Why does race matter? Shouldn’t we just ignore both your race and mine and just focus on who we are as people? Race is a group affiliation we happen to be part of. We didn’t choose it. We may not want it. Why not just ignore it and treat people like people regardless of the color of their skin. I’m game if you are… I promise to treat you like a fellow human and judge you based on your actions and behavior like any rational person would do. Can you offer me the same courtesy?
