I agree with the point behind this video. But I think it misses the mark in some ways.
By simplifying the message in this way, they're also hindering it.
By saying that you don't see race, you're missing out on all the things that make us different. If you don't see religion, you're missing out on a different point of view. If you don't see age, gender, culture......you're missing out.
What you're claiming you don't see is what makes the person attractive to you. You love them because of their similarities and differences. I believe that love sees all and despite all the flaws, differences, gender, etc, you can accept someone. For who they are. Not who you want them to be. Or who they think they are.
I mean simply....
Love sees everything.
And it's all that much more for seeing. And accepting.
