The Colorblind Perspective

It is important to apply the color-blind perspective in gender relations to remove the bias to any decision made in institutions. Many organizations have come in to eradicate the race and emphasis the value of diversity to every region. Color blind is difficult to cope with and maintain even between two people but color-blind people are able to succeed at an organization depending on how the organization is diverse. It is of great importance to use multicultural approach so that people may understand each other without having bias. Multicultural approach helps even in understanding where the discrimination has occurred because inequalities are very difficult to hide a person with the knowledge (Gallagher, 2003).

Color-blind perspective should be applied in order to meet the needs of the entire individual since color-blind people can do other normal things. These people are able to see and cannot be differentiated until they start reading names of colors. Teachers should understand these learners and make copies of handouts with high black or white contrast and not a colored paper. Color-blindness should not be an issue today because there are rights which no one should violate. Modern racism is seen to be rare because even government is trying to target the color-blind individuals (Brown et al, 2012).

Conclusively, white people who are free from the challenges and disadvantage of color-blindness are able to ignore racism. Color-blindness should be well advocated because it creates a society which denies their negative racial experiences and it can include their own ideas which may cost them. This perspective should be applied in classroom so that the teachers and other students can treat all the learners without favors but taking keen concern on those with special needs including color-blind learners. These are people with special cases and should be treated in way that they can feel they are comfortable.
