The Dad says: "I"m sure she"s my kid ... I just don"t know why she"s blond." Can anyone explain this one?

From the article jayme21 linked to:

[quote]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.[/quote]

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!

Just looks like an average African Albino to me.

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).

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

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.

@ Seastone. yeah I agree. if this family were to have their child in a country that were so afraid of things that weren`t normal this child would probably have been killed at birth.
If you know what I`m talking about

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.

Did the dad not ask for a paternity test? helloooooooo. why not destroy what all of us are thinking, before doing this article?

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.

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

Also...*that* much difference? I`m not convinced about that.

I wonder if a white woman has ever had a black baby by gene mutation or whatever happened here?

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".

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.

She`s adorable, and it`s good that she has a family that will love her and take care of her no matter what she looks like. They`ll just have to make sure to buy extra-strong sunscreen for her if they go home to visit their family in Nigeria.

I guess it doesn`t matter the color of the baby`s skin or if it really is their baby or not. The fact is that they love that baby, no matter what, and that is all that anyone can ask for.

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.

she has the same chin as her brother, they stated they didn`t have any white heritage that they knew of but it still could be there. I see many resemblances with her sister and brother.

Mmmk CrackrJak...Allow me if you will to do the whole verse..

"F*ck skin color, everybodys blue, then what would you bigots do?
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!!!

Crucible, they`re black. Unless the woman was raped or is ridiculously white-ized, there`s no need for a paternity test.

@ 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.`"

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.

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?"

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"

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.
Viva la anomaly.

Hate me all you want, but I would say that since it`s a fact that white skin is an evolved trait, maybe it`s, oh I don`t know, a natural mutation of that gene?

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).

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
