I just want to add here, for the sake of conversation, that customarily Caucasian, "white" people can and do become quite "red" in skin color after prolonged exposure to the sun, particularly in the middle of North America. I've seen it happen to nearly all male Swedes, for instance, after they've farmed many years.

However, brown hair will turn far more blond in prolonged sun exposure unless there is a head covering worn, in which case brown hair turns darker.

Just saying, could be...that the "red" man is "red" because the lifestyles are mostly, predominantly outside for full day-hours. "Red" is what happens to the skin if you're initially Caucasian (other than people like me who are redhaired and nearly opaquely white skinned, in which case we just burn and stay colorless).

He had prominent brow ridges and we all called him Apeman. In the summer after a couple of months on the Gulf in only a pair of shorts he was colored dark bronze red and all that hair was purest white. He was a strange looking fellow. He was a southern boy, of course, named Bobby Joe.
