What smart consumers and savvy e-businesses know but few can afford to admit is that there is still a link between skin color and money. It has become increasingly difficult for businesses to track color. The problems increase exponentially when we enter the shifty and sometimes dark world of e-commerce.

In the good old days we had methods like the tried and true brown paper bag test. But in this fast-paced, ever-changing world of e-commerce and online communities, who can afford the time and embarrassment of taking or administering a brown paper bag test in public? The Interaction of Coloreds Color Check System® is your answer!

 

With the discovery that color is the most relative medium in art, and that its greatest excitement lies beyond rules and canons, a more sensitive discrimination was needed.

Liberty through Digital Precision

The IOC Color Check System® liberates our clients from antiquated and inaccurate terminology for color classification. Our Hyper-Race® based solutions cut racial categorization down to a manageable size. Terms like high yellow, blue black, caramel-colored, skillet blonde, redbone, Spanish-lookin', brown-skinned, olive, meriney, chocolate, and white seem even more vague when attempting to view a body through a webcam or browser.

 

Wouldn't it be refreshing to get trustworthy color info like John Smith, #FFFFFF (read: true white) when you receive an email? Then try the Interaction of Coloreds Color Check System® - the world's first online skin color verification system.

Require that your customers, employees, and associates register with the IOC Color Check System®. They can fill out a simple online application and send us a few jpegs of their skin all from the privacy of their own homes. In return, we will classify them with a verified hexadecimal code, which will give you (and them) an exact measure of their color.

. . . it is still true that only a minority can distinguish the lighter from the darker . . .

It Takes One to Know One

The IOC Color Check System® is faster and more accurate than any other system for skin color verification. That old adage is right: it takes one to know one. IOC founders Keith and Mendi (who would formerly be classified as a darkie and a redbone, respectively) developed this state-of-the-art system after years of detailed Diasporic research. They've been allowed and denied access to some of the most exclusive organizations in the Americas. Our system is based on techniques refined over centuries, aided by the latest digital image processing technologies. Do you worry that a fair-skinned person of African descent might register as white in your browser? Never fear. White-skinned coloreds are always assigned separate hex codes. Our system reserves the hex code #FFFFFF for "true whites" so that our customers feel as secure as a snowflake falling on a lily, floating in cream and rising to the top. (See contractual fine print for the IOC definition of "true white".) Our precise image readings are compared to historical family records and our own international digital archives.

The IOC Color Check System® can't be fooled by meriney techniques like bleaching creams, skin peels, PhotoShop adjustments, or grapefruit-soaked elbows. And sunbathers, don't worry about your summer tan. As long as you didn't inherit that tan, it will not be read by our IOC Color Check system. Just make sure you follow our strict jpeg guidelines and answer a few detailed questions about family history. Don't trust anyone else with your color verification. Use the IOC Color Check System®
