We talk about a non-gender binary. Shouldn’t we also apply the same line of thinking to race?
Butter skin, olive oil skin, or dark chocolate skin?
What Pantone are you?
Apparently I am Pantone or hex “efd1b9”.
My flesh tone:
Pantone skin tone
For evolutionary perspectives, we all got different skin tones. East Asians got 4 distinct seasons (hot summer, mild autumn, very cold and snowy winter, and bright spring). Thus the Pantone of our skin must be a bit on the fair side (to absorb more Vitamin D or whatever).
But the question:
What does skin tone gotta do with our moral, ethical, or philosophical worth?
Call me red
What race am I? I’m red!
What is my genesis? My mom and dad. That’s it!
Why do we create binaries for things?
- Rich vs Poor
- Smart vs Dumb
- Apple vs Android
- Apple vs Microsoft
- Black vs White
- Man vs Woman
Nuance is key.
Nuance is the answer.
