Identifying race

I've really dithered about posting this as it's going to make me sound like a lunatic, but I can't believe that I'm the only person like this.

I often don't see what race a person is by looking at them. It's happened from time to time over the years with new friends or admired celebrities, but over the last ten days two of my colleagues have talked about their experiences as black people, and it's the first time I've consciously noticed that they are. I ended up looking like a complete tool today because of it, though that's the least of anyone's problems right now.

I don't mean to be goady or upset anyone with this post, but can I really be the only person like this?
