I'm 100% Pakistanian, but I've been in America all my life. But my family's skin isn't tan as other pakistanians? My sisters are almost freaking pale. But we are all close to the white color.. Why is that? I'm not saying I don't like my color but I'm just wondering why our color is like that but other Pakistanians isn't?
Why is my skin color different from my own race?

Because it just isn't. My whole family has really light skin and I have extremely dark skin1
don't pakistanians live out in pakistan? you know, where the sun beats down relentlessly?
you live in america, and even if you do go outside frequently, the climate is different.0
I'm Indian and quite a few of my friends that are from northern India are just as pale as Caucasians. It's not uncommon. My mom's pale as fuck too she looks European. I'm brown though it's so unfair :p But yeah it's not uncommon.0

well its simply down to genetics. Pakistanis don't all look the same. The variation could be due to having some lighter skin individuals in your family tree, or perhaps its something environmental, like the amount of sunlight you get. I'm sure people get much more sun in pakistan than they do in some places in the USA2
What the hell kinda Pakistani are you? First, you described yourself as "Pakistanian". Second, do you not have any idea how many light/pale Pakistanis there are out there? Especially the Pathans and all those from the Northern regions. Almost all the South Asians like Pakistanis and Indians from the Northern regions like Kashmir are light, similar to whites.0

Because Pakistani is not a race... It's nationality1
