This is a great comeback for all of that “I don’t see race.” BS
First of all, nobody created a social construct for race in and of itself. Race is just race. White people, living in the past and in present day, may have “created” a social construct for racism against any number of minority groups of color or creed, but they did not create race itself. Verbiage is important when making a cogent argument.
And the problem isn’t who created rac(e)ism anyway, the problem with the “I don’t see your race” dodge is that it is insulting to ignore the race of another and thereby ignore any particular plight they may have as a result of their race’s history. It’s an extremely ignorant to say, “I don’t see your race,” despite the best intentions of those who generally espouse that particular axiomatic dodge.
TL;DR: Deep down we are all the same creatures, but our histories have a wide divide, and choosing to ignore race is potentially choosing to ignore or simply not acknowledge the individual racial history of a person, which is profound error.

The sense of entitled, sadistic, “moral disengagement” by the police is truly disheartening. How can they build trust in a community they are using for their role-playing FPS fantasies?
