Talking about skin color can be complicated! Some words are very offensive and will make you sound like a racist! What is acceptable to society changes over time. I’m sure you’re a good person and that you don’t want to say something that sounds rude or ignorant. I made this lesson for you so you’ll know how to talk about skin color without hurting or offending someone. This lesson is VERY important because you can get in a lot of trouble by using the wrong words! It is part of the cultural learning you must do when you are learning English.
