    He is darker, isn't he?
    Why that is important enough to describe in detail, though, I have no idea!
    Isn't it sort of obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes?

    Besides, Tiger Woods is just partly African-American. It's sort of funny how people instantly become "black" if they've got more than olive skin and a few facial features that are african because of some relative down the line
    Like Halle Berry. Come on. I'm darker than that if I stand in the sun for twelve minutes.

    Um, isn't Wesley snipes "full" Black, and Tiger woods half?

    If there is a Caucasian girl, named Carly and a Korean girl, named Kathy and you say...

    Carly is Whiter than Silly, or Kathy is Koreaner(lol) than Silly.

    I wouldn't get offended at all.

    Ethnically speaking, I am only half of each, or a hybrid of both, regardless, I think it would be foolish for me to say that because I am half Korean, I consider myself full Korean, or even though I am half Caucasian, I am White.

    When we are discussing race/ethnicity. Why would someone get their panties in a twist over stating a really obvious observation.

    Yeah, it's a matter of measuring the amount of reflected light of both of their skins, the person who's skin reflects the least amount of light is the blackest. It's physics!

    As a white man, I am supremely qualified to shut up about this topic.

    NONSENSE! What good is white privilege if we can't use it to talk about stuff we can't understand.

    Oh, I talk about stuff I can't understand all the time. It's talking about things that pisses people off, starts rumors, and tarnishes your reputation for no good reason that try to avoid.

    Well, he is (in terms of race/ethnicity). The phrasing of "blacker" is kind of awkward though and seemingly irrelevant. Given the racial relations in the U.S. it might raise a few eyebrows, but it's technically correct.
