Woah great quiz and congrats on the feature! Just one thing - can you accept turquoise as a type-in for "blue green?"
+6
Level 95
Jul 21, 2020
Thank you for the comment! As the colour used in the Crayola No. 64 box is listed as 'blue-green', I have used that as a type-in, but perhaps the Quizmaster might see fit to allow 'turquoise'.

How come "Indian" in "Indian Red" appears as "Indian" with a strikethrough?
+4
Level 89
Jul 22, 2020
most likely because of the controversy in it's name.
+22
Level 95
Jul 22, 2020
That name is scored out because, while it is accurate historically, it has potentially serious racial undertones and was expunged from Crayola’s collection in 1999, being replaced with ‘Chestnut’. (It began innocently enough - with that red colour referring to geography, i.e. the country of India. The change took place after a large number of American teachers complained that their students were drawing discriminatory conclusions pertaining to American Indians.)

These complaining American teachers were not doing their job very well, then. I wonder why.

Within a free market, speaking generally, a private corporation is permitted to do whatever they want. The fact that Binney & Smith chose to omit something that they found unnecessarily offensive toward an oppressed people group—even if that offense was caused by a misunderstanding—doesn't seem to me to be any sort of misdemeanour. If a culture is so affected by the name change of a crayon, I believe that said culture is quite weak and insecure.

This does not change the fact that the crayon was called "Indian Red"
+9
Level 95
Aug 19, 2020
Indeed, this does not change the fact that the crayon was called 'Indian Red', but in exercising freedom of expression, I have scored out the answer so that, while it is perfectly readable, it is understood to be problematic in terms of the marginalisation of people of colour.

you do you, but to me, that's silly. If you want to take a stand against it, then just include 63 of the 64 with a disclaimer that one was omitted because of reasons you see fit. Striking out a word does nothing more than bring attention to the very thing you are trying to avoid being an issue.

I never wrote that I was trying to avoid this being an issue… In fact, I think that discussing the subject is helpful.

Seems to me that the problem here is not the name of a crayon, but the attitudes of those using the crayons. I liked the quiz mind you - I like this type where you don't know the answers but have to come up with a number of plausible ones.

Level 66

Somewhere in recent history, the word flesh started to be conflated with the word skin, because human meat generally comes in the wrapping of the latter. Hence why some color schemes depict flesh as a light brown. But meat is clearly red and would actually be politically correct since "we all bleed red."

I am certain that magenta was one of the colors. The time-frame for the quiz includes all of my childhood, and I went through several of these 64-crayon boxes. My cousin and I used to regard magenta and midnight blue as the two most highly prized crayons in the box.

I would have sworn the same, but clearly whatever we are remembering was something else - different crayon maker perhaps. Memory doesn't work the way we tend to think it does. Don't put too much stock in it when there is evidence to the contrary.

Gold, silver...... copper! I mean just go with bronze even though it is an alloy, it basically has the same color.

What a strange choice of names they went with. No pink, purple, indigo, magenta, lilac, burgundy, scarlet, cream, khaki... Then they have a bunch of hyphenated (compound) colors. I mean red-orange is just vermillion.

On the other hand, they decided on fancy names like "bittersweet"... how the heck does a taste sensation get a place on the color spectrum? Is it pink because tongues are pink?

+5
Level 82
Oct 22, 2022
apparently "bittersweet" refers to a plant and not the flavor! I didn't even know there was such a plant before looking it up, though, so not sure if that's a great name choice
