I am doing a study on melanin and conductivity but I cannot find the answer to this question anywhere. Do light complected black or biracial people have eumelanin or pheomelanin? or both?

Pheomelanin is associated with paler skin, while eumelanin predomominates in people with darker skin — this is influenced by alleles of the MC1R gene Swope and Abdel-Malek, 2018, NIH article on MC1R.
