Q: Are some people so eager to be seen as politically "color blind" that they become ridiculously pedantic when they hear black people describe an experience with racism?

Muhammad Rasheed - Yes, they do and it’s a performance with the intention of downplaying or even debunking the concept of “racism” in favor of the white dominant identity group.

In practice, it’s a weaponized form of gaslighting, where whites target Black people who express their experiences and nitpick the story to find ways to cast doubt upon its authenticity (see comment section under this linked Quora post for examples) . These attempts are clumsy—while often hidden within an over-wordy air of high education—with the racist attackers giving the impression that they either don’t understand simile, metaphor or clever turns of phrase that make a story more interesting in the telling themselves, or they somehow believe black people aren’t allowed to use such literary/storytelling tools.
