He's got most of the physiological characteristics of a black person, except the pigment.

but he doesnt have a skin pigment so it is all theoretical isn't it. he is white coming from a black family. You can not say he is black. You can in fact say he is a complete ****. Look at him again going on about random **** and bein wrong.

Surely white would assume he has skin pigment too, though? He's neither black nor white in color, but he is "black". Just like a white person with a tan is still white.

Anyway, I don't like him as a housemate either.

That had nothing to do with race.
Darnell is just a pig.

Oh I see. I think he was just a bit angry with the way she treated him, but he did act in the wrong and i think his chances of winning may have gone...
I don't know, he wasn't favourite to win anyway, Rachel is. A lot of people identified with his explanation of his frustrations later on. Also they made up today.

For crying out loud guys. Darnell isn't "white" per se, he isn't caucasian! He's afro-Caribbean! He's albino!!

Rachel to win? :confused: She is another fake one, no way for her to win. I think it's going to be really open this year

Saying it's "going to be really open this year" is just a euphemism for "The characters this year sucked.". I think Rex should win because he's given a lot of entertainment without stepping too much into downright unfunniness. If people win Big Brother just because they're "nice people" which is, essentially, all Kat and Rachel are, well then might as well wave a jubilant goodbye.

Darnell is black - he has genes from black people, he is albino, no matter what your racial background is if you are albino then you have white, pale skin.

If Darnell had kids they would have a higher chance of having normal dark skin instead of being albino

To say Darnell is black is paradoxial: he is supposedly black, but he isn't at all. If are addressing the notion of colour, then Darnell must be white - he's albino after all. I think it's more accurate to classify him as an albino African / Carribean (or whichever race he is).
