Different tones of black skin.?

I know that Black Africans have different tones of skin color depending on where they live.

But could you tell me where the darker ones and the not so dark ones come from in Africa?

Which regions have darker skinned people and which have lighter skinned people?

(I am not talkin about Arabs in the north either)

    Sudan, Senegal, Ghana, Kenya- Darker skin tones in general

    Ethiopia, Somalia, Egypt- Lighter-medium skin tones

    These are generalities. Factors that influence this is of course diaspora and interbreeding.

    To the one who said people from Ghana are dark, I'll have to discredit that. i lived there for three years of my life. Some people are as light as Alicia Keys and some darker than Seal. The majority are very medium toned to caramel. They are in no way considered a "dark" country...

    Ethiopians seem to have lighter skin and straighter hair, but I don't really know many true Africans. I know some black folk though....

    we all was once one color but after so many years of white slavemasters raping female slaves and then now brothas chasing white women its damn near everywhere. but like pac said "the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. the darker the flesh, then the deeper the root."
