I despaired over the prejudices of the human species reacting to various skin tones, when skin tones are just a biological fact of skin pigmentation evolving to regulate the amount of ultraviolet radiation penetrating the skin
I made eliminating skin tones my passion and started to experiment with manipulating the gene that determined skin colour and studied melanin, the main determinant of skin colour, but realization soon dawned I was taking the wrong approach.
The body colour we see is determined by the wave length of reflected light, as millions of tiny cone cells in the retina respond to light, and so I experimented in ways to manipulate the wavelength of reflected light to deceive the retina into interpreting this information in a specific way to fool the cortex into returning specific colours.
I prayed in gratitude to the God of science when I perfected a retina deceiving nanobot hidden inside a coloured pill, that when swallowed would change the onlookers perception to the specific colour of the pill an individual swallowed.
What I failed to predict was that a whole new colour identity social structure emerged, as individual choice in colour gave way to group identity choice.
The first adherents of this new technology were the LGBT community who adopted violet as their colour of choice, environmentalists chose green, political parties soon jumped on board with conservatives adopting blue and liberals/socialists/progressives adopting red, religious leaders frowned on this new technology and forbade their followers to take part; except for Buddhists who swallowed a yellow pill.
