The white races get skin cancer from the sun because guess what, white races don't belong in the sun- they belong in the north- like in europe- where they have less skin cancer (I'm talking about stuff like SCC and BCC which are related to sun exposure).
The highest amout of skin cancer is the white people of Australia- the indogenous people of Australia of course don't get skin cancer.
Not everything good comes from colonization...
