For 33-year-old Lisbeth Lauritsen, it's not about to be krænkelsesparat or not. She clipped it is just about to perleproducenten Hama calls their beige pearl for skin.
- It is the same problem we have with patches. Why should the colour definitely associated to pink? And what will it actually mean to be pink? says Lisbeth Lauritsen on precisely the thoughts that roamed her, while she laid the beads with his children.
She believes that it would be appropriate in relation to the ongoing debate on the hverdagsracisme, if we all reflected a little about why skin tones can be exclusionary.
Therefore, she wrote to perleproducenten Hama, who daily is on the Mother's and supplies the beads to 50 different countries. Here was Lisbeth Lauritsen a surprising, positive message.
They wrote that they would be happy to change the name of their color number 26 from 'Skin' to the 'Matte Pink', says Lisbeth Lauritsen, who is also a member of the city council in Aalborg for the Social democrats.
She has received some support from the people who have sent private messages to her on Facebook. But on the public notices have also been looked sour at Lisbeth Lauritsen. Primarily white men, she points out.
'It's the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Now Hold the fuck man. You must be proud. What a battle you have won. It is precisely such things here, that reinforces racism. Where goes the border. All white will be painted black soon??' ask Tom She Svenningsen.
'Brand #black.... #Krænkelseskulturen have kroende days... #Colour', writes Kenneth Bay Smidt.
- I don't know quite what it is that gets people to think: 'Now it goes here in addition to my skin color.' But I am really glad that Hama has been the wiser, says Lisbeth Lauritsen.
- Some times, you must just adapt the time we live in, and it has Hama just done. A bit like when we formerly called the cream puffs for 'negerboller'. It makes we certainly not longer, she explains.
