Well, I'm only twenty-six, and hear it from people my age and younger...

It's the opposite with my white friends. "Ugh, I'm so white I glow in the dark! I need to get some sun!" Or buy bronzing cream, if they're concerned about UV rays.

Vox, I don't know any black African immigrants to know if they get any lighter over here, but your average black American isn't 100% black, which plays a part.
