I’ve decided to try to find a solution to this stupid race “problem” of color labelling people as if we’re some kind of decorative accessory. Since it would be horrifying to see someone who was really white or black like paper and ink (and they’re not colors, anyway), I thought I would try to ID skin tones like they do at the paint shop.
I found an app that uses your iPad camera to photograph anything to determine its color in a number of the systems that are offered. You aim at a part of you that stays about the same tone all year (no tanning) — I used the inside of my wrist.
My result is below. So please don’t call me white. I am peach-orange or, as I prefer, #FABC99.
