Actually, I have a good sense of humor and can be quite goofy at times. For me to find something humorous it has to be funny... You know, whit and good timing? Not to mention no 'alterior motive'... This comment about 'superblackness' is exactly why I knew you meant it as much more than a light hearted, albeit, not funny, joke. BTW, there is no Black-land. We are African. Melanin content determines 'super-blackness', and in that arena I'm defiinately not in the 'super' category. I doubt you would agree that there are people who are less 'Black'(African)' because of their behavior, interests, and/or beliefs. So the concept of 'super-blackness', in the way you meant it, is just as irrational. You may need to be a little less transparent to be considered funny by me.

I kinda take issues like colourism(oppression based on a colour caste system) seriousely because it is the interests of African people everywhere to do so... Go figure...

Skin colour is believed to be determined by up to seven different genes working together.

If a woman is of mixed race, her eggs will usually contain a mixture of genes coding for both black and white skin.

Similarly, a man of mixed race will have a variety of different genes in his sperm. When these eggs and sperm come together, they will create a baby of mixed race.

But, very occasionally, the egg or sperm might contain genes coding for one skin colour. If both the egg and sperm contain all white genes, the baby will be white. And if both contain just the versions necessary for black skin, the baby will be black.



Some body adopted...lol

The term mulatto does not bother me at all. I am mixed (Irish, Black and Native American) Half Breed and all those other terms are just disrespectful...shows the jealousy on the part on who is saying it.


fro Jealous of what? Of having european blood....or the "skin color" of the europeans/arabs who committed one of the most horrodous crimes in human history? That's that color-stroke massa mentality at it's best...successfully penetrated in the minds of those who think that ANYONE would be jealous of descendants of white MONSTERS....how arrogant! Despite the propaganda...white is NOT RIGHT! And by the way, we ALL [African Americans] got a little bit of "massa's" tinge in our skins....and massa's blood in our mud [i.e. system]...NOTHING TO BE PROUD OF! fro

Sociologists will examine what impact siblings of different color will face when the reach their adolescent and adult years, employment, career, marriage and anything else that falls under the human kaleidoscope.


Maybe if one looked mixed race and the other looked more of an African decent their life experiences may be remarkable. But I don't see these two children having that much of a different existence.



From the picture one child looks Black or Colored and the other white; what happens should the "white" child decide to cross over and deny her parentage?


One is darker, but in my opinion, she doesn't look Black. But you do have a point, I suppose the white sibling could grow up and reject her parents because their skin is darker. But then again, they darker sibling can grow up and do a Nicole Ritchie. Nicole grew up in a Black home but seems to embrace all things white. Roll Eyes

A British documentary series called "SEVEN-UP " followed the lives of a half dozen British kids once every seven years from the time they were the ages of 7,14,21,28,35...... It would be interesting to see the same extended to those 2 siblings.
