Student or Learner
The passage below is a part of an article about the practice of skin lightening by African women.
...Yes, black is beautiful, but so also is white, brown, yellow and the many shades in between. When white people use tanning lotions, solariums and other methods to darken their skin, it is treated as par for the course and other white people don't feel the need to remind them that “white is beautiful”. In fact, such a statement would likely be regarded as racist by members of other races...
I think the "is" in bold should be "are" grammatically, like you say, "Tom is tall and so are his brothers".
Am I missing something important?
Is there a way to edit the title? I noticed there was a mistake in it after I had posted this question. I'd appreciate it if anyone could kindly tell me how.
