What an incredibly beautiful family.

Still...I didn't like the article. Calling one the "white" baby and one the "black" baby....looking white doesn't make you white, looking black doesn't make you black. And the "black" baby doesn't look and "blacker" than her mixed-race parents, so why isn't she called the "mixed" baby? Funny how her parents both have dark hair and dark eyes, but get called mixed because they don't have a pale twin to compare to. And what if the "white" baby's hair turns dark when she grows up? Does that make her less white, is that the "black" showing through?

This all bugs me. Ethnicity is not based on what fucking skin color you are. Danielle is paler than me, but that doesn't mean I'm more black than she is, jesus.

Yeah, the article seemed rather poorly-written to me too. I think if they had substituted 'pale-skinned' for 'white' and 'dark-skinned' for 'black', it would have made a lot more sense. Because they still do have very similar genetic material, so they obviously can't be of different races. ('race' is a ridiculous concept, anyway, biologically speaking -- it's culture, not blood, that makes a race)

I think they were going for the shock factor, as all media does, and thus using the more emotionally-charged words. 'Forget the facts, it's the IMPACT that sells!'

Yeah, they are little darlings. I'd love to see their DNA chart though. I don't know how to interpret them very well anymore (not that I really ever could) but it'd be cool.
belenen ══╣analytical╠══
I bet it would. I loved biology... except for the dead animals part.

belenen ══╣curious╠══
oh cool! I can't wait to see 'em!
tremontidood ══╣╠══
This is a truly beautiful sight. And those babies are gorgeous. This for some reason gives me a euphoric feeling, and i dont know why. Possibly because I'm biracial as well lol. I dunno why
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
oh that's awesome. ;-)
aslan_fan ══╣╠══

belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I know!
paravati ══╣╠══
I've noticed it too and it pisses me off as well. :)
belenen ══╣confused╠══
the comments thing? I think I have it fixed -- can you tell me if it is still a problem for you?

I saw them on Good Morning America the other day. They're absolutely PRECIOUS. They said the odds of this happening were one in a million.
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
awww. God is pretty awesome.
boobiequeen ══╣╠══
I missed this until just this morning when I was looking back on my friends page.

It makes me giddy.
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
I know, I just love it!
baka_shampoo ══╣╠══

how absurd but amazing.
*_* what a great family of diversity too!

You know, out of ALL of this what I find the most interesting is the name chosen for one girl being "Kian" ... Kian is an ethnically Iranian name that comes from "Kayan" and is rooted in an old Persian Kingdom.. it means "king" if I remember correctly. I don't know, perhaps with a different pronunciation it is a name from another language.. anyway.. I'm glad I guess that stuff like this is seen as good? Then again, it makes me happy to have been raised in a Baha'i community where stuff like this is pretty normal.
belenen ══╣confused╠══
*confused look* What exactly is considered normal? 'cause twins looking that different is like a 1 in a million chance.

Que lindo...!!!How cute...!

Who are they???

Nice photo!!
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I don't know, I just saw the news article!
darkpool ══╣╠══
Awwww, they are too cute. Just wait till they get to school and people are like " you're not really sisterts!' And they say " Actually, we're twins!"

This has happened at least once before, I saw an article about it happening once in Englands in I guess the forties or something. In that case the mother was white and the dad black.
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
So awesome. They'll confuse people and maybe crack some mindsets. ;-)
paravati ══╣╠══
It's still a problem for me. Your comment stops at the "y" in "Can you tell me if it's still a problem for y"

Heh.
