"Multicultural markers help children learn about self, family, and community. Feature eight skin-tone colors including Tan, Beige, Tawny, Gold, Beige, Bronze, Terra Cotta, Mahogany and Sienna."1. I fail to see how a set of markers in eight earth-tones is really going to teach kids about "self, family, and community." Wanna show them that there are different skin tones? Look around. Unless you are in some uber-religious private school which has the right to be obnoxiously racist, you'll see it just fine.
2. I love how, in the end, they still have nothing to do with culture. It's still just the same shades of brown they have in most 64 packs of crayons. Left out the more yellowish and reddish tones, though. So it's still not THAT multi-cultural...but the PC crowd probably loves it.
3. You said "beige" twice. Learn to proofread. Ass.
