Is it just me, or is this just a little too ridiculous?




My friend took that picture earlier today. She works with special needs children at a school and apparently they gave these crayons to them today.


I think the fact that those crayons even exist is just a little ridiculous.

Thoughts?

I don't see a yellow.
Crayola hates the Chinese!

Maybe they should just make a pack with no white in and call it "Affirmative Action Crayons".

That's taking political correctness a bit too far.

Considering the amount of racism present in the world, I feel that it's not that bad.


I didn't know you gave input!

He has a good point, but they're crayons for crying out loud.

Luckily it only takes 8 crayons to represent racial diversity.

Seriously though, yea.. it's funny >.>

In my world, the color RED doesn't exist.

Looking at the colours, they look as though they might be good for colouring in different shades of skin?
Just a thought.
UG and Sporcle are both fantastic time wasting devices.

I could've used those when I was a kid. All the people in my drawings looked like the simpsons. As a result, they didn't make it onto the fridge as much as I'd have liked.

Definitely a bad name for them.

They could've named them "skin tones" or something. Why Multi-Cultural?

I guess it's a bit useful when drawing people (I never knew whether to use white, yellow or pink for skin) but then again it's drawing undue attention to skin colour. I doubt kids discriminate or even think of peoples' skin colours.

Look at some of the post just in this thread, yeah I proved you wrong

I think it's a good idea. I always hated colouring in skin when I was younger because HUMANS DON"T HAVE PINK SKIN!!!!

I dont think they have a color pale enough to capture the gingers

no, we leave them uncolored when we draw them and then bleach the paper.

seriously though, I imagine its for kids who want to draw little politically correct stick figures.

Well, naming it "multicultural" isn't a good idea, but I wish I had the pack itself back when I was a kid

Back in elementary, all my characters turned out like the Simpsons because I didn't have any skin colored crayons, unless I bought the 94 pack, which was like $100

of course it's going to far. You know who's to blame? the blacks.

Those were AMAZING, they even came with a crayon sharpener on the box.

This is almost as bad as "Cultural Awareness Month" for preschoolers. Funny how the kids all end up confused, not enlightened. I once read an article where it ended up with 1 kid running round yelling, "I'm white", 2 blonde girls going, "We're the same", and the black girls crying. Great job, political correctness, you made a kid cry!

I don't see the problem with this, other than the name being stupid.
Skin color =/= culture.

On a side note: i've always wondered what color band-aids are in Africa. It would be such an awesome piece of post-colonial racism if they were based on the color of white people's skin. With every wound inflicted they're reminded of those inflicted in the past, that's pretty ****ing poetic if you think about it.
But never mind, no African can afford band-aids in the first place.
