Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

Rewatching this hurts my heart.

many times in american history, they only briefly acknowledge kanaka history; the consequences of the missionary arrival, how they took advantage of the end of the ahupua’a system, the ILLEGAL annexation.So many things are ignored. They talk about Hawai’i in relation to pearl harbour and they briefly talk about the annexation as part of a greater foreign policy, to expand their navy bases. BUT annexation was not some glorious triumph for democratization or american paternalism; it was if anything opposite, the silencing of kanaka history.
