Let me just say, I feel your pain. I'm multiracial, but I went to a school where everyone was either full on black or white. I was an outcast if there ever was one. lol I've accepted it and love my uncommon skin now. I'm sure you're very beautiful WHATEVER color you are. We're all aliens depending on the backdrop.
What really worries me is that maybe all of the sun has made your skin unhealthy. Start wearing sunblock, and maybe exfoliate? I'm in college so I don't have a lot of money to spend on stuff, what I do when my skin is dull is I mix: 1 cup of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoon of honey, and 3 tablespoon of olive oil and gently exfoliate my skin, no more than twice a week. I love to use vitamin E or aloe vera on my skin to moisturize everyday. Good Luck.
