"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."- Dr. Martin Luther King, August 28, 1963
I love these flesh tone crayons!
we are all of one flesh. I want these for my kids. I'm not racist in any way and I will raise my kids in the same manner. This is just one of the ways that I can pound into their head that if God made people with different colors of skin then it is good.
A powerful statement to address one of my pet peeves... kids looking for the 'peach' crayon and asking, "where's the skin color crayon?" I always reply with a small handful of various shades... Would be nice if everyone's crayon box was like this.
Color me human! In 1962, the color flesh was changed to peach recognizing that not everyone's flesh is the same shade. In 1999, indian red was renamed chesnut to clarify it is not the color of skin of peoples of First Nations descent.
