Obv melanin for the actual reason but for me it's cause we are from afghan and many people are at least fair or close to white.

You know what's up. So many pakistanis in my old school used to compared themselves when in fact they were all pretty dark lol. All the dudes I knew wanted very white Indian/Pakistani girls when they were dark themselves lol.

I dunno, I hear people say similar sort of things in some black communities, all seems pretty stupid to me though.....

Is it something to do with the workers being outside and getting tanned hard, whilst the rich stayed in and got an indoor tan and therefore stayed really pale?

Did you think all Pakistanis would be just one colour?

I love how in the thread title you have to clarify that white is a colour.

I'm not Pakistani, but I know for fijians everyone wants to compete against each other with skin colour and see who has the lightest skin, i see it as them being ashamed to be the colour they are and that's purely influenced by the ****ty sort of things they see on social media. dumb #teamlightskin / teamdarkskin. It's just stupid, i remember one time my cousin came up to me, pulled my arm up and was like "hahah im lighter than you" and I was like okay. honest don't see what they think is wrong with having dark skin???
lmao that was proper irrelevant sozzzz

Many Pakistanis have origins from neighboring countries such as from western Iran and even Afghanistan. A common race in Pakistan that originated from Afghanistan is the pashtun race and I know many Pakistanis who claim they are part or full pashtun.

Most famous Pakistani of pashtun descent is Imran Khan
