You want to know where America is headed, just read this story about a 14-year old Swedish girl suing a company over the name of a paint color.
As reported in Sweden’s The Local:
The 14-year old discovered the paint sold by Universal Color and Chemicals at school. She said that it was “sick” that the term ‘skin-colour’ was used to describe beige.
“By renaming beige to skin colour they show that there is a whiteness norm in society,” Thyra,14, told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
She added; “It is completely sick that they just rename beige to skin colour when black and brown are also that.”
An Equality Ombudsman?! The world has a disease and it’s spreading.
If I make paint, I should be able to call it whatever I want! Since when are 14-year olds able to disrupt business. I have a few paint colors that might satisfy the white guilt that is all over the world. How about these
