Am I racist because of this?

Okay, so we have this root word project every week, and its due on Fridays. I realized I didn't draw any color onto my little persons skin, so I made her orange. And I said "There we go! You have some color now, you're not just plain white." And then a boy shouted. "Aye! So you racist now?" And everybody started laughing, and ignoring me the rest of the day.
What bugs me the most is, that I didn't even say it really loud. Just so my partner could hear me.

You're not racist because you didn't realize, plus, I don't even think that was a racist thing to say. The person that it was wanted to make themselves look tougher.

that's not racist, that's stating that you improved your project, putting a banning sign on your store denying a certain race is racist

No. Don't worry that's not racist if you didn't mean anything bad. People seem to be a little over sensitive about the way you speak. For example, one of my friends calls me racist just if i mention the color "white" or "black".

No your not. People are absurdly uptight. Maybe friends avoided you because you made them look at themselves and didn't like what they saw. Your no bigot take it easy.

I think the supposed racism is found in the comment

"There we go! You have some color now, you're not just plain white"

I wouldn't be offended. Sounds like something I might say under those circumstances. :-)

I agree. If I were a drawing on a piece of paper, and if I could have desires, I would desire to be colored, orange would work!!

no...the person who made the joke is.
i realised that if someone is talking about crayons and they say black or white someone says their racist. so when it happens to me i tell them that their racist ''just because im white does not mean i should not be able to use the word black''
