Human skin color can range from almost black (due to very high
concentrations of the dark brown pigment melanin) to nearly colorless
(appearing reddish white due to the blood vessels under the skin) in different people. Skin color is determined by the amount and type of melanin, the pigment in the skin. Variation in skin color is largely due to genetics. As a general pattern people with ancestors from tropical regions (hence greater sunlight exposure) have darker skin than people with ancestors from subtropical
regions. This is far from a hard and fast rule however, because many
light skinned groups have managed to survive at the equator by way of
social adaptation. The same can be said of dark skinned groups living at subtropical latitudes.
