    I have noticed that in some RJ profiles, especially white guys, they have their photos in black and white or in serpia tone. Is it because they want to appear less white than in their normal color photos??? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Skin blemishes and marks are less noticeable in b&w and sepia tone.

    I doubt that there's one single explanation for the presence of black and white/sepia photos on white men's profiles. icon_rolleyes.gif

    If anything, black and white/sepia effects don't really darken a photo. For me, brightness seems unchanged or somewhat intensified.

    That's probably true, especially those freckles on the body. icon_rolleyes.gif

    They want to seem deep and artsy.

    Of course not. Every other race wants to be whiter, so that clearly isn't the reason.
