Now I want some chocolate.

There are so many subtle ways to traverse the intricacies of describing characters of various races, nationalities, etc. while they’re being introduced. “This guy was talking to a Black guy” is not subtle. (And don’t even get me started on the fact that the first guy didn’t get a racial descriptor so we’re supposed to automatically assume he’s……? Yeah.)

It has always and will always annoy me.

(P.S. I love chocolate as much as anyone, but I’m really over the word being used to describe my skin. I mean, I’m probably quite delicious, but still.)
