i never understand why non-white characters can’t just be described as fucking brown

they gotta be caramel, mocha, dark chocolatey, cocoa, whatever nonsense

can we start describing white characters with food terms too? “her milk-white arms.” “his light mayonaisse face.” “her hair was the color of dijon mustard.” yeah. sounds about right.

Maybe this is because I AM a POC, but I describe white people like food all the time. Milk-white or cream, hair like wheat, etc etc. I’ve used all of those.

I definitely have a light mayonnaise face and egg-cream arms :D

I’ve seen milk-white, cream-colour, even something that was like yellowy cheese or something?
