I swear, that phrase makes me angry.

Now that I've got your attention:

I had a thought. Those of you who read regularly realize that I have many thoughts, few of which make sense.

Anyway. I think this one makes a bit of sense.

I tend to stay cold. People would tell me, "Oh, you're black, you're supposed to absorb heat!". We'd giggle, and I'd continue to freeze my ass off.

My friends would complain about the heat, and I would say to them, "Oh, you're white, you're supposed to reflect heat!". Again, we'd giggle, and they would be hot while I was cold, or perhaps even comfortable.

I thought about this today and realized why it made sense that black people were "allergic to the cold," as I've heard many of my friends say.

Black absorbs heat. That means while we're taking it in, we're not putting any off. Therefore our extremities stay cold, because they're not giving off heat. If black were to give off heat, then we would be nice and toasty, as there would be a field of warmth following us about.

White reflects heat. Obviously this means the reverse of the above paragraph, and since white people are always reflecting heat, they have a nice little cloud of warmth following them.

This explains why every white person I touch is nice and toasty, while every black person I touch is cold and frigid. It also explains why everyone touches me, because I'm taking their extra heat, which I gladly accept.

I guess the proper scientific terms for this are endothermic and exothermic. Black people would be endothermic, because they absorb energy. White people would be exothermic, because they release it.

Have you ever heard of a product of an endothermic reaction being heat? Maybe I'm forgetful or ignorant, but I haven't.

Ok, enough about why I'm cold all the time.

Edit: I've been asked about the really light black people, or the white people that are always cold and the black people that are always hot.

There are such things called anomalies... Or people that are black, but don't know it, and vice-versa. It's happened. *nod*

I think u think to much LOL
Deep thoughts by you, ikimashokie. A side seldom seen, now I know why LOL. I can neither agree nor disagree with your perception. Expect I don't think it is a black or white thing as much a blood thing. As in not enough blood getting here or there, as in maybe not to much blood getting to your brain right now LOL.

Not a scientist, so I can't say one way or the other. Although I can say that unless it's really warm I'm usually cold. But that may just be because I'm small. heh.

Well an answer to your edit could be because of poor circulation. An ex-co-worker of mine was ALWAYS cold no matter how hot we had it because ever since she was little she had very bad circulation.

i think you're the anomoly
being exothermic would make one feel cold, not warm. giving of heat makes you cold. gicing off heat means the air around you is colder than your skin, which again would give a cold feeling. touching ice makes your finger feel cold, while your finger's heat is absorbed by the ice. (if it was alive, it'd feel warm! lol)
