"the only different between african-american and caucasian skin is the gene that puts out the amount of melanin"
No. There's more difference than a single gene between my skin color and the skin color of my brother. There`s about 5 gene pairs inherited per parent (give or take, depending on race). The combined 10 gene pairs have thousands of combinations that can alter the appearance of skin.
