Biracial twins - Their beauty against racism

Meet biracial twins with different skin colors

Biracial twins with different skin tones have made waves on the internet. And the main reason for such mixed twins trending is because this is a rare occurrence. But even so, it seems this phenomenon happens more often than we can imagine. Their startling differences attract so much attraction from all over the world. Some people consider this a rare miracle.

Now, much as one would expect bi-racial twins born of black and white parents to have a mix of both skin colors and probably have similar skin tones, one takes the pigmentation of the white parent, and the other the black parent.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

The latest adorable pair of twins with different skin colors who took the internet by storm is Kalani and Jarani Dean. At the time, this pair was 9-months-old. They were featured on Today. Kalani has lighter skin like her mother, Whitney Meyer (white) and Jarani, brown-skinned like the father, Thomas Dean (black). And when they would go out with their parents, people would gawk at them.

Their pictures made rounds on twitter. Here is what Meyer had to say about the rare traits of their mixed race twins:

“Kalani was as white as can be. I was just in denial, because you know the odds of this? I would never think I would have a black and white twin. That’s why I asked if she was albino, because she was just so white.”

Dean added:

“I was like, ‘Yeah, she’s a little light,’ but I thought maybe babies are that way when they’re first born. But then a couple of minutes later, her sister came out a little darker. In a million years, I never thought I’d have a girl with blue eyes. I didn’t think I could pull that one-off!”

So, what the odds of an interracial couple bearing twins with different skin color?

Apparently, this happens between one in 350 to one in 400. This applies to biracial twins. As for any pair of twins having different skin tones, its one in 500.

Lucy and Maria Aylmer (pictured) are the other set of such twins. They have been turning lots of heads in the UK. Because of their differences in skin color and hair color, people have mistaken them for friends. It’s hard to believe these 2 are twins; or sisters for that matter. They were born to a white father (Vince) and a half-Jamaican mom (Donna). At the time of their birth, their midwife was speechless, to say the least.

Lucy is a fair-skinned red-head while her sister Maria is dark-skinned with black curly hair. You can’t confuse these two as they don’t even look like they have the same biological parents.

What does race mean in the case of black and white twins:

Rare as they are, black and white twins have been highlighted on the internet quite often lately. The media has taken notice of them. So, does race and skin color even have meaning in such scenarios? These twins in one family make racism seem ridiculous and the issue of race irrelevant.

Kian and Remee Hodgson were born in 2006 to Kylee Hodgson and Remi Horder, who both had white mothers and black fathers. Kian (black skin tone) and Remee (white skin tone) look like different race twins.

Looking at the above set of rare twins it seems like these occurrences happen more often. In fact, there is an interracial couple, Alison Spooner and Dean Durrant, who had black and white twins twice (7 years apart). They were an internet sensation when they got the second pair.

Then we have mixed race sisters, Sharon Brown and Sonia Harris who each had a set of biracial twins with different skin pigmentation. There have been cases of twins looking too much alike in their features, but with a difference in skin color. So looking at this, isn't the concept of race a thoroughly flawed and stupid concept?

We know too well that these siblings have more than one ethnicity in them. So, much as one appears while and the other one black, to them, their identity is not black or white. It would be weird even for their parent to call one twin black and the other white. These aren’t twins of different races. They have mixed ancestry.

The thing is, today, we can't even anyone is of a pure race. If you look at your ancestral trees, you might find you may look white, but your great-grandfather was mixed (latino-white). Like the neo-Nazi Craig Cobb who attempted to turn a town in North Dakota into a haven for white supremacists, only for his DNA to show that 14% of his genes were in fact from Africa.

So maybe it’s about time we cut out this racism bullsh*t. After all, who knows? We just might be walking into a future where such biracial twins won’t be so uncommon.
