Color obsession/obliviousness

People here have a thing for race. Or color, would be more accurate.
When someone talks about a person, it is always added what color this person has.
Like "my white classmate" or "a black guy I work with".

It's like racism is so put into everyone's head that it is not a choice to think differently.
It's just "natural" for everyone that the whites eat at the restaurants and that the blacks serve them.
Noone here seems to question the absurdity in the concept that "one color" walks this street while "another color" takes another one.

Obsession at the one hand. Obliviousness on the other.
