    If one thinks about it, very few people in life are colour-blind.

    Most in the world have some attachment to their own race, even if only a few are genuinuely racist.

    It's like a bell curve/standard normal distribution. In the extreme parts of z, you get the colour-blind and racists, but in the middle section you get most people in the world, who have race loyalty and race attachment. :yep:

    I know what you mean. Humans are tribal creatures, and we create belonging for ourselves by indentifying ourselves with similiar looking creatres. I know things have come a long way in terms of understanding and overriding our instinctual longings, but considering most societies still support a dominant 'race' suggests we are simply living to our roots. There isn't anything wrong with thinking of people in terms of race, because it's in-built. I think it's funny when some people say "I don't see someone for the colour of their skin" - that's all well and good, but it's willful seeing, realistically. We can grow used to the presence of other races, but we'd have to re-write our DNA to rid ourselves of the habit of defrentiation.
