“Nude”

There’s been a lot of talk about the trend of Nude shoes and apparel and how it’s racist.

If that color isn’t called nude, what should it be called? Perhaps just Pale? In one of those links above, they use the term Champagne, which actually is a really good description. It’s used for car colors, why not for this instance as well?
