OK. I'm sorry Toot. I'm a little lost. How does medium brown or even light brown skin indicate mixture? I'm light brown (I say light brown instead of "light" because in my family there is definitely a difference! Light brown is like Kim Coles, light is like Jasmine Guy) and know that due to my Mom's side there's a lot of intermixture. BUT........I've met Africans who are the same color if not lighter than me and they are straight up Africans who say they have no mixture of any kind. In fact, one guy at the library is Ibo from Nigeria and he looks something like Terrance Howard! Not everyone from Africa is dark brown. Many are, but also, the San people of South Africa are medium brown. They're cinnamon brown looking like Whitney Houston, and very very asian looking facially, but they're "pure" Africans. Please elaborate as I'm a bit lost. Thanks!!
