I think it's fairly obvious, considering the argument was about racism in the first place. Beige has had the same meaning for me as it has for you, signifying bland and boring, but it was also obvious to me that the word was selected in that instance as a set up, beige also being a colour attributed to some ethnic minorities. Hence why I said it was loaded.Genuine question:
Where's the racism angle of "Beige"...... It's just meant "boring" to me for decades.... I don't want to walk into a shit-storm cos I"m not down with twitter-talk.
