An anti-discrimination poster in Admiralty MTR station in en:Hong Kong targetting Chinese-speaking audience. The en:bilingual en:slogans in Cantonese and English convey two different messages. A literal translation for the Cantonese slogan reads:

Less identification by colour.
More understanding.
Building a Hong Kong of racial harmony

There is a en:play on words with "色" and "識", which are en:homophones in Cantonese.
