23 Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. 26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise (Biblehub.com, 1973).
The problem here echoes towards a structural summitry to colorblind racism. Colorblind racism declares that racism does not exist because at base, we are all human, and have laws that recognize us qua our humanity. Of course, this does not come close to reality as it is, because while every human born in the United States may be issued a social security number, the systems (IE school, police, jobs and so on) do not recognize this equality in such a way that equates to equal access to opportunity. So, while there is a legalistic recognition of equality, there is not a really existing equality. Colorblind racism is no only blind to racism, but to race in so far as it socially, politically and economically used to regulate opportunity.
