Can we stop pretending that white people have no color and they're unique from the rest of the world?

We are all different races linked by a common factor - humanity.

@Katwoman Thanks for BA 🌹
@Katwoman thank you for posting the BA 🤗

I remember listening to my youngest sister having a discussion with a white friend over a box of crayons.
(they were about six)

He: You’re black, I’m white. It’s simple.
She: It’s wrong. Is my skin the same color as this black crayon ?
He: Well, no.
She: And is your skin the same color as the white crayon ?
He: No, but it is the same color as the "flesh" crayon.
She: Mine isn’t. Don’t I have flesh, too ?
He: Yes, but…
She: Not so simple, is it ?
@bijouxbroussard Nice! Kids understand it so much better than adults.

@bijouxbroussard She had passed him up already.
As we come together to remember MLK today. Let’s join hands and remember his great message..” let it be the Color of a man’s skin that defines him, not his character”

White isn't a color, and neither is black. But what we call black in people is actually brown and what we call white is actually such a weird pink-ish color it's hard to describe any better than that.

That is pute ignorant nonsense. Both are an extreme combination of all the primary colors. Both are absent chrome but are hardly not absent if color

@sexyjigsaw I'm a colored person as much as anyone else. I am certainly not opaque
@Slade What frequency do black and white have in the visible light spectrum then?

@badminton what a gorgeous bunch! 😊

who ever tried claiming that white people are unique? We make up the majority on this planet i believe compared to other races. That is not unique.
What is unique though is how singling out white people is the only form of racism that is actively supported and encouraged

@sexyjigsaw thanks for the apology. it was not needed as you already admitted i never said it. I think you are a nice person yourself and its good having a convo on this topic where it has not turned into a back and forth insult type thing, so thanks for that
@Torsten you're welcome and I thann you the same bro 🙂
Who says you can't find rational, kind people on the internet 😪

When I was a kid, it was common to refer to Blacks as "Colored People" (Hence the organization whose initials are NAACP.)

Then the cultural mood shifted, and it was pointed out that all people (except albinos) have skin coloration, and that it was arrogant for whites to talk as if some people had color and others did not. So the term "Black" became favored.

Still later on, the term "People of Color" came into popular usage ( not just for Blacks of course, but definitely not for Whites). It seemed to me that we had gone full circle.

The Black power ranger?
@CoconutMilk what it is
@Fuzzle how dare you Felicia at me 😒
There is nothing unique about the color of ones skin but it is still part of a power hierarchy depending on where you are from.
