What is the term to describe this type of ignorance?
Here is the example…
“I don’t care that Michael Sam is gay, I only care if he can be a great player as a football player.”
The term is one that ignores Michael Sam’s social relevance, and calls for his direct skill to his job as the single most importance thus erasing his identity.
I can’t think of the term.
Another example would be a white person saying, “Oh man when I hang out with you I don’t see your skin color, I don’t see a Mexican person, just who you are as a human.”
In this situation the said importance is of character while not acknowledging the persons actual being.
