How do people with dark skin tan differently than people with light skin?

Tanning with Darker Skin vs. Tanning with Pale Skin

People with naturally darker skin are generally better adapted to being out in the sun or in a tanning bed longer than people with pale skin are. Dark skin is caused by a continuous production of melanin even without exposure to the sun. People with darker skin can still get sunburn from spending too much time in a tanning bed, but not as easily as those with pale skin. The melanin already in the dark skin will protect it better than light skin will be protected.
