What kind of person would be fine with the following.... [View all]

- Some black and brown families move into their previously all-white neighborhood.

- A black or brown woman gets hired to replace their former boss who was a white guy.

- Their daughter starts dating or even considers marrying a standard looking black or brown fellow.

- A media icon gets re-visioned from a white character to a black or brown character. (Say hi to your new Haitian Spider-Man)

- Their church welcomes the first black and brown families as new members.

- Any other instance where a white identity is no longer the standard or the default and a non-white identity is given an equal or higher footing.

Would a "colorblind" person be fine with those things, or would a person who believes in Multiculturalism welcome them?
