Why even post the damn story if undeniable DNA test results haven’t been confirmed?

First of all, the wife certainly has some explaining to do: she must not be that dumb to think that people aren’t gonna ask questions.

Second of all, what kind dumb of nurse would make such a blatant mistake and give such a white baby to such “black” parents if a baby swap mistake occurred?

Third of all, all you twits reacting like wild beasts to this story : What do you know what genetics can really do? Did you assist life on earth for millions of years? Or even better, did youcreatelife on earth? Showing a few picures of unattractive albinos isn’t proofs that albinism isn’t part of genetic mutation anyway. There are black people with narrow noses and thin lips as well.

That's my point. All people come from Africa at some point. Therefore the gene mutations that can occur to create caucasoid skin must be found in Africans.


Yes. It must have. I am still not sure how that relates to anything I was saying, but I agree.

Not really "The same," but there are links to be certain. I think that really depends on what you mean by "same population." There are distinct groups within Europe as well.

www.sciencedaily.com...


The detailed comparison revealed that genetic similarities between Indians and Europeans tend to increase with caste rank.

Intriguingly, the scientists found different trends when comparing maternally inherited (mitochondrial) variations and paternally inherited (Y chromosome) variations. Maternally inherited DNA in Indian populations was overall more similar to Asians than to Europeans, though similarity to Europeans increased with rank. Paternally inherited DNA, on the other hand, was overall more similar to Europeans than to Asians. These results support the notion that the West Eurasian immigrants mixing with native populations were mostly male, and that they tended to insert themselves into high ranking positions in the developing Hindu Indian caste system.

When they become albino, they look European. Mainly, they look like Norse descendents.


Some of them do indeed look similar to Norse people.

Not sure what you mean here. It is correct that all people labeled "albino" do not have red or pink eyes. I have met albinos with blue eyes. Not to mention that there are abundant photos of them on the internet, so, I do not know what you mean by the "red eye thing."

then again if a CAUCASIAN presented with all the same features and did not have the red eyes or the eye anomolies associated with Albanism......would anyone look at them twice as an Albino?


Yes. There are Caucasian albinos with blue eyes. And yes, people do notice them as albinos. Most "white" people are not really "white." I have seen data however, that all people with blue eyes can trace their ancestry back to one male.

scienceblog.com...


New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today. “Originally, we all had brown eyes.”New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor.

So it does make you wonder how the whole albino thing works, if the genes for hair eye and skin color necessarily HAVE to be linked up so tightly that they all show up together.

The "eye" anomolies the family is talking about may not be the red eyes. It may be the eye problems albinos often have from birth. If the child is missing these, the medical people may not have identified the child as Albino for cultural reasons.


True, it may be because the doctors did not note the eye problems often associated with albinism. But her family specifically mentioned that her eyes are blue and not pink, (in the video) and they were using that to bolster their opinion that she was not an albino. They also mentioned she did not look like some Ethiopian Albinos they had seen.

Whats your explanation for the different races? If you are a Creationist, God created two people, and you are in the same quandary science is in explaining how we all ended up so different. Or is there a secret portion of Genesis I dont know about, but you do?

Why all the aggression and refusal to give the benefit of a doubt that the doctors that say this child isn't an albino may have known what they were talking about?


Im not agressive about it. I acknowledge that the doctors may be right.

I have just seem quite a few, and know that they vary in pigment levels, and from what the article says and the parents say in the video, the door is still open in my mind that the child may be.

I had my appendix removed for nothing. (And thats just the most extreme example in my own life, I can think of many other times when they were wrong, both in my own life and in the lives of friends) Doctors dont get everything right.

It's pretty rare, but you do realize some nurses are not that bright? I read a story years ago in which a white couple was said to have given birth to a black baby. Turned out 6 months later there had been a baby switch. This does happen on occasion because some nurseries are busy. If your baby is born with melcoium (essentially poo) in his/her lungs then the nurses won't even let you hold the kid. They just whisk them off to get it suctioned out. Then you also have tired people, stupid people, inattentive people.

I'm not saying that's what happened. Just saying it's a possibility.

would be really interesting to hear if that baby is really related to the father i mean we all would like to see some DNA results

Interesting. I'm White and my first Wife was Black. Our daughter was light skinned but visibly Black.

