When privilege according to ones race is discussed, the idea of something being "nude" is one of the issues that often comes up for minorities and people of color. People don't often think about this because they've never been excluded by a brand before for their skin color, but often in magazines and magazine samples, make-up, crayon colors, band-aids, lingerie, etc., they often list an item as being "nude" or "flesh colored," when in reality that term for them only ever applies to those who are white or fair skinned as evidence by the product color choices.
Nude or flesh colored is not something only white or fair skinned people are. Every one is a shade of nude and flesh colored and every shade should be celebrated and available if one is going to call their product nude or flesh colored. Even for white people, not every white person is the same exact shade, hello!, so thankfully there are a lot of products hoping to change the way the world...well, sees ya nude!
