The most annoying thing to ask a colorblind person is "What color is this?" while pointing to a random object. On one hand, you're an asshole, on the other hand, you know nothing about colorblindness. We are not blind to color, we can still see color. Just not the same way you do. For example, I am green-brown, brown-green, red-brown, brown-red, navy blue-purple, and lavender-pink colorblind. What this means is that I sometimes see the first color listed as the second color. So I never see pink as lavender, but I sometimes see lavender as pink, same for navy blue and purple. Yet the green-brown-red things both look like brown, and occasionally brown looks like them. Yet green does not look like red and vice versa. It is also not true all the time. If the color is really bright, like stoplights, I can tell the difference. Also if the color is really distinct I can also tell the difference. I have a hard time with cars because their colors are usually not bright or distinct enough for me to differentiate. So colorblindness is not blind to color it is blind to the differences between certain (not all) colors. So pointing to something and asking the color will probably lead to the correct answer as we may not be colorblind to that color at all. It doesn't mean we aren't colorblind.
