Couple Gives Birth to ‘Miracle’ Black and White Twins, Again

The Sun: Black and white twins Hayleigh and Lauren Durrant proudly hold their new sisters Leah and Miya – who incredibly are also twins with different colored skin.

Their mixed-race parents Dean Durrant and Alison Spooner repeated the miracle after a seven-year gap.

When the first set of twins arrived in 2001, the couple was astonished to see that Lauren took after her white mom, with blue eyes and red hair, while Hayleigh had black skin and hair like dad Dean.

Then this year Alison, 27, found she was expecting again – and lightning struck twice.

She had twin girls again. And little Miya was born with dark skin like her dad and Leah is white like former recruitment consultant Alison.

“The girls just love Miya and Leah to bits. We didn't think it was even possible when we had Lauren and Hayleigh – and it didn't cross our minds that it could happen again. But we are just delighted that it has,” Dean, 33, of Fleet, Hants, said.

Wow.

That's gonna be hell when they have to pick which ethnicity they are when applying for college :/ .
God needed the Devil, the Beatles needed the Rolling Stones, Hakoshen needs me.
I'm the enemy he requires to define him.
Soon or later, he'll bring me back to life again for another epic encounter of shouting about power levels and grimacing.

More likely it'll be hell when they have to explain the ethnicity they put down. Just try explaining that you're black with red hair and blue eyes.

Just change their last name to Rodriguez and no matter where they're from they're “Hispanic” and a minority.

Ever read the stories about the Spanish people who are pegged as “Hispanic” even though they insist they're European?

And what does a Real African put down when it says “African-American”? ;)

Maybe they should follow the old Southern Misengenation laws where any black ancestors going back three or even six generations and you're black. :(

While something like this is possible, albeit extremely rare, if the original source is The Sun (as in the tabloid) I'd have a hard time believing it.
That's “Dr. BlkKnight” to all of you.

SPOT ON Bravo, Pot on!

The whole idea is amazingly racialist it's disgusting.

Having to “pick” an ethnicity… wow, what a piece of obsolete cultural baggage. Even called the kids “mixed race”. In reality, there is no race… but everyone has a mixed cultural and genetic heritage.

–The Sun is just the sort of racist rubbish that'd make a big deal out of this sort of thing.

Wait, the Sun published this? Any other time I might find this completely discredited, if not for so much corroborating evidence. And apologies on my part if I offended anyone, but sadly ethnicity plays a role in the lives for anyone considered to be “ethnic.” Hopefully however, by the time they get to college that part of the entrance paperwork will be no more.

If having a tick box for ethnicity means there can be language programs optimised for a person, or it means extra help for them if they come from a low income background etc, I'd agree with that.

I just don't like the idea that it might be involved in some sort of subtle segregation.

No it won't. There is such as thing as Mixed-Race. I see it all the time on college forms. And if it isn't there, they can just tick “other”. Hell on British forms they even separate all the different sub-groups of different ethnic origins. Even more so in Scotland than England. Because Scottish forms have British ethnic origins too. Like White Scottish, White English, etc. Some English Collages probably do, too. But it's more prevalent in Scotland.

I guess it's understandable. There's a massive cultural gap. And a lot of hardcore Scottish nationalists would get pissed off if it wasn't that way.


Regarding the twins:

It's not that unusual, really. There mixed race babies born all the time and there's bound to be one baby that picks up more of one physical trait from one parent than the other. It sure as hell happens with babies born of parents with the same racial background. Some people say I look like my parents, but when you really look at us in photos and videos, I don't. My sister has more of a likeness than I do. Which makes some people not realise we're even related or see the miniscule similarities until they know about it beforehand.

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!
