Fifties or Sixties. Short story or (probably) novelette.
Amateur researcher (who is Negro) develops measles vaccine. It turns his skin red. He gives it to a female Caucasian (forget the relationship) and it turns her red too.
So they go all over the country putting the vaccine in the water to end Racism.
And people turn red, green, blue or yellow based on blood type. And start discriminating again.

Well, Tiggertim, you found it. But do you need author and tile to count as "Found"?

Sorry, but even after a lot of searching I couldn't find those details, but hopefully I will have set one of the more experienced people here on the right track (I'm only beginning to contribute after having benefited from these peoples' experience previously).

I searched for the phrase 'how did you turn red' on this site:
and voila! First entry in the results

As it's the correct answer, Tom, I'm marking it as 'found'.

Two authors. How does that kind of thing work in a short story?
Does one write one paragraph and the other write the next, back and forth?
