While geyser's rebuttal is well written, his approach is misguided at best. Sounds like you are advocating for a "color-blindness" approach. I hate seeing anything like this published, the position that acknowledging difference is "othering" and that white people have appropriated everything so what difference does it make is horribly detrimental to furthering any sort of dialogue about the inequalities and structural violence of our society (and yes, white dreadlocks are symptomatic of these issues!).
