I have yet to figure out why its a "travesty" to be proud AND white on this board but that's me.

When I was in college I worked at the Estee Lauder counter in a department store. The woman who worked at the Fashion Fair counter and I used to laugh because we said, "no one's ever happy! The white women come for self-tanners and the black women come for bleaching creme!"

I am so friggin' WHITE, I call myself Whitey-White, but with the proper amount of tanning, slow and even here in the Florida sun, I will tan nice. Now, my daughter is a gorgeous shade of mocha (her father is Cuban/Puerto Rican) chocolate! Lucky girl!

I think I am more pink than white!
That is when I sit out in the sun, red and white again, must be pink?

I was born with a tan also, being that I am puerto rican, but I love being in the sun.

WENNY, it's the red hair...i don't get it...like how does a person turn pink...i literally at times have like a pink undertone and i'm indoors...or are ghost white

i actually used to get embarassed being so white with red hair...
back in the day the only people who liked red heads were really elderly women, they would say to me "you can't get that color in a bottle." mmm, now i feel really pretty..
or perv's who would ask you if your carpet matches your ceiling...something like that...

years of sunning never changed this just left me with sun poisoning, so sun burn you can't move, and have to lie in bed with noxema all over your body..one time my lips we so sun poisoned totally looked like i got hit in the mouth, lips so puffy, like a bad collegen session...and blood blisters..

or how about when you go to the doctor, and you have a perv one, who takes notice of the geography of your freckles.errrrrrrr...

ok, i want to hear other tales of color...

I'm a redhead that's not allowed in the sun due to a medical condition. I give the word white a new meaning!

rottndobelvr, sorry, you can't go in the sun due to your health....

my skin is so sensitive, i always have like rubbing marks, and like irritations...red head skin is too, sensitive....like if i sit by a fire place i will get burns, or one tatoo welted so bad, and he is really well respect, talented artists..

are, redheads, some sort of genetic complication...with only 5 % of the population as redheads, were almost off the darwinian continuim...

Some of you have some pretty funny answers!! I'm light skinned, but I am not white. I'm Latina. I guess I should be Brown, but I'm not. I am light skinned. I get it from my daddy; he's really light skinned, and even has those beautiful green eyes.

I'm light, bright and oh so white... When I was younger, I used to get so dark in the summer cuz I was outside all the time. Ever since college, now I'm so white... it's sad... my boys, however, are of course very fortunate and they look like they have the perfect tan in the WINTER and actually get DARKER than my sister-in-law in summer! They have the natural tan that most white women pay big money for! I'm not raw chicken... But I'm not the shade of caramel I'd like to be like when I was a teenager!

My Mom is Sicilian, so she has the beautiful Olive skin...

And my daughter, FORGET IT, she has the most beautiful complexion and tone, she is half Puerto Rican with the bluest eyes and light brown hair. Her Dad is as white as me though, so go figure...I tell you though this girl gets BROWN in the summer.

I'm always lathering her up with 50+ and leaving myself bare...she nevers burns!

Default Natural tan not always a protection?

I am one of the tri-racial blends that seem to be popular on this board (Black, Native American, Irish, in my case) , and I too have a natural tan, a sort of light-to-medium yellow-brown hue.

But expose me to even five minutes of direct sun, and I turn an angry red; ten minutes causes blistering. Thankfully, this disappears if I have the sense to go back inside or at least find some shade.

Just curious if this happens to anyone else that was born tanned--or could it just be the revenge of my outnumbered, paler distant ancestors?

Jen
