So their skin color is brown, When someone points out that my skin tone is white, or beige, I should be offended? Quoting: APOLLO ILLUMINATI
In Indonesia they call White people "bule" which means "without pigments". I wasn't offended.
That's quite interesting the way Indonesians deem that...hmmmm..when you think about it?
Are they referring to how much 'dark' we have in our skin, or 'lack of'?
When I look at other whites, I see different shades of pink, dark, and what not.
I remember reading about how 'BLACK' a person was when they came over to America back in the 1700's from Africa. Don't get me wrong, but when I heard the statement: "Blacker than Toby's arse." What the hell did that mean? And who was Toby?
I also heard the statement: "He/she is so black in the dark, that if it wasn't for them SMILING their pearly whites, we'd lose track of them." Good Lord! How dark in the skin does one have to be before that happens!?!?!?
One thing I've noticed, ever since the Blacks have come to live here in the last so many hundreds of years, is that each generation of Blacks is getting 'paler'.
Is that ONLY because of 'inter-marriage', as well as the fact that each individual's skin is adapting to the 'colder climate'? We have to remember, that the original Black peoples came from a VERY HOT CLIMATE.
I often wonder that if....after a another couple of hundred years living in North America, will these very same individuals (or rather their descendants) - TURN WHITER in color after awhile?Genetics
will be having a hay-day when that happens.
