Colorblind

They are always talking about how they can ideally get rid of certain disease and things by manipulating genetics. There is one movie where they manipulated us into a type of super race, which is what many are afraid of when it comes to genetic engineering. Granted genetic engineering at this point is trying to get the genetics you have in the best form, but it is never sure. But I do have to wonder, they can reduce the risk of serious diseases, and for families with prevalent histories of it, it is extremely appealing. But there are also some that won’t kill you, but they’re certainly annoying. One example of that is color blindness. Being colorblind won’t kill you by any means, and there are different types. You can definitely learn to live with it. But if you don’t have to and you can genetically alter your body to not suffer from colorblindness, would it be such a bad thing to do?
