We know that Whites/Europeans tan all the time. They use tanning beds, lotions and potions. Do you think there are any Blacks who tan? Perhaps those with light skin or even dark skin who want it slightly darker? Have you ever considered yourself as having a tan? And...if you never tan or know any Blacks that never do--have you ever known any who uses sunscreens when outside in the sun?

Some people love the darker skin. Care to share thoughts on being Black with a tan?

I don't know, maybe if you are very dark not. But I think many do. My second wife did, and she used sunscreen too.

@Steve --I was only looking at this bright sunshine and that's what entered into this head of mine. I was enjoying the warmth and it felt good to see the light of the new day. ....So you like that pic? I thought about putting a male pic, but I thought the female was much more appealing to this topic not to temp you ..Sir???. Don't let Doc raise your brow either!.... LOL!

@ Doc..stop flirting with Steve..:>) I need to keep my blogs innocent for him!

@Both--back to the blog topic--For the most part I think many blacks tan and use sunscreens! I took in a bit of sun myself today. Had fun and it's was a wonderful 4th. My family and friends left only a few hours ago... Hope yours went well too.
Thanks you two.

Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 12:40PM
My wife and I went to the Air and Water show several years ago. We took the grands, and sat out in the hot sun all day. The next day I looked like shellaced teakwood; Orange Glow. In my wife, no change -- still beautiful!

Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 1:40PM
Ouch! that sound like it may be a little sun burn. Your story reminded me too of some friends of mine that went to Orlando for a week. You should see them now. Tan with a capital T! They look great...even the 4-year is tanned...Laughing!

"Deep Red" I think I can work that title......mmmmmm?
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 4:43PM
Clark that's humorous....
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 4:44PM
Hey Clark, I guess we have something else in common. I am in the sun a lot, I wear a shirt and hat, but my neck and chest (where exposed) tend to turn red.
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 7:36PM
Steve Williams
Well reddish brown.
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 7:38PM
Steve Williams
Lookee Miisrael, I have made 100 on your innocent blog.

Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 7:44PM
Steve Williams
Thanks Steve for 100 HITS! iT'S still going...I guess it might make 130!...I'm feeling it! If everybody pitches in we do it... Du..ugh! I reckon...
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 8:20PM
Well Ms.Bee will make her appearance day after tomorrow so I think 130 is a bit on the conservative side.
Tuesday, July 6th 2010 at 9:05PM
Steve Williams

Putting suntan lotion on a lady's back is fun! But sometimes my hands have a tendency to wander, it is like they have a mind of theirs own. Ha!
Friday, July 9th 2010 at 7:03AM
Steve Williams
Okay...you're allowed to wander, but only a little bit.....

There's been a lot of sunshine and heat lately...I think there's more heat on this site than I've ever seen. Of course, I'm passing the sun tan lotion. Some of us are turning really dark. I hope we can heal from sun burns. We should stay in unity.
Tuesday, August 10th 2010 at 2:59PM
This posting reminds me of something our now First lady said during the elections, "IF MY HUSBAND WINS THIS ELECTION WE WILL BE THE 'CAMELOT' IN THE WHITEHOUSE, BUT WITH A T-A-N". lol (smile)
