A Dinner Conversation
Posted by Jack Stephens on February 15, 2007
One of the most important elements of contemporary racism is the emergence of the “colorblind ideology.” The colorblind ideology asserts that color is not important and should not be the basis for social judgments. The key problem with colorblind ideology is that it is an abstract principle that does not hold true in practice (Bonilla Silva 2001).
There is also a good comment that clarifies this issue at the bottome of the page by Jonathan Korman about the author’s use of the term “racialism.”
