an essay that was written by Alyssa Rosenberg for ThinkProgress website. Here essay centers around NBC's new show 'Deception' which stars actress Meagan Good. The essay she wrote was entitled, "NBC's 'Deception,' And Why Colorblindness Is Not Progressive."
Here is the quote:
Colorblindness is a form of privilege, of refusing to connect with people by hearing about their experiences, and of refusing to benefit by understanding the role race plays in your own. And in terms of enriching the stories you tell, it's also a tactic that may keep you safe from causing offense, but at the cost of embracing a drab and narrow spectrum for your characters to live in.
