Why do black people have bigger lips?

I know this question sounds horrible but I've always notice it, why is that?

  • because thats a characteristic of their race!!! there are 3 races, Mongoloid, Negroid and Caucasoid. Negroid (of more african decent) have relatively dark skin, large lips, a relatively flat nose, and dark coarse hair. those are the features of that race. Mongoloid race tends to have more yellowish skin, narrow eyes, and thick dark hair. Caucasoid have the pointed nose, the light skin, and the fine hair

  • The same reason they have darker skin and hair - genetics.

  • genetics. Why do black people tend to have tightly curled hair? why do Asians tend to have bone-straight hair that's naturally black? why do Irish people tend to have red hair? I think it's just how the genest are passed down.

  • Something tells me that momofone725 gave the answer you are looking for...I am assuming you are just curious and it has nothing to do with being racist! and i am also assuming that you are not african american or you probably would not ask correct?

  • They post anonymous because they were probably afraid of being called racist and being attacked

  • It is environmental adaptation.

    Just like any other animal humans adapt to their environment and develop traits that help them survive in their climate.

  • Just what everyone else is saying - genetics. Though not all black people have big lips. I had a few white friends in high school that have big lips too.
