Could you have phrased that any worse? It depends on the individual.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Wow!! That couldn't have sounded much more racist. Although...


It wasn't racist at all.... wow sensative people.

It really depends. People with half black (or other non-white) ancestry can be anywhere from very dark to very light. It's basically just a random selection when genes from their parents combine. I've met a guy who was half black and had skin about the same shade as mine (I'm 1/4 Asian, but basically look white), and I've met some who look 100% black. My friend Katrina (also 1/2 black) looks more Puerto Rican or something, while her brother looks completely black.

So there really isn't any threshold, it just depends on the person.

There's one on my profile. I really just look white though, except for my eyes and a few other facial features.

Double Edit: Pic was way huge, so I removed it.

The amount of european ancestry has nothing to do with it. You can have 100 percent european ancestry except for one of your parents and be completely black. It's all about how the DNA forms during fertilisation, which genes are recessive, which are dominant, etc. It's been known for a mixed race relationship to produce twins, one fully white, one fully black. So the answer to your question is, you only need one parent to be white for the chance to be white. To be white for sure, then it gets more difficult.
Stupid? Pointless? Dangerous? Count me in!

Man, I'm white due to my dad being Italian-Brazilian, other than that, everyone in my family is pretty much dark skinned with African features.

Yea it will be sad if obama gets elected because he will be considered the first black president even though he looks closer to Mideastern or Latino color wise. I just wish he was more black.

Interesting. It almost seems to me that this would mean you are not of 100% European ancestry.

The drummer from Bloc Party appears to be a mix of asian and european. I dont know what percentages, though.
#24
youre ancestry has nothing to do with it,

over 40 different individual genes all together make up your skin color,

i know a kid with a full black dad, and half black mom, who looks like a tan white person, just the way the genes happen to segegregate,

is that situation unlikely? yes, impossible? no

ancestry has nothing to do with it, not nationality at least, its genetics

I know a guy who's half black. But he has light skin like all the other white people, green eyes and light brown hair! (not albino) When he said he was half black I loled!

I have a friend who is 1/4th Japanese. It's kind of odd, she has subtle Asian facial features and body shape, but white skin, brown hair, and blue eyes.

to be white you have to be 100% percent white
if you mix anything with white, it's pretty much the same as whatever the other factor is
white people genes are like recessive
