Toutchy subject I see.
Finaly: I have been using (when I play with space stuff, which is less than castle stuff) megaphones and faucet heads for blaster guns. I can make due without proper skin tones if I have to.

When they were next to yellow figs they made the yellow stand out like a sore thumb. This got me defensive on the wrong side I guess. All my yellow minifigs will look weird if this keeps up. But, really, so what. I'll work with it.

LEGO started something here and I think they should finish it all the way, no doubt about it. It seems to me that as soon as they licenced movies and sports, in which there are real people, they brought this sleeping issue of their color choice to the fore front. They must follow through or face this kind of question more and more often.

LEGO is a toy and building mechanism. It does not have to represent real life.
Also, I am sorry for any offense taken, and I'm sorry for my lack of political correctness. :|
I would like to ask anyone that attends the 1000steine-LEGO question sessions to ask if they are going the racial direction, if possible. Please try to make the question as vague as possible. We don't want them to lose their jobs. ;)
