Nutters who keep themselves awake at night worrying about the destructive effect of "race mixing" on the world's future supply of blondes can take solace from this story.
When Kylie Hodgson gave birth to twin daughters by caesarean section, she was just relieved that they had arrived safely.
It was only when the midwife handed them over for her to hold that she noticed the difference between them.
Remee, who weighed 5lb 15oz, was blonde and fair skinned. Her sister Kian, born a minute later weighing 6lb, was black.
Both Kylie and her partner Remi Horder, 17, are of mixed race. Their mothers are both white and their fathers are black.
Contrary to what the story claims, families in which mixed race parents bear children who look entirely like one "race" or another aren't at all rare - indeed, I lived close by one such family as a child, with two blonde-haired, blue-eyed, Scandinavian-looking children being raised by their two half-black, half-white biological parents. The idea that "miscegenation" will lead everyone to look like Ronaldo and Halle Berry is so stupid that only those who have not even a rudimentary understanding of genetics could subscribe to it.[Via Occidentalism.]
