Revenge of Indian Red: White Crayon Colors
SEDONA, AZ - Native American artist John Redhorse has created a new pack of crayons named after Caucasian skin tones. The crayons are a response to the famous Crayola Crayon color, "Indian Red." Redhorse says, "I wanted to create a political statement and also give little Indian children something to enjoy. Not only are these crayons real crayons that are fun to play with, but they give the white devil some of his own medicine." The Payola crayons feature colors with racially-insensitive Caucasian names such as Redneck Red, Pasty White, Frostbitten Blue, and Spray-On Tan Orange.
