This piece was inspired by the quote, “The different shades of colours represent cultural diversity,” by Lailah Gifty Akita. So often people say or imply that they are “colorblind” not understanding how that sounds to the person they’re saying it to. This world is unbelievably diverse and the answer to our problems isn’t the erasure of our differences; it’s the acknowledgement and respect of them.
