Hello, I am not sure how to understand these lyrics from Peter Tosh's song "African" :
"'Cause if your 'plexion high, high, high
If your 'plexion low, low
And if your 'plexion in between, you're an African

I suppose it could be translated by "si tu es noir/foncé de peau"/ "si tu es clair de peau" ?
or is it the other way round ?
