When two people fall in love they tend to notice everything about the other person. The colour of their eyes, hair, shape of their face, the way the person moves, tone of voice. Little things matter as sense are heightened.
You love everything thing about them.. right?
Then why is it that in some 'mixed relationships', people say things like..I don't see colour?... ( whilst wearing perfectly colour coordinated clothing)
That's a little like saying, I don't see gender, or I don't see all the things that attracted me to you in the first place.
Is it paranoia?.. denial?.. or perhaps some kind of un-addressed underlying issue with regards to 'race and racism'.
Is it the equivalent of saying I'm not racist?.
Isn't it more 'racist' to attempt to wipe out, or erase visual ethnic difference?
At best it's a silly statement, at worst perhaps a little offensive.
There's nothing wrong in seeing what is clearly there to see
It's the meaning that you infer to what you see.. that may or may not be questionable
They say love is blind.. is it?
Love isn't colour-blind..but it can get to the heart of the matter.. it is the heart of the matter
Difference is okay.. it's okay to notice difference
Then again love of itself is a state of being..
it's we who give meaning to it
