Colorblindness and the denial of racism perpetrates racism.In today's world, when asked if racism exists, people would simply reply “No, we have a black president right?” or “They are no longer slaves.” The people who deny racism are the same people who believe blacks commit 40 percent of violent crimes when it is actually around 20 percent.The new racism is to deny it still exists,instead people claim that we are living in a post-racial world. The idea that centuries worth of racial prejudice and discrimination no longer exist just because an individual who happens to be black is president is a flaw that we have in today's society.

"The probability of being black, unarmed, and shot by police is about 3.49 times the probability of being white, unarmed, and shot by police on average.”
