Done. Thanks for the catch there.

I figured this would explain my position:

Like I said, there is a big difference between seeing shades of color, and using color as a means of separation.
I am apparently not being clear enough. I don't know how else to explain it. I believe I already explained that I am not color blind and I can physically see pigmentation, who doesn't? That's the not the point. The color of your skin means jack squat to me. Some of the nicest people in the world have a darker pigmentation and a lighter pigmentation, and some of the worst people in the world have a darker pigmentation and a lighter pigmentation. It's not about the color, it's about the person. That's what I mean when I say I don't see color. I don't use color as a means of separation.
Hopefully this will help clarify for you, I don't know how else to explain it.

To us, you're just jsarno.
Those aren't labels, those are accomplishments.

But that's good to know.

Okay well that does clarify things a bit. Earlier you said that you did not realize that Ron Meeks is black because you grew up in a diverse environment. So, I thought you were claiming that you literally do not notice someone's skin color.

On an unrelated note, why did you take an IQ test? I'd like to take one, but I'm not motivated enough to set it all up.

I just didn't pay attention to the fact that he was black is all.
I thought of another way to explain it...I have two bassett hounds. One is mainly black and some white. The other is mainly brown and a little white and tiny little bit black. When I see them, I don't see their color, I just see them. The color is insignificant. Does that make sense?

I actually took it on dare...I know human behavior really well, and I would predict what people would do before I did it. Friends of mine thought it was weird and I always "thought outside of the box". So we all took them, and I scored a 145. I wasn't sure how authentic it was, so I took a mensa approved test and scored a 142. Only one of the people that dared me scored over 130, and oddly enough my wife scored a 140. I'm afraid she'll take it again and score better than me, and I just can't have that!
