White baby born to Black Parents - July 20, 2010, 04:50 PM

The Body Odd - White baby born to black parents


One of the things you just don't see to often.





Melissa Dahl writes: A Nigerian couple just got quite a surprise: Angela Ihegboro gave birth to a white baby with blue eyes and curly blond hair, reports The Sun, a British tabloid.
"Actually, the first thing I did was look at her and say, 'What the flip?'" says Ben Ihegboro, the baby's father, who came to Britain with his wife five years ago and now lives in South London with their two other children. He says infidelity is out of the question. "My wife is true to me. Even if she hadn't been, the baby still wouldn't look like that."
The baby, which the couple named Nmachi, is not an albino, doctors say. Ben Ihegboro says his mother has a fairer shade of skin, "but we don't know of any white ancestry. We wondered if it was a genetic twist. But even then, what is with the long curly blond hair?"
It's an unusual case, but it's not unheard of. Skin and eye color are determined by melanin, and the amount or type of melanin is controlled by about a dozen different genes, as Bryan Sykes, an Oxford University professor of human genetics, told the tabloid. For the Ihegboros, Nmachi's blue eyes and blond hair must be the result of a trace of white ancestry from each of her parents' genes.
"In mixed race humans, the lighter variant of skin tone may come out in a child -- and this can sometimes be startlingly different to the skin of the parents," Sykes told The Sun. "This might be the case where there is a lot of genetic mixing, as in Afro-Caribbean populations. But in Nigeria there is little mixing."
Nmachi and her family have good company: In 2008, a set of twins -- one black, one white -- was born to a German couple (the mother is black, the father is white). Also that year, a British mixed race couple gave birth to their second set of twins with different colored skin. And just last week, the British tabloid the Mirror reported that a mixed-race woman gave birth to a set of twins -- she was so sure the babies would be have different skin tones that she nicknamed them Salt and Pepper. (The mother is dark-skinned, and the father is white.)

There was a guy in my company with an African father and a white mother. He was as white as I am but had blonde hair and blue eyes. Last name was Shokunbi. Kept a framed copy of a DNA test to prove it.

It's a semi-Albino baby. Happens in the black community from time to time.

Usually freaks everyone out and makes the Father want to strangle the Mother until Doctors step in an explain, that in the absence of melanin - a occasional genetic fluke with blacks - you get blonde hair, pale skin, grey/blue eyes since most all black people carry "recessive white trait" genes.

It's just those genetic markers to activate melanin production, dark curly hair, and brown eyes didn't kick in.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

The doctors said this wasn't an albino baby though.

Same with my younger brother. He's 5 shades lighter than me. Lighter than me, Mom, and Dad although he has Dad's features.

We used to call him Bootleg Chico Debarge and Whitey to infuriate him.
