    Well; I don't really think congoid people have black skins, and yet everyone calls them 'black.' Why nót call caucasians 'pink?' As far as colours go, we use no proper words in our every-day vocabulary to describe a race's skin tone.
    Hell; we might as well start calling people 'purple.'

    Anyway; the question has been answered. Usually, people have no pigment in their gums. Some people, however, do. Congoid people, and other darker-hued people, have more pigment, so it's more noticeable when their pigment does overflow in their gums, or underneath their fingernails. Having dark spots in your gums is no more prevalent in coingoids than it is in caucasoids, or mongoloids... It's merely more noticeable.

    Some people are so insecure about that dark gum that they use laser depigmentation surgery

    after wading through the pages of ignorant "is it racist" arguments and softcore pornography we finally have an answer. i learned something today; not something useful, but something nonetheless

    Alright sir, sorry for displeasing you! I guess we cant have fun and joke around a little...

    P.s if a mod is out there, i think the thread should be closed... it's served its purpose and now people are posting slightly racist jokes and attacking others.

    Easy because they stood with palms of hands and feet against wall/floor when being sprayed.

    That wasn't even a remotely harsh joke.

    This is whats wrong with the world nowadays. People are too sensitive.... I know a black guy, and he doesn't mind jokes bashing black people. he laughs with people aslong as its obviously not ill intented like my joke.
    Yeah, joking around is fine, but not here, not in the slightest. Already people are offended by the question/post. This isnt the place to crack race jokes. Harsh or not.
    Not to mention its completely different when it is a friend or someone you know cracking jokes, not someone, somewhere in the world that you have no clue who they are or their intentions.

    This thread has served it's purpose and the question has been answered. It should now be closed.

    People are curious, not all are racist.

    Everyone in my family loves grape soda, strawberry soday (my sister loves it). I believe it's because the majority of blacks enjoy sweeter tastes. I for example can't drink black coffee, or normal tea. It's got to be sweeter then ever.
    And I never worked towards it, but I ran varsity track in high school as a sprinter, I'd show up to practice with a burrito and soda.

    Of course everyone is different and have their own opinions and tastes.
    I honestly think the whole black stereotype is = to the southern white stereotype. As far as stereotypes go , both like fried chicken, watermelon, collard greens, corn bread (sometimes fried) and lots of soda. I know my friends family fits that stereotype and they're white. I also remember watch a minstrel show on youtube and they were imitating blacks. I found it very interesting that most of the stereotypes of the blacks could be applied (and often are) to white southerners.

    This sounds like the beginning of a racist joke.

    I have wondered many things in my life, but I can honestly say one thing I have never wondered about is the colour of people's gums..

    It is just a southern thing but when black people moved up north they took the love of those things with them and it became a "black" thing.

    But this whole thread reminds me of when I learned that white people's tans peeled off, I thought it just faded like black people's tans do.

    I also remember something quite comical, a friend of mine (we were around 10-13 at the time) was black and recently had his aunt around and had his hair dread locked and it. was. fucking. amazing! I asked him if it was possible it could be done to me and he just lol'd a bit at me still makes me smirk from time to time

    I once had a white friend get up the courage to ask me to touch my hair. His reaction to it was very funny he said it was soft like sheep's wool and then became embarrassed because he compared it to sheep's wool. I told him it was okay because he hair reminded me of my dog and all was good in the world.

    I am black/indian. I am for all intents and purposes black, I am like a medium/yellow tone and I burn VERY easily. I hate the summer. I didn't have sunscreen and was in a car with direct sunlight on me and my face and I broke out in a rash and eventually I burned and my arms got burned.
