Society says that we are the ones who are colored and that whites have no color at all. This statement is based on complete ignorance. The color white is formed when all colors in the color spectrum combine, it also reflects all colors. Black, on the other hand, isn't even a color--it's a shade. Black is the absence of all color. It's a scientific fact that we don't even see black, even though we think we do. Obviously there is no such thing as a person with pure white or black skin, but the fact remains, that the darker you get, the less colored you actually are. It just gets on my nerves when words aren't used right. I'm not insecure about my skin tone, I just want people to describe it the right frickin way.
