    I think it's easy to think of this stuff as racist, but it's classist. Pale skin is a sign of status in countries where the poor still toil on the land and being tanned shows you work outside, and so are of lower worth. In "The West" (whatever that means), poor people are stuck inside manning the service industry all day and can't afford to go abroad and lounge around in the sun. Having a tan shows you have money and time to go on holiday and lounge in the sun, and thus have higher worth.

    People should just be a litle tan though. Over-exposure to sun causes skin wrinkles and is the reason 30 year old caucasian girls look 12 years older than their Asian counterparts.

    Yeah, it was pretty much only the 60s/70s that being tan became good in developed nations

    @ Momming,I'm just saying that it's stereotypical and since I have a permanent tan I can add some realism to Kerian's response. As you said it Has been associated with the lower class for centuries yet there are many people who get New Year money everyday that are naturally tan more and more in those very countries .These individuals do not work outside and many are their own bosses.

    But, I argee with your point just not this one,"In "The West" (whatever that means), poor people are stuck inside manning the service industry all day and can't afford to go abroad and lounge around in the sun.
