Roxie, Black Americans do the same thing with beauty. It's gotten to the point that I don't even compliment people anymore.

Me: Wow, you have such beautiful skin.
Re: Thanks. I have white people in my family.
Me: (thinking) WTF does that have to do with what I just said?....

It's almost as if you can't get clear, flawless skin from black people. Tyrese has gorgeous skin. If I ever meet him and he does the same thing, I'll know even more that something's wrong. It's APPARENT where he got his pretty skin from.
