A World in Black, White, and Gray
By Beth Beutler
  

1     If a person is color blind, he or she cannot easily see the difference between certain colors. Most often, this is inherited, or passed down, from another family member. People who are color blind learn to accept seeing the world without the ability to identify the rich colors of green, red, blue, yellow, or others.
 
2     Color blindness can occur in different forms. Some people with this disability have difficulty seeing red or green. This is the most common type of color blindness. A small fraction of the population cannot see color at all, only shades of black and white. In both cases, they will have trouble clearly seeing various shades of color.
 
3     Color blindness is a disability that we often do not think about. Perhaps this is because it is not obvious, and people who have this challenge seem to get along fine. In general, color blindness won't cause major problems. Even so, there are some hurdles to overcome.
