Anonymous asked: "(Apologies in advance if someone's already said this.) "Olive" skin is traditionally defined as skin with yellow or green undertones, and is categorized on the Fitzpatrick scale as Level IV. If you look up maps of the world based on skin tone, Level IV is in the 15-25 range (in most maps' legends). Maps vary, of course, but by definition, "olive" skin is most predominant in the Middle East, southern Asia, Middle America, and yes, the Mediterranean. Jennifer Lawrence is roughly Level III."
Thank you for the information. Personally, I don’t see how entire races can be sorted into a scale of six parts of which potentially four accommodate white skin. (The primary example that Wikipedia gives for Type IV is Caucasian Mediterranean; all right then.)
