I'm so coal black that people often confuse me to be African rather than Indian.

I am not like pale light but I am lighter than the average color of a Indian.
And I'm proud of it! So many people wish they had the same tan as me! Tanning is a trend in the US. I am close to this...a mix of golden and chestnut...but closer to a dark tint of golden.

here's a skin color chart...http://i.imgur.com/ZLZQ72l.jpg

great points all. yes this topic is less of a debate and more of getting to know personal view first.

now according to "NumNum theory of beautivity" which if I understood properly says that those who tend to be darker in skin tone are more likely to say dark is beautiful. Therefore posters here can be divided into fair versus dark
 
Fair
- Miss/Mr. Zephy
- Mr NumNum
- Miss Planet
 
Dark in skin tone
- Miss Laila
- Miss Aarya
- Miss Hades
- Miss Daisy
- Miss Moomin
- Miss Shweta
 
There are 9 members.
 
My request to each member is if they are okay then please state whether you are fair or dark in skin tone. We can then test in how many cases NumNum theory of beautivity holds true.
 
Note: Fair and dark here are relative to Indian sub-continent.
 
Note: Please take this as positively as being fair or dark is not an insult 


Ridiculous stereotyping at its best in bolded red.LOL

<-------- That's my picture on the DP. Clearly, I'm not dark skinned. However, I love dark skin. Therefore, I tan on the beach every summer and all the guys I end up dating like me tan as well, I  I get pale in the winter and I hate that.  I guess some of us just appreciate what we don't naturally have. It's human nature, really. Girls with natural curly hair envy girls with natural straight hair. Girls with natural straight hair envy girls with natural curly here. There is no conspiracy theory at work, here.I only bothered to answer since you put my name in that list of your's. Or else, I find this entire line of reasoning preposterous.Silly

Data collection process has started. Since the input here is self-report there is chance of bias here. Anyway I have to go with what each person is saying.
 
1) So RTH is "coal black" like Africans. Okay I am imagining you as
 
 
2) Shewta. Skin color chart. lol. It doesnt matter what you are. Important thing is you are happy. Thats what I like to see in people.
 
3) Dex. I am not stereotyping. lol. I am testing "NumNum theory of beautivity" here. And I cant see your picture. All that I see is a clown making faces. Anyway thanks.
 
Data is being processed. Once all data is collected results will be out.

^^^Then I can't help ya unless I appear in front of you in person.LOL Although why are you so inquisitive about people's skin color is beyond me. Ermm Do we always look for bias with a magnifying glass whenever an opinion is given on a forum or is this just being done in this instance to stir shit up?  If latter is the case, I'll let the others duke it out and watch from the gallery. Ciao.LOL

NumNum raised an interesting point. I am testing that. I also understand that this test is not perfect as not everyone will report correctly. However in the end we have to go with the data we have. If there are any flaws in data collection process, I will make a note of it. It is as simple as that.
 
And I don't give a damn about what skin color people have here. You are taking it too seriously. lol  Still thanks for input.
 
P.S: If you can change the clown who is making faces in your avi then it would be appreciated. Otherwise okay.  lol
