Looking good; I think it's a mainspace-ready stub. :P FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ﹐ Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 17:11, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

You talking as if calling races bullshit and denying racism were the same thing.--Arisboch (talk) 21:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Refusing to acknowledge race has racist effects, however anti-racist in intent. That includes looking at someone and professing to not even understand the question "what is this person's race?" <3 CSapphire bullets of pure love 22:08, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Buying into that pseudoscientific bullshit is necessary to combat racism??? What the shit fuck is that???--Arisboch (talk) 22:16, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
What pseudoscientific bullshit specifically? WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:33, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
The notion of race in general. It doesn't mean denying racism, it's seeing racism as a even more idiotic.--Arisboch (talk) 22:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Uh huh, and when you say "the notion of race in general", what you actually mean is the (pseudo)scientific theory of races as distinct and meaningful taxonomic groups within humans, as if this is all that's ever been said on the subject of race.

I found the Jez piece while looking for incidents in which fancy digital cameras' facial recognition software failed to recognize non-white faces (most egregiously, a camera made by a Korean company, albeit for the U.S. market, that didn't identify a South Asian person as human). I couldn't find anything, but it might be interesting to add. <3 CSapphire bullets of pure love 22:06, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't really see the relevance here. You're talking about how photography & related technology tends to treat caucasian as the default skin colour. This article is about people (mostly white liberals) who use the principle of racial equality to dismiss people's racial identity & related experiences as unimportant. Both are examples of white privilege but the connection between them is tenuous at best. WẽãšẽĩõĩďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:59, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
