Check out the Biracial Twins:One is White and the Other is Black
These two have been facing a lot of questions from people around.Some even think they are just bestfriends,but the truth is Marcia who has fair skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair takes after her Caucasian mother while Millie who has dark skin, brown eyes, and black hair takes after her Jamaican-descent father.
Experts say that the phenomena, although unique, occur in one in 100 fraternal births.
Their mother calls the girls a ‘one-in-a-million’ miracle.
The girls shared their story of their race-defying appearances in the April issue of National Geographic.
The twins, of Birmingham, England, were born on July 3, 2008.
Their parents, a biracial couple, said they ‘didn’t give a toss’ of what people might think of their interracial relationship and brought the same approach towards their mixed race children
They are just too cute😍😍😍
At first the parents thought their daughters – who they gave the mixed names of Millie Marcia Madge Biggs, the other Marcia Millie Madge Biggs – were identical as they shared similar skin tones.
At about 10-months their skin began to change into more distinct colors.
‘The change happened with Millie first. She went darker and darker,’ father Michael Biggs said to Good Morning America.
‘We never worried about it; we just accepted it,’ Michael said to National Geographic.
From their infancy, the girls were scrutinized for their difference appearances.
‘When they were first born I would be pushing them in the pram, and people would look at me and then look at my one daughter and then look at my other daughter. And then I’d get asked the question: “Are they twins?”‘ mother Amanda said.
She’d respond ‘Yes’ to which the reply would always be ‘But one’s white and one’s black’.
‘Yes. It’s genes,’ she said.
