This is a great article on this subject lol...

Controversial Colors.
A lot of jokes have been made about the pink-toned crayon labeled "Flesh", but it was voluntarily renamed "Peach" back in 1962 partially in response to the Civil Rights Movement. However it's not the only controversial change in the pallete.

In fact, it's not even the first. The first change was renaming "Prussian Blue" to "Midnight Blue" in 1958 in response to the Red Scare.

Speaking of Red, "Indian Red" was renamed "Chestnut" in 1999.

In 1990, Crayola retired another eight of their least popular colors, including Lemon Yellow and Raw Umber, replacing them with flourescent colors. Strangely enough, even this move caused picketing and protest from a group called the Raw Umber And Maize Preservation Society. Seriously, they just can't win for losing.

The only way to be politically correct is to make all crayons clear colored. Another benefit of this is no more coloring outside the lines.
