Not Too Peachy
Lorna Roth says, “The change from Flesh to Peach was made essentially for reasons of social justice and racial equity, and it made good moral sense in a period of United States history in which the civil rights movement was beginning to make political and constitutional gains. The retirement of Flesh recognized a clear ideological and racial bias embedded in the product concept, and Binney & Smith sought to correct it.” This brings to my mind that I have always felt that peach was not a very peachy color. So I bought a peach and I sliced it. I found the crayon called “Peach” and colored with it. What do you think? Is it peachy to you?
