This shade of "flesh" is the color of Caucasian flesh. Is this offensive to people of a different color? Should Crayola rename other crayon colors?

The Crayola color "flesh" was renamed peach 50 some years ago and Crayola has renamed other colors because of race association throughout the years.

And Purple Mountain's Majesty? Seriously...? "Billy, can you pass me Purple Mountain's Majesty, please?"

Beaver? That's had to get a snicker or two...

Fuzzy Wuzzy...(I am not referring to the color Beaver. This is another color name.)'nuff said...

Jazzberry Jam? I'm sensing a pattern...
Mountain Meadow, Tickle Me Pink...

Anyway...
Happy coloring!!

First of all, I have never seen a purple mountain...and secondly, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't a beaver, he was a bear...with no hair...so he wasn't very fuzzy...maybe the color "flesh" is now called "fuzzy wuzzy"?!? ;)

Genius. You have solved the mystery. If you shave your fuzzy wuzzy, then you can see the flesh below. Tickle me pink also opens up a lot of questions. Where is Aly when we need him.

The beaver had hair.What became of it is a mystery.I speculate it was set on fire by friction.
