Why do black people tend to have big lips and white people seem to have small lips?

I've always wondered why that seems to be the way it is. I'm just curious is all.

    • touche lol

      It's actually because of your ancestors and where they lived. Due to most African Americans living in hot climates, their lips are larger. The large lips allow a way for your body to release unwanted heat. Since Caucasians typically lived in colder climates their lips are smaller so their body could keep as much heat as possible.

      Hope this helps

    • it seems pretty unusual to see big lips on a white person though

  • That's just like asking how come black people tend to be dark and white people tend to be pale.

    Their genetic makeup causes their lips to usually be kind of full.

  • Because no offence but white people like it that way and sometimes it's better to have a small lip.
