  1. Color Blind by Rhonda Hansome

    Thursday, April 23, 2015

    I've conflicting feelings around the phrase, Color Blind.
    When ever I see Color Blind ______ anything inserted in the blank, I feel there's possibly a self-serving trick or subterfuge involved.

    I always wonder about overt, covert or historical reasons that necessitate the modifying phrase Color Blind in any context.

    Be advised, I am clear that this short video is a commercial for Valspar.

    I'm glad it made me pause.

    I think I'll feel grateful for small blessings today and try to really enjoy the colors around me.

    1. I see color. I also enjoy drawing. I just don't necessarily draw the same conclusions as some others might.

      Love this post! And also Mindy's comment. So this video proves there are millions of white people who can actually say the sentence "I am Color Blind." without being full of sh#t... who knew? Seeing color and embracing it IS amazing and wonderful!
