    Before anyone says "It`s The Sun and therefore untrustworthy" this story has been reported by a lot of other news sites.

    For instance the BBC.

    This story was on Digg, and most of the comments on there were like "LOL THE MOM CHEATED WITH A WHITE DUDE."
    Even if she did, there is *no way* the baby would still be that light. It`s a genetic mutation.

    This isn`t the first case. There`s a "white" "black" guy who does public speaking on race-related stuff. It was on 20/20 or some other news magazine show a few years back. I`m looking for a link. Both his parents look "black"; he looks caucasian. His genetics were matched to both parents. whacky stuff

    Your child can be as dark as your darkest ancestor, or a light as your lightest ancestor. Someone obviously has some white ancestry. Could be the mother, or the father (which might not be the guy in the article).

    Just because something has never happened before (ie all the scientists going "Buh buh, they must MUST have white ancestory in order for this to occur! This is poppycock!) dosn`t mean it CAN`T happen. Jeeze scientists... hullo...New things happen all the time. This could be the very first child of a whole new genetic varient of human.

    Vitiligo in it`s most extreme form here. Saw a couple of people with this skin affliction when I was in the military. Perhaps this is the makes way of telling both white AND black that...."Guess what, you are all PEOPLE and color is an illlusion"

    Wow, after my post i read the commeents....Has no one ever heard of or even seen Vitiligo? This is a skin condition that does not only change the skin`s pigment, but can also change the color of eyes. this baby should be considered lucky as the cases i have seen usually involve a patchy mixmatch of the skin pigmentation. this is unfortunate since humans tend to pick on those that are different than them.

    For all you ICP haters out there, a verse goes perfect for this...

    "F*CK skin color, everybodys blue, then what would all you bigots do?"

    Steelgrid: If it wasn`t skin color it`d be something equally stupid like the shape of someone`s ears, Their hair, The nose, etc...

    There are wars in Africa right now over subtle shades of skin and ethnicity that most people here wouldn`t notice the differences.

    It`s insane what groups of people will hate each other for nowadays, Like the color of one`s clothes or if they even own an Iphone. This world has leapt head first into the abyss, Willingly.

    @ CJ Here`s a janjaweed song printed from Harper`s magazine:

    "The women said, “The blood of the blacks runs like water. We take their goods and we chase them from our area and our cattle will be in their land. The power belongs to the Arabs, and we will kill you until the end, you blacks. We have killed your God.” They also insulted the women from the village, saying, `You are gorillas, you are black, and you are badly dressed.`"

    Instead of your tone, they`de hate hate your size, thats why we must poke out all your eyes!!"

    Yeah, ICP still has it right and it is highlighted by your point. Extgending the disciminations of Africa, in some tribes of India, an albino hermy exposing themselves is a curse worth killing yourself over and people actually pay roving bands of white hermys to NOT expose themselves......humans are funny funny crapsacks!!!

    All babies are born with low levels of melatonin which is the hormone responsible for pigment all over the body (hair, eyes, skin). As babies age, they produce more melatonin which adds pigment over time.. So, give the baby a few weeks and who knows what skin-tone she`ll have.

    Second.... The genetics in this case are not complicated. Angela`s been steppin` out.

    Even if she was, that would still be an unusual result. Do you know of any dark-skinned black-haired people who`ve had pale-skinned blonde-haired blue-eyed children, regardless of what the other parent looks like? Especially as the child is not albino.

    Mix-up at the hospital? DNA testing would answer that question.

    Unexpected "white" ancestors? People often don`t know every detail of their biological family tree even if they know every detail of their family tree. Some people cheat. Some of those people are women. Some of those women become pregnant and tell the man they`re with that he`s the biological father when in fact he isn`t.

    Random mutation? People`s skin got a lot lighter in Europe in the past and that happened often enough to become a universal trait in the area. Maybe it wasn`t a gradual lightening over many generations.

    What makes you think it`s anything new? Group hatred goes back at least as far as recorded history, probably much further. I expect it predates humanity, with different packs of pre-human hominids hating each other because they do, with no real reason other than the hate. All that`s needed is an identifier to tell "them" from "us".

    Are you sure about that? You`re not confusing it with melanin?

    What a pretty baby, though. she does look just like a doll, with her long curly blonde hair.

    Im very blonde naturally, and when i was little my hair was like pure white. But when i was born, i didnt have hair like this, it was kinda dark. So this IS really weird, in a lot of ways.

    Firstly, even if she cheated, you`d get a mixed race baby, surely you guys realise that?
    Secondly, colour mutations are fairly common in the animal world, two black and tan gsds quite commonly produce white or pale pups with no albinism. Corn snakes now come in thousands of colours because of two wild type parents producing different babies. It`s not really surprising that the same can happen in humans.

    Shut it people not beleving because it is the sun and read the comments! This is in more then the sun, so look it up.

    While I am at it, black albino babys don`t look like that and sleeping with a white guy wouldn`t do it ether, which both you would know if you just read the dam article itself.

    On a funny note: Ben told yesterday how he was so shocked when Nmachi was born, he even JOKED: "Is she mine?"
    Yea right... joked... bet the wife didn`t take the little joke too well.

    This can be caused by white ancestry and having white skin genes remember in biology there are 6 genes which determine colour but u can have 2 white and 4 black and come out very black. But same came happen other way have 4 white 2 white skin pigmentation genes and come out very white. So they could have white ancestry they dont know of and each have 2 white skin pigmentation genes each meaning child could have gotten 4

    This is awesome. Also, it`s clear that the baby has the features (shape of the nose and eyes, as far as I can tell) of African descent, so it`s got to just be a coloring mutation (although it must be complex).

    From the article jayme21 linked to:

    In Europeans, it is possible - if highly unusual - that African DNA from those who were brought to the continent as Roman slaves joins in two fair parents to produce a dark-skinned child.

    This is a fffuuu moment for me. Most of the people of African origin who came to Britain during the Roman occupation were not slaves - they were soldiers. Also some merchants, artisans, etc, etc. Slavery was not at all racial in Rome (the idea of race didn`t even exist then) and many Romans were African. Parts of Africa had been in the Republic of Rome for ages before the invasion of Britain.

    fffuuu at people splodging history from one society onto a completely different society 1500 years earlier!
