Bathroom Monologue: From the Annals of Poorly Written Science Fiction, Volume 170

"My world has three races. The first two are the Whites and the Blacks. White people have a kind of tope- or beige-colored skin. Their hair is black, brown, yellow or orange. Black people have brown skin, and black hair. The third race that some people call Yellows or Reds, but those speakers are mostly ignorant. This race has mostly the same skin colors of white people when they've been out in the sun, but their eyes are a little narrower. Their hair is black, too. Oh, and white, black and yellow people all have the same color lips and scar tissue: pink. I guess I'll do it as beige sometimes, for variety. When any of the races gets older, their hair turns grey or white, or just falls out. There's not much rhyme or reason to it. Huh? No, white people are never really white. Truly white people are called "albinos," which is a word from a period in this world's culture that nobody cares about."
