Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
I got busy in the kitchen today after service: curry chicken, rice, tuna salad and some romaine. This is my first time eating rice since like Tuesday… I’m doing better with my diet…
This morning I was pumping gas && an interesting thought crossed my mind… How am I valuing myself? Who am I living for? Everyday I wake up, so thankful to get another opportunity, but scared for the same reason. Can’t help but think about the mistakes. I find comfort in the fact that if God didn’t have plans for me to succeed I would not still be here. Be encouraged.
