One of the strangest things that’s happened in my generation is this need to say “We’re all the same!” through being colorblind, not using labels, etc. as if being different was the problem. I think it’s time to admit that sometimes people don’t have the same experiences. Depending on your ethnicity, class, religion, gender, culture, etc. you’re going to have a different experience from someone who’s different in any of them.
And that’s fine.
As long as you don’t put the differences down (providing that they don’t oppress another group) then it’s okay to acknowledge it. It’s okay to say you’re a black person. Trying to achieve “universalism” may not work out so it’s better to know and accept the differences. Besides, it makes for interesting stories and people need to be out of their familiarity zones.
