When I hear brownies I think of the yummy chocolate dessert bars. LOL. I'd almost forgotten about the different levels of girl guides so I never thought about how the names might be a bother to some though with this it has nothing to do with actual colour. Sigh.

$1:
Critics of the change say the origin of the name has nothing to do with race. Brownies are fairies in Scottish folklore.

I never got to do the Girl Guide thing though when I was in elementary school there were certainly many classmates I had who did. I guess it was expensive or some other reason it was denied to me.
