    Technically you have color, I think the idea of lots of melanin being necessary for having “color” is inaccurate. Lighter shades of beige are colors just as much as darker shades are. The idea that “people of color” have this tangible thing that separates them from other people (that I will call white here for the sake of identification) is harmful, I think. Just like the words black and white as racial descriptors (to me) are harmful. Just totally reductive and therefore often inaccurate.
