If ivory means white & ebony means black?

What means red, yellow or brown? You know Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics, etc. What term do we use for that skin tone? I often hear ebony or ivory but I never hear about any of the others. Makes me wonder.

    Red - russet

    Brown - chocolate

    But russet is leather and chocolate is candy!

    Well, keep in mind that ivory is elephant tusk, and ebony is a type of wood.

    It's simply describing words that sound better than saying "black" or "white."

    Ocher, saffron and mahogany.

    You could start with those and look around for more.
