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!

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
