Colour-blindness: a way to sound like you’re forward thinking and attempting to break down the barriers of racism. What really happens is you simply become ignorant of the racial profiling, not that racial profiling stops.

No, this is entirely the opposite. This is a step towards stop and ask to account no longer being demonstrably and statistically racist, instead just being racist without any accountability for the action taken. That’s a step in the wrong direction, it’s a step to making the police forces less accountable for their actions. It’s a step towards racism in the UK having even less awareness and being even less spoken about.
