And speaking of white privilege, how about those Band Aids? God-dammit!

Back on topic: There are practical implications (but I've been told they were as much a function of lighting as film): Photographers asked us to have tonal-consistency in choosing models for still shots. They could 'light' for pink or they could 'light' for dark brown, but not both.

Do they still make Band Aids? I gave up on those years ago.

I LUUUUV New Skin - but not on a fresh, open wound (you're a better man than I am, Gunga Din. I can't handle that stinging pain)


Truss me, there's still a market for Band Aids. In fact, if memory serves, Band Aid offered No-Borders Brown a few decades ago.
