The fact is that it is much easier, even on digital, to get a good image of a lighter skinned person due to the fact that you won't underexpose the hair. Also the article shows professional shots in one hand, and snapshots in others. That is a apple to oranges comparison. Heck, even a snapshot to say, a dedicated amateur is a big leap in quality.
Now no one is shocked that Minilabs in the 70s and 80s did a bad job. They would screw up most images.
