Do black people tan?

I'm genuinely curious, not trying to say anything bad at all...can they darken their skin by being out in the sun?

  • yes,black people can get darker in the sun. Skin color is just determined by how much melanin is in your skin.They have more,whites have less.

  • Yes. We had neighbors from India and the brown children would turn very, very brown in the summer. The mom would get upset because in their culture the lighter you are the better it is.
