Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
What fascinates me is the closer to the equator you are, the darker your skin colour is.
It’s my theory that it has to do with vitamin D and natural selection. I’m pretty sure that the darker your skin is, the harder it is for you to absorb vitamin D, and the lighter it is, the easier. Therefore it makes sense to me that in the far north (and far south) where there is less sun, dark skinned people would suffer from a lack of vitamin D (which causes rickets as well as a poor immune system) and die out over time, while around the equator light skinned people would probably die out from skin cancer. Eventually this would lead to people being whiter the farther north/south you go and darker nearer the equator. That’s what I think.
