This is a standard colour palette name that has been in use for years. R did not invent it. It simply uses the standard names. Look up indianred on google. You will find Wikipedia entries, hex codes for the colour, etc.

This has nothing to do with R, in my opinion.

    I'm hoping someone on here knows the appropriate place/contact for me to
    lodge a complaint about a color name in the "colors" function. I was
    shocked to see there are four named color options that include the term
    "indianred." Surely these colors can be changed to something less
    offensive- my suggestion is "blush." How can I find out who to contact
    about making this happen?

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
