The soft racism of Mishpacha magazine

On page 27 of the current Mishpacha Magazine one of our intrepid readers located the following:
"Based on this understanding of the Maharal, I once heard, in the name of Rav Moshe Shapiro, shlita, a beautiful insight into the structure of human lips. The human body, on its surface, is peach or tan, while the inner lining is red. The lips, on the other hand, are the opposite."
Really? Peach or tan? No other choices? Or is it that no one else is considered to have "human lips" and a "human body"?
