Our Family Wedding with America Ferrera, Forest Whitaker, Taye Diggs, Regina King

I'm not one to give my opinion on anything I haven't seen yet, so this is not to comment on the movie itself, but in the trailer America Ferrera said something that I'd like to appeal to interracial couples to stop saying and that is any variation of the phrase, "I don't see color".
To that end I'd like to leave you with a  1995 quote from Harlon L. Dalton;

"I really don't think of you as Black."...
The erasure of my Blackness is meant to be a compliment, but I am not flattered.
 For when I am e-raced, I am denied an identity that is meaningful to me
and am separated from people who are my flesh and blood."

Our Family Wedding opens 3-12-10
