Summary
"How do blind people understand race? To many, the answer seems obvious: they don't. This assumption has led to the emergence of colorblindness - that law and public policy can replicate the blind community's apparent racial harmony by not 'seeing' or acknowledging race. This idea has radically reshaped post-civil rights race discussions. The findings in Blinded by Sight are startling: blind people understand race visually and it shapes their everyday lives - just like anyone else's. By debunking this illusory racial utopia, Obasogie provides a new vision for justice in law and society"--Unedited summary from book cover
