Treehouse challenges are fickle, change this line:

# from this
if favorite_color == "Blue" :

# to this
if favorite_color == "blue":

You are failing because you have "Blue", not "blue".

It's moreso because Python is fickle lol.

'Blue' != 'blue' # true

You are right but other code schools often give you better pointers other than just Bummer, you can get a hint and personally I think that kind of feedback is needed so I level blame at treehouse.
