The Specter of Color

The specter of color is apparent even when it goes unmentioned,
and it is all too often the unseen force that influences public policy as well as private relationships.
There is nothing more remarkable than the ingenuity that the various demarcations of the color line reflect.
If only the same creative energy could be used to eradicate the color line;
 then its days would indeed be numbered.
John Hope Franklin, 1993
