Popular Culture & National Culture Project

For this project I focused on social equality issues that still exist in our society today. With as many strides that have been made in race equality issues, I am amazed that commercial products are still not widely available for people if their skin is not white. The "skin toned" colors for products such as nylons, or Band-Aids, are skin colored- if you are Caucasian. 

I created this piece to bring awareness to "white privileges" that exist in our society today. These "privileges" should be a freedom shared by people of all colors. How hard would it really be to produce Band-Aids in a variety of skin tones? (Sheer or clear doesn't cut it, the pad on the back of the band-aid is still very light in color).
