My daughter got a keloid after a body piercing and the dermatolgist told me people of African descent get these. I didn't say anything, but when I did my ancestry research after that, I found I am related to Anthony Van Salee. That is how she got it. When my older brother was in college many years ago he said that it takes 17 generations to clear one black person's blood from one's genetics. From Wikpedia: Persons of African descent are at increased risk of keloid occurrences. My Family: Concubine, his second wife, and Admiral Jan Jansen Van Harlem, MY 11th GREAT GRANDPARENTS.
