Light "yellow" skin?[edit]

"The new reference card featured Japanese women with light yellow skin." I think this is a somewhat clumsy way to refer to east Asian skin tones, which, as any fule kno, are not yellow. Possibly racist, definitely clumsy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NelC (talkcontribs) 13:55, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Biased chemistry? How is that even possible?[edit]

"Stock color film chemistry for still cameras was designed originally with a positive bias toward "Caucasian" skin tones because of its high level of reflectivity."

That sentence is pure non-sense. It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that chemistry used to capture light works better when there is more light to capture. Duh! It's like saying telescope are racist, because they work better with stars than with black holes... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aydree (talkcontribs) 12:03, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
