Logos

Okri appeals to logos when he presents clear argumentation for why color-blindness is not a productive approach to combating racism: 

History is not colour-blind. Examine the history of slavery and of colonialism and of genocide. Education is not colour-blind. Otherwise the objective facts of what a people have done and what has been done to a people would be as much part of the curriculum as the death of Socrates, the plays of Shakespeare, and basic mathematics. Culture is not colour-blind. Otherwise the history of art would include the rock sculpture of Zimbabwe, the radical interventions of David Hammons, and the paintings of Ben Enwonwu (ll. 47-53).

In this example, Okri argues from examples to show that history, education, and culture are not color-blind, as they often exclude the black experience and present a nearly all-white perspective. Okri argues that racism and colonialism are rarely discussed in history classes, and black artists are not as celebrated as white ones.
