    It seemed like I was being disagreeable.  What I meant by color-neutral is that they see the difference, but choose to look at the person rather than the pigment.  As a result they have been exposed to many of the cultural differences as well as common experience that make up one race - the human race.

      My daughter met a little white girl at the family's home for the first time when they were both three. My daughter is African American with a fair complexion.

      When she accompanied the little girl to the toy room, I heard the little girl ask, "Are you black or white?" My daughter hesitated for a moment. My mind raced because I didn't know that she would know the answer. We had never discussed race in our house and our family is a rainbow. My daughter said, "I'm black." They continued to the toy room and  have been friends for nineteen years.

      You're right. They see it, but it doesn't matter.