My Wife's Uncle had pure blue eyes and very dark skin. All of his 10 children (he was a Pastor of a Church with too much time on his hands) had either blue eyes or a mixture of a blue with brown. Not only were their eyes blue, they were that striking very light blue.

I guess anything is possible.

Since I'm blue eyed and we all have one common ancestor, did I marry into my own family?

Guys if your married to a blue eyed woman and you have blue eyes, knock it off, you having incest


I've only heard the argument that Blacks were different "inside" one other time in my life, it came from the KKK. They think Blacks are different Species. Literacy is everything in this modern world. Easier to hate someone if you think they are not the same Species I suppose?

My best friends kinda like this, both of her parents are from costa rica, they both have tan skin and black hair, her brother and 2 sisters have tan skin and black hair but she has blond hair and is very white but she looks like the rest of her family...just a white version of them, this happens sometimes I guess.

Given enough time without interaction, the groups of sapiens could have speiciated.

However, they didn't. Even the ones that appear to have little to no interaction for more than 60,000 years and had Cro-Magnoid traits were still not speiciated.

And while the multiple origins theory people may not have things right - the fact is that they do have something right. Even groups that were not interacting have been evolving in the same manner. People in Peru went from early Homo Sapiens to modern in the same way that people in Africa as people in Asia. The native in the Andes and the Adaman Islanders both evolved into modern humans without any influx from one "new" source.

Groups that did not have interaction changed the same way on an essential level.

Not one group of us has in any way changed in any fashion that would be enough to even give the minor-est fertility issue in interbreeding.

It is all stupid memes. The real differences between us aren't in our skin cells, or how your jaw does or doesn't protrude. Its in your HEAD.

I think you are ok, its a very distant common ancestor. If you go back far enough, we are all related no matter how you slice it. Creationist or not.

And that is interesting about your wifes relative.

I googled around and found this if you are interested.

Haha, ya, I agree. Must've been a crazy white man in the woodpile. Or the hospital gave them the wrong baby.

Anything is possible! Back in the mid-1990s', a co-worker gave birth to a baby boy with red hair! She was very dark skinned and everyone wondered where the boy might have gotten his looks. They think it was a white grand-daddy. Once again, race is all about HUMANS and not about color. But the dad sure looked doubtful!

Men in black! Hehehe!

Too bad love doesn't solve all the problems in the world. If it did we'd all be be hanging by threads and and hovering over ourselves.

Very interesting story. I personally believe it is a set-up, but that's only intuition talking. Seriously, what are the odds the baby could come out white with curly blonde hair when you take into account the features of the parents as well as them stating there is no family history of these features?

Just goes to show even more how racism is the epitome of ignorance



Isnt it racist to think a baby should look like its parents?
What should matter is that it has Eugenic Genes.

Was that the fertility mixup story?www.parentdish.com... e-dominican-couple-sue-fertility-clinic-over-black-baby/
If that is, yes if there is gene manipulation involved, there’s good probability that mistakes can be made.
In this case, I’m hoping they were not paid to pull this con story on us. How disgusting that would be!!

I admit, that is quite hallucinating, but I’d rather be fascinated with the mysterious ways of nature.
People get too caught up with racial traits and identity. We don’t know the realm of what nature can do so we have to remain opened to surprising probabilities.

Look at this cutie here.


Does she have the thinnest nose and lips in the world?

And what about those blue eyed black people?

I know the explanation is recesive genes but still.

^ it's fairly common actually. i have family members (i'm "black" "african ameri-whatever") and I've got aunts and uncles with blue eyes (my dads brothers/sisters), though very dark skinned. I've also, one cousin(on my moms side) in particular, that minus knowing her my whole life, one would assume first, that she's white, but her parents are just like this couple.
my family covers the spectrum in regards to color, and no, fidelity doesnt play a factor. just the roll of the genetic dice.

i was watching a documentary(the name escapes me) on i believe history channel years ago, where it was said "the species with the most variation, tends to the the oldest" and mentioned variations amongst peoples and other creatures.

we are a species are subject to genetics, just as we are to our environments...so it's go figure.
