    Question Mongoloid Skin Color Ranges?

    Why does it go from brownish in the artic to pale yellow in China/Korea/Japan then against to brownish in Southeast Asia?

    Were the original mongoloid types brownish?

    The Inuit have retained their darker pigmentation due to the steady supply of Vitamin D they receive from a staple diet of fish.

    The North-East Asians are lighter than their southern neighbours probably due to the fact that a higher latitude demands a lighter skin tone to acquire the vitamin D necessary

    there is no designated skin colour to the "original mongols", because is only a mongoloid now, and the skin colours that they have evolved into
