Skin color is a coping strategy.

Skin color changes varies with the environmental conditions one lives in. Melanin is due to biological evolution and it is evident as people living near the equator have darker skin compared to people living near the artic. High skin pigmentation offers protection from skin cancer and sunburns. Body size and shape also changes due to environmental conditions and pressures. Modern man adapts with the environmental conditions as they migrate to different environmental conditions. Racism should therefore be a thing of the past and people should embrace diversity. People do not choose their skin color rather environmental conditions shapes skin coloring. White supremacy should not exist as if tables turned and the whites lived near the equator, the skin color would slowly change. There is need to address skin coloring to eradicate the misconceptions on skin color.
