    Human phenotypes, like just about every other organisms phenotype on the planet, cover a vast spectrum of colour. Nearly every species can go from the whitest albinism to blackest melanism.

    Why isn't he receiving treatment when he's clearly mentally unwell?

    I get that - I just never equated dark skin times with purple, purples just purple to me!

    never seen any real person who I thought were verging on looking purple! can some examples be linked??

    Man, I'll know I have achieved something respectable in the gym the day Purple Aki asks to feel me up.

    so not purple - just really black, which isn't purple, its' just really black :confused:

    that's why I'm not getting the purple reference in his name and the claim that calling him purple aki is racist?! thought it might have been his dapper shell suit was the source of the nickname!

    WHAT?! right I'm away to have my eyes looked at. I have never in all my days seen a person or a colour so dark it was blue (or purple)

    Probably looks purple in some pics because the camera misinterprets the colours/overexposure making blacks look purple. Not sure why people think there's a race of purple people out there. He's just really black.

    Purple Aki used to frequent my home town a lot 10+ years ago, St Helens, he's notorious round these parts. I think he got banned, not sure though.

    'Really black Aki' doesn't really roll off the tongue like 'Purple Aki'

    Good ol' Purps, legend of the North West.

    I heard the 'Purple' in his name was reference to his tongue which is supposedly a very purple colour.
