As a follow-up that... Isn't basically all bigotry/racism/separatism/tribalism pretty much a direct result of people not willing to be "category blind" in the first place?

So the solution to the problem of people not being "category blind"... is to *not* be "category blind"?

Brilliant stuff, mate.


Racism, for example, can be ideological (i.e. the belief that some "races" are better than others, or more deserving of privileges) or institutional (i.e. a system of inequality by race). Colorblindness is in fact opposed to ideological racism, which is why I believe in colorblindness as an ideal. But it can reproduce institutional racial inequality, because it tries to ignore how race structures inequality when it clearly does so. So for me, colorblind or category-blind societies are the ideal--something to work for. But, sadly, not the reality. Not even close.

Again, I'm speaking generally here. Not about techno. Frankly, I doubt techno has much of a racism problem, considering its roots. I think it's more plausible that techno has a sexism problem, but as I said above, I don't think it's the main reason why women become DJs/producers in small numbers than men. Could be wrong here, and I'd love to hear some female input to this conversation, but my suspicion is it's more a case of differing levels of interest in pursuing a career or serious hobby in this specific music style.
