i never understand why non-white characters can’t just be described as fucking brown
they gotta be caramel, mocha, dark chocolatey, cocoa, whatever nonsense
can we start describing white characters with food terms too? “her milk-white arms.” “his light mayonaisse face.” “her hair was the color of dijon mustard.” yeah. sounds about right.
