ok but I want to know what Sam thought of Mercedes’ song and what she was trying to say
cuz it’s called Colorblind, and she’s just got done saying it shouldn’t matter that he’s white
but really it’s about how a world without color is a world without brightness and beauty and life… a world without color is grey (and without him her world is grey?)
it’s about how awful being colorblind is*, not how color isn’t important
so I guess one thing about Sam is he’s really emotionally savvy** so I mean probably he does get it
but to me it seems to note that this storyline isn’t over… this issue will come up again, because color is important— to who they are and how they see the world
*in an emotional, metaphorical sense, not extrapolating this to how physically colorblind people see the world.
**(even if not about other things like *ahem* racism)
The song has absolutely nothing to do with race at all. It’s personal, it’s about how she feels when he is not with her. Have you ever broken up with someone and your world just feels like crap? You feel broken and everything hurts… That’s what this song is about. (but I think you got that) And it is very poetic, so I can see why your analyzing it.
They may bring race up again, but i didn’t get that from this song, at all.
