A UK black couple gave birth to a white baby and they are calling it a miracle!
HERE'S WHAT: It may be a genuine miracle or it may be that the wife miraculously convinced the husband that it's a genuine miracle, but either way, it's a miracle.
Really...of ALL stories to comment amount you pick this one...I'm a little offended given that no one is just one true race...I mean I really do enjoy Bravo because of the diversity on the shows but now I see that they are just like everyone else, full of trash tv and it's a shame because the housewife series started off great but now it SUCKS, it's ALL ABOUT THE DRAMA...which sells, I get it but I thought that you guys were above such things….but you aren’t and putting up a link to this ignorant story is just the icing on the cake…great job Andy, you’re making your home town of St. Louis proud!
Come on dude!! A baby is a baby, I am sure that both of your parents are light skin and look at you, dark skinned from head to toe!!
Really...black couple...white baby miracle???? Same thing happened to my girl friend...the baby got darker as he got older. DUH!!!!
What a beautiful baby....she makes me smile just looking at the picture...so what's the problem again??? :)
Hey Andy, even Bethenney's baby is adorable. Jason's family is not exactly genetically blessed. The Frankle genes must have come through. I look forward to the day when we no longer refer to anyone as black or white. How about that we are Americans? Andy...are you smoking crack or something? If you need better dish...just ask the fans for ideas. Having Shawn and Danny on you show would be better than this story. Give us something to talk about. Pair up the odd people and go for it.
Andy, I think you and Danielle should have a baby. You both would look so great together on the cover of the the tabloids. You both are genetically blessed and have great white large teeth. I am so jealous. I do think you need to show some more skin Andy.
The baby will more than likely turn darker as she ages. I know this because, a best friend of mine growing. She was a few weeks old when she was adopted. she had blonde hair, blue eyes, and White was on her Birth certif. Her parents "white/ with a little indian" adopted her thinking she was white. well she was about 2 yrs old, when her hair just fell out. It scared the parents, the doctors didnt know what it was, a few weeks later her hair was growning back in. SUPER curly and it was black hair, as she grew up her skin got somewhat darker not much though because I was always darker than her, and i only have 1/16 of indian in me. But she was indeed african american Of course her parents loved her no matter what color her skin was. Her mom went and learned all she could about how to do that type of hair, and how to style it. They did everything in there power to make sure that little girl was loved and knew she was loved. and now she is 25 yrs old. and she will tell u this story all day long if u let her. and all the stories about how her white parents did all they could to make sure she knew about black history.
(ATTENTION anyone reading this! That pic is just a stock photo. It is not of the actual child)
Anyways, my son was that color when he was born, and I am Nigerian and my husband is African-American. My son is now a brown color. But it took almost two years before his skin became darker. I've also seen other black (and white) children start off with lighter hair and eyes and it becomes darker as they grow up....not that weird.
Nice choice Seriously!:o) Now, being that this subject had absolutely nothing to do with Americans or African-Americans,yet both were brought up in posts prior to mine...it quickly entered my own wandering mind (as it has before) in terms of being "P.C."in reference to a person of color in places outside of Africa and America, such as the U.K...I'm very curious how other countries around the world choose to coin their term or phrase? or is it only America who dubs all of these sub-categories of their own people & why??? I mean really, I'm just say'n...B/C I've never personally heard anyone say African-British, African-Canadian,etc...you know??? Am I mistaken??? If not, then why the heck must we???
my mom is a dark skinned mexican, my sperm donor(my father) was also mexcian, and I look white, I asked my mother, what she thought when a little white baby came out, she just laughed. Most of my family memebers are dark skinned and HATED being called the little white girl.
Both my husband and I are half Asian. We both have very dark hair and eyes. Our son and daughter have very blonde hair and greenish eyes.
I like that "we're all mutts". I have traced my family to Alfred the Great and beyond - if you want to trust the records. Even found I share a gr-gr-gr-gr grand parent with Booker T Washington. All families came here before Ellis Island. Anyway we are just mutts.
So what? As many said, the baby will probably get darker as it gets older.. and, so what? The only thing that gets me is when biracial couples "claim' as race, as Obama and Halle Berry did. Both have white mothers and black fathers that weren't even around nor supported them to fame,, yet, used their black identity when they became famous. We rarely hear about the white mothers who fed, raised, and educated them. The race card is now used to get fame and they use it to act like they had to overcome obstacles when they had silver spoons from their white mothers fed to them and they give their fathers the credit?
