Watch what happens when they add sun screen.
No doubt that some folks skin takes to the sun better than that of others. I grew up in the tropics and was burned red more often than not. I live in high desert today, and while it's too late today to undo the damage of my youth, I wear a hat and stay out of the sun whenever I can.
Still, I never hated/envied black folks because of it. Some things just are the way they are: you accept them and move on. To do otherwise is to tilt at windmills, spit into the wind, etc: wasted energy and spirit.
Interesting. I had no idea that sunscreen actually created black face to absorb the sun rays. Some of the participates were really surprised as well.
I think you mean black folks skin, and others of darker complexion take better to the sun than white folks and pale individuals.
And just because you don't envy black folk doesn't mean others don't; do you speak for the entire white race?
So, they've just been wearing invisible black face, because their white skin is getting burnt up and aging them rapidly.
Hey brutha Hodee!!!
That is the reason why walls, and other surfaces are painted/finished in light tones, they reflect the light better. The darker the surface, the less light that is reflected back to the light source. Just look around and you will see this fact. Notice how a room painted in a dark tone needs more light to brighten it up.
This is too funny...Back in the day, whites in entertainment used black face to also make fun of us, when in reality, they were making fun of themselves also...
This is what happens when whites try and look like us thru artificial means.
And I'll bet these same whites and many more have talked about, and made fun of our black skin all the while doing things to get what we have.
The sad reality though is a majority of black persons in the USA have a vitamin D deficiency from a lack of sunlight on the skin, that has led to a variety of health problems.
Yeah, poor diet and can't forget the chems, and other additives they put in our foods these days.
