Review:

"Blinded By Sight is a lucidly and crisply written exploration of how blind and sighted individuals understand race as a visual phenomenon, and how those understandings are reflected within society. This masterful work is sure to make an enormous contribution, and to provoke debate." - Carroll Seron, Department Chair and Professor, University of California, Irvine "Blinded by Sight is a completely fresh, eye-opening perspective on the social construction of race. By showing that blind people understand race visually, Obasogie illuminates how everyone learns to 'see' race, powerfully debunking two dominant racial dogmas - that race is visually obvious and our laws should be colorblind. His fascinating study and path breaking analysis make an innovative contribution." - Dorothy Roberts, author of Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-first Century "This brilliant book reveals race as a central way that we understand our society and ourselves. Obasogie's sightless subjects 'see' race as our deep and continuing social need to classify and rank. Blinded by Sight teaches us that we can reimagine race not as a disability or an advantage but as a flexible form of human variation. A wonderfully lucid book, highly recommended!" - Howard Winant, University of California, Santa Barbara "'I don't see race' is the all-too-cavalier refrain of our supposedly post-racial world. In this thought-provoking book, Obasogie reveals how deeply we all - blind people included - see race. Color's true significance is here revealed as an elaborate system of cognitive markers guiding the production of racial knowledge, filtering our priorities, preferences, and ultimately our politics." - Patricia J. Williams, Columbia University School of Law

From the Publisher:

Colorblindness has become an integral part of the national conversation on race in America. Given the assumptions behind this influential metaphor - that being blind to race will lead to racial equality - it's curious that, until now, we have not considered if or how the blind "see" race. Most sighted people assume that the answer is obvious: they don't, and are therefore incapable of racial bias - an example that the sighted community should presumably follow. In Blinded by Sight,Osagie K. Obasogie shares a startling observation made during discussions with people from all walks of life who have been blind since birth: even the blind aren't colorblind - blind people understand race visually, just like everyone else. Ask a blind person what race is, and they will more than likely refer to visual cues such as skin color. Obasogie finds that, because blind people think about race visually, they orient their lives around these understandings in terms of who they are friends with, who they date, and much more. In Blinded by Sight, Obasogie argues that rather than being visually obvious, both blind and sighted people are socialized to see race in particular ways, even to a point where blind people "see" race. So what does this mean for how we live and the laws that govern our society? Obasogie delves into these questions and uncovers how color blindness in law, public policy, and culture will not lead us to any imagined racial utopia.
