I was told that African Americans are prone to pimples when they eat chocolate. Is this true?

I have a question that I hope you can answer. I was told by an associate at work that African-Americans are prone to pimples when they eat chocolate. I was informed that eating chocolate and the development of pimples had no correlation and told the person as much. Their reply was that African-Americans have “different skin tones” and that considering that I was white I would not know of such things. Is this the babbling BS that I think it is or is there some shred of truth behind this? Sorry for wasting your time on this question but the situation has been bothering me for quite some time. Thank you.

You are right. Chocolate does not cause pimples for anyone including African Americans. Unfortunately, overactive oil glands and hormones at work in the body cause pimples.

Talk to your dermatologist about any pimples you have.
