Yeah, well black people can't swim. Checkmate.
@The Poonisher, why she’s a mermaid. She drowned and was reborn as part fish. God cruel since of humor
@The Poonisher, this was literally what I said the day I found out this information
@The Poonisher, Also it’s cold under water so she be wearing like 20 sweaters if she black.
@the man who farted, well the bottom half would swim just fine. The top half would just be freaking the hell out
I don’t really know where this stereotype comes from. I’m white as f*ck and I like eating things so Spicy that the pain literally makes me kind of high.
@Divided 0, the british basically
everyone: “white people can’t handle seasoning”
The british- who conquered most of the world in search for spices: “Am I a joke to you?”
@K1l, Portugal: Am I a joke to you?
@Divided 0, I don't care where it came from, honestly. Everytime I hear a joke about a white person thinking milk is too spicy, I chuckle
@Divided 0, can confirm, am cajun, spice runs through my veins like blood.
@K1l, they conquered the world for spices and didnt use any of them
@Divided 0, Update. I think I’ve burned a hole in my underwear.
@Divided 0, I've seen enough people throughout my years in restaurants/catering to know that there is a disproportionate amount of white people who dont seem to like a lot of spices in their food. Hell, my BoH manager was amazed by my coworkers guacamole she made for an event and all she did was just add cumin to it.
@K1l, have you seen British food with the exception of curry, which they stole from south/Southeast Asia it’s bland as hell
@Divided 0, im white too and like spicy food but i understand the stereotype after 1. Cooking for my parents who complain about everything being too spicy when i barely put any in and 2. Working with indians. They like spice to a degree i dont understand. One guy made some sriracha ketchup and said its not too spicy. I tried it (remember i like spice) and my mouth was on fire. It would have been ok for me but he was making it for a group of students so he definitely had to tone it down a LOT for them
@Divided 0, Same here. My dad likes spicy stuff too. And I get so little sun if I were to become pruned up from being in the water too long I’d practically be the Night King.
Yet I love spicy foods. My tolerance level goes all the way to Ghost Peppers/Carolina Reapers. Its once it reaches that I eat only a few of whatever is made with them rather than all of it.
I know this because Buffalo wild wings once made ghost pepper sauce from actual ghost peppers. (Unlike all these other fast food chains that say ghost pepper in the name of whatever they’re making but use jalapeños. For example Taco Bell’s new Carolina reaper ranch sauce. Its got a little kick to it. But no where near my tolerance level.)
The Buffalo wild wings ghost pepper sauce was good and I ate several of the wings before I felt like my airways were closing up. I finished off the wings later that night. They were good.
The spiciness level may slow me down once it reaches ghost peppers. But I still like it spicy
@K1l, considering the food culture that came from them, yes
@Divided 0, as a reflective man, I didn't know I wasn't supposed to like spicy food until college. I had no idea about my own culture. My father in particular sheltered me from how my own people were. He would dope my baby food with Tabasco and any time I lied, I got a large spoonful of Tabasco sauce. Now my Mexican side of the family looks at what I put on my food and calls me a crazy white boy. The Indian guy at that one restaurant ran back and yelled to the cook that the white guy wants 3 dots and the cook had to poke his head out and check me out just to see. They had some Damn good pork especially with the spice. That same spice on the tofu tasted like hot garbage though. Tofu is not meant to be hot. My coworker and friends got drunk and made some salsa with 3 ghost peppers in it and I loved it while they were sweating and crying. I have yet to dislike anything with Ghost Peppers in it.
To anyone familiars I recommend grabbing one of Trader Joes Smoked Ghost Pepper grinders.
Nevermind the fact that mermaids don't exist, but the melanin level of a species that lives mostly under water, would be so low, that a dark skinned mermaid doesn't make sense.
@Shodai Hokage, you can't prove mermaids don't exist. We've only explored the equivalent of 5% of the ocean. Do they look like Ariel, probably not. But there is no proof yet that mermaids don't exist.
@iLikeBigBooks, You don't have to prove something for it to be true.
Well mermaids and fish people would have to be white or at least vary pale because the water blocks UV radiation. With decreased UV there is less need for melanin in the skin. This is assuming they have similar biology to humans.
@stone42, Indeed, scientifically they would be damn near translucent, since they live at the bottom of the ocean, and assuming their top halves were susceptible to that type of adaptation. That, or they’d be a reddish, orangish color on account of the coloration of the crustaceans they’d be feeding off of, like flamingos.
@stone42, But if they have a similar biology. Does that mean the Mercury in the water and fish slowly poison them?
@stone42, are most fish not colored?
Salt is a mineral, not a spice (which is what I'm assuming this person meant by "seasoning")
And we whites mutha truckin love our minerals
Just ask MARIE
Well that’s just not true.
I honestly want her to look like Abe Sapien. Now THAT'S progressive.
@SimonPetrikov, "the little shape of water"
You can't smoke Newports underwater
Hard to swallow pills
Mermaids cant be black because black people cant swim.
@BlazingBowman, The real question is. Could the human half survive because of all the mercury I hear is in the water?
Was reminded of the common thing said about eating too much sushi.
@Seohn, the real concern is could a mermaid breed with all the chemicals in the water that turn the freaking frogs gay.
Mermaids are Greek
Well I season the absolute hell out of my food. Particularly spice, but not oh holy heck my mouth is melting spice. That's for rare ish occasion
Hold up. Ain’t you seen the sodium-loaded manatees at Walmart?
Can we swallow pills like the Bermuda triangle can to us?
Or high blood pressure
