The Bird & The Blind Man (an aphorism)

A bird cannot argue with a blind man about what color the sky is.

No matter how hard the bird tries to describe the sky and what it looks like the blind man simply is incapable of truly conceiving what the color “blue” is or what the puffy whiteness of clouds are

If the blind man has closed his ears to the birds song the sky will be forever dark for him

Racism, bigotry and bias blinds
