The children of the sun do not belong anywhere outside of Africa. They were not designed to exist where the sun is not very intense. It is one of the reasons they perform so poorly in Europe and North America. The fact that they avoid the sun like the plague to try and be a shade lighter is not helping matters.

Perform so poorly how? Black Africans in the U.S. and Europe usually out-perform native whites.

Children of the sun,LOL??? Now that's a hot one. We don't avoid the sun to be a shade lighter, it's just that black people don't need tans like most white people do.

I think this is not surprising since multiple sclerosis is a bone disease and vitamin D plays a big role in making the bones healthy. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fo...
