I handled it like this: When DS asked me why someone on the street had "different skin", i was with my mom. I showed him how my skin is very light, my mom's is darker and his is somewhere in the middle. Then i just said "See? Some people have lighter or darker skin. That person just happens to have been born with even darker skin than Grandma" and left it at that.
