Fifty Shades of Rainbow. A woke palette to make color-blind feel good about their sight.
Color is a spectrum. Educate yourself about the diversity and inclusivity of colors with this non-conforming rainbowlicious NFT collection by Barabeke.
Science says that color is a spectrum. Even problematic scientists that stubbornly refuse to conform to ideology agree with that. And yet, the patriarchy has blurred our vision with its colorist social constructs. When we see red, we are expected to call it “red”, without seeing the nuances behind the color, making color-blind people feel excluded.
It’s time to have conversations about it. Until everyone will have clear that not embracing these new fifty rainbowlicious colors could cost their job.
Fifty Shades of Rainbow is an NTF collection that I created to celebrate color diversity in an inclusive fashion. It consists of 50 colors you have never heard before, each a unique 1/1 edition.
A very inclusive palette
The best way to present the collection is to give you a quick tour of some of the colors you’ll find in it.
Fifty Shades of Rainbow defies traditional categorizations of colors such as “primary” and “secondary”. No color should be discriminated against!
Still, in my effort to make all colors equal, I have not been forgetful of whether a color is useful for the cause or not… The woke palette divides colors into “ally” and “enemy” types. There are 29 “ally colors” and 21 “enemy colors” to choose from. Here are a couple of them…
The colors are further divided into categories, the most populated one being “color fluid” with 16 new colors to celebrate the many ways in which the disposition to have sex with anyone or whatever can be labeled.
A mirror of the woke victim pyramid
The colors within the Fifty Shades of Rainbow collection have been devised to give representation to various groups in the woke victim pyramid.
Let’s start from the top of the pyramid, from the most cherished category, the one I am sure all your friends and family are most concerned about in their daily lives: trans people.
Here are a couple of colors dedicated to they/them and their problems.
Moving down the pyramid we find the second most cherished category: women (whatever women may mean). While some feminists are being problematic with including their newly acquired sisters in their bathrooms, sports, and prisons, the majority of them are good allies of the social justice narrative (from which they receive empowerment in the form of slogans and hashtags).
Even if defining what a woman is has become insurmountably complex, everyone nowadays seems to want to be one of them. Women are queens of the queers, therefore Fifty Shades of Rainbow could not be forgetful about them and their problems.
Also men, while toxic creatures, find representation within Fifty Shades of Rainbow, as well as some hope of redemption in the form of the only white in the palette that is not considered “enemy” (if men chose to wear it frequently, that white below could change their status from “trash” to “ally”…).
Last and least: children. The bottom of the pyramid, those whose rights you hardly hear about. And yet they are very much beloved by wokes who don’t miss an opportunity to “affirm” themselves in front of them. Children deserved to have their “family-friendly” space in the spectrum…
What about racism? Since a few years racism is everywhere, even in what we eat for breakfast. Fifty Shades of Rainbow could not be color-blind to racial issues and so it aligns with media, corporations, academia, and most institutions in building a vision for society where people are judged not for “the content of their character” but rather for the pigmentation of their skin (and victimized or discriminated accordingly).
But racism is not the only issue covered. There are 9 other “problematic colors” in the spectrum. Here are a couple of examples.
The full collection
More issues find representation in the Fifty Shades of Rainbow palette: postcolonial colors, climate-friendly colors, and also (among the “enemy” colors) the heinous patriarchal ones.
The NFTs will be minted in couples almost every day during Pride month (formerly known as June). Stay updated by following me on twitter, here is the official thread:
See below an image with all 50 colors, the ones in this article are visible while the blurred ones will be gradually released and available as NFTs in the collection on OpenSea.
If before you were color blind, now you can finally see. There are no more excuses for miscoloring or deadnaming colors. To avoid causing chromatic microtraumas, please memorize the new colors as if they were pronouns.
Be an ally: support the rainbow!
While the rainbow in my logo is unrelated, consider me a good ally. So much of an ally that in WWII I would have fought on the side of the Allies (even if I’m Italian).
My allyship is demonstrated by these two articles: the one where I educate about the very essence of “woke” ideology and the one where I celebrate all the graceful and life-saving things wokes are doing to kids.
My rainbow ideology is manifest. I am an artist who blows the wind of the coming times, trying to inspire a culture that could keep us free and dignified in this digital age.
