They just look darker because they wear darker colored clothing.

The white people might look darker in the Boston area, but this is cancelled out by the dark skin people looking more pale.

Anyways, we all live here, so we didn't need a picture of people to remind us what people in Boston look like. We see ourselves in the mirror every day.
But you have never been to Kansas, have you?

Honestly I'm surprised that some people hate it when someone says they look darker. What's the matter?

FWIW, the Northeast seems to have much less blond haired people. But skin color? Never noticed.

I read the title of this thread and thought you were talking about the Boston sense of humor. Yes, there is a darker sense of humor in Boston.
