No worries.

I'm "white and western", I just happened to be born in South Africa!
I still like the brown. I think it's a brave and distinctive choice.

If we are gonna go down the "cultural" perception road then I always argue for 
a locale-based theme such that the locale decides the icons, the colours, the 
fonts, and so on. One size-fits all just don't work.

I'm sure it gets deeper than I have the metaphysics for, but I's still likes 
my browns man!
