After the back and forth between #Blacklivesmatter and #BacktheBlue taking over headlines and social media, Roneshia Evans seeks to offer a unconventional solution of seeking to understand and have open and honest dialogue. Pretending that race is not an issue, or claiming to be colorblind, is a false proclamation that further perpetuates the racial divide. People claim to be colorblind but are preoccupied with two colors and are picking sides. At times witty, thought provoking, and passionate, Evans suggests moving from colorblindness to color consciousness.
