Why would people relinquish ( give up) the ability to see colour? How would this improve life in the community? Would this solve any problems in our society?
I believe that when they decided to give up the choice to see colour because if everyone is the same and if people are a different colour it could create the racism problem. Also in cloths, especially in younger children. For example if a boy is wearing pink and gets made fun of it could lead to bigger physiological problems later on. It would take away bulling and racism witch are big issues that a lot of people suffer from today. Yes I do think it would take away a lot of negativity but then again would take away the beautiful expression of art and individuality. “Our people made that choice, the choice to go to Sameness. Before my time, before the previous time, back and back and back. We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with difference. We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.” Chapter 12, pg. 95
