Given the chance to choose your own skin color, you would choose to be white, amirite?

I don't like tanning. I'd prefer to be as white as possible because it expresses my lack of care in my appearance and my liking of the indoors.

Although I'm not Hispanic myself, I just love everything about their culture. Their hair styles, their skin tone, their food... I just find it so nice and for no reason at all except that it's...nice.

Black, for the following reasons;

-College acceptance, as stated above
-Political correctness is in my favor for pretty much everything
-Affirmative action in general

I'm assuming this is in modern times. If we're talking about being black before all of this political correct nonsense...hell naw.

"I'm assuming this is in modern times. If we're talking about being black before all of this political correct nonsense...hell naw."

So you admit that black people were treated really horribly, and yet you still think that being politically correct (or should I say, not racist) is "nonsense"? And also implying that this political correctness is improving their quality of life, yet it is still nonsense?

Personally, I think you, and a lot of other people, overestimate the treatment that people of colour, particularly blacks, go through even in modern times.

While I wouldn't call being politically correct "nonsense", I kind of disagree with you. I feel like affirmative action focuses on getting people of different races into college rather than providing opportunities for those who wouldn't otherwise get them. Without affirmative action, a student's race would have zero effect on whether or not a student is admitted, leaving room for other programs which provide students with the same opportunities.

I also really don't think blacks in particular struggle very much anymore. It's just like feminism in America today. Sure, there's a lot of people who are still racist/sexist, but by no means are they the majority. And if anything, people discriminate more against people of Middle Eastern descent rather than African Americans.

Tan, and I'd choose naturally black hair to go with that.

Do people think this is racist or something? Is that why they keep voting it down?

Either way, I'd prefer to be white because I don't really /need/ black skin in where I live. Plus black skin and hair is a bit harder to keep clean (according to my black friends, anyways), and tan skin just gives a false sense of me liking to go outdoors. White skin just seems like me.

I can see that. For some reason first world countries have this obsession with exoticism in humans. I just can't get too into it, I guess. I'll take what I can get so long as it's good.

Actually, that's pretty much everyone. In some rural towns in China, for example, the inhabitants will walk up to blonde people and stroke their hair to see if it's real because it's something they've rarely, if ever, seen before.

People are voting it down because not everyone is/wants to be white. White isn't a default, or the "natural" state. (And the fact that you're wondering why not everyone is voting it up kind of worries me.) I'd stay the race I am, as would a lot of people. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being white, it's just not something that everyone has to desire.

I just have a couple black friends complain about how hard it is to take care of black hair and skin. I have no idea how it would be harder, besides hair.
Either way I still think I'd be white. It just...fits me, I guess?

Hair, yes, skin, no. I was just curious as to why they would say that; I have no problem with anyone choosing to be white (hopefully it didn't sound like I was implying that).

I don't have a problem with other people wanting to be black or Hispanic or anything either (sorry but my post seems to have implied that and I didn't mean it to). I just can't see it.

Black skin gets dry easier, and African-American hair is expensive and requires skill to take care of, especially if you want to keep it natural.