Don't be so stupid and racist. Both Halle and the President have thanked their Mothers for helping them get to where they are today and speak of , just how much they love their Mothers. I do not think that there were any silver spoons while they were growing up, they were from single parent families. I have never heard any kind of great admiration and love for their Fathers. They are both obviously black looking and not white, and they are embracing their heritage. No one has said that they don't also feel white and embrace that. There is no way a racist like yourself would ever look at either of them and consider them white!
I think the individuals you cited (Obama, Berry) describe themselves as African-American or Black primarily due to the fact that visibly, both individuals are dark-skinned. If anyone unfamiliar with either person were asked to describe each, invariably they would indicate African-American as far as the ethnicity. Like it or not, one's physical appearance is usually what we first notice unless suffering from a sight issue.
Personally, I find the entire coinage of African-American, Asian-American, etc. totally asinine. If you are born in America, then you are American, plain and simple or, at least you would think it should be. I believe this double nationality stems from the fact that Black Americans really have very little if any understanding of what nation culturally their ancestors hailed from and Africa, the continent, was the closest identifier. Most of this took place during the 1960's Black Power/Panther movement. Unfortunately, since science does indicate that all civilization began on Africa, I'm guessing that all people can claim themselves to be African-American in the United States. Let's not forget the millions of White individuals inhabiting Africa; what should they call themselves if African is not acceptable? Aside from the craziness of the 1960's, I don't believe there was any question as to whether or not Blacks were American, at least not since the beginning of the 20th century. It appears to be just another way for people to isolate themselves from a larger grouping which of course is not good.
First of all I think you have some valid points, but most people judge by the appearance. Halle Berry and President Obama both look like African Americans, and the world probably views them as that. I can remember reading an article about Halle Berry stating her own white mother told her that the world will view you as an African American, so she decided it was best to declare herself as that. Being bi-racial is very complicated and must people view black and white bi-racial kids as black especially when they have black features and skin tones. I don't think they are giving the parent who you claim abandoned them all the credit, they are just stating the obivious. Halle and President Obama give props to the parent who raised them all the time. If President Obama said he was white would you believe him?
LMAO...I think you're "here's what" was wasted on a lot of people, hopefully the woman's husband being one of them. lol
Wow, really, you think they look "African American", because I have a good friend, who is ACTUALLY African American and she is white, blonde, blue eyed. When I say African American, she was born in Africa to white African parents, then got her citizenship here in the US, making her ACTUALLY African American.
Jason's family is not genetically blessed? Does that mean you don't consider Jason genetically blessed? I must be watching a different show! ;-)
In response to "So What?"... read all of Obama's books and you will see that is not the case. Also, try looking at Halle Barry and Obama one of these days next to their white mothers. Do they look white to you? They too had to face many obstacles. They are seen to the outside world as "black" not white. If you saw them on the street would you really say "white?" Doubt it. If you read Obama's bio's you will see he credits his grandmother and mother quite often as well as bringing in his roots from his father's side. He does not dis credit them at all. He just shows both sides. Both sets of family which made him . As for Halle do you think she walked down the street before she was famous and was seen as white? She too had to struggle with racial prejudices. I wouldn't doubt it for a minute.
I think that the concept of the baby being a MIRACLE because it looks white is absurd. Hopefully, they have the common sense to teach the child to be proud and love itself no matter what it ends up looking like. Every baby is a miracle...maybe the baby will get darker (that is generally the case)..or maybe the mailman's white. Who knows or even cares.
Well really,the sub categories do help identify and paint a more vivid picture when describing our friends and acquaintances. Im 39, and have always been conscious of political correctness and not sterio typing. In doing so, i've been offensive many times unknowingly. Being a white mother of a super cute bi racial 8 yo, I hear her and her friends, of all races describe everyone they talk about, first by race, second by hair style, third by what they wear,and fourth by personality. They all seem very comfortable with profiling, as well as voicing anything that offends them to the group. Its all out in the open, at least in my experiences with 8 yo olds. my point is they categorize too, but they also seem to be working out a lot issues we havent.
This beautiful baby is not white. This handsome child looks bi-racial. This baby momma's got some 'splainin' to do to whomever is considered the black father, unless, of course, there are white genes in the parents' pool, and the child is dominant recessive.
Obama mentions his white mother and grandparents frequently. He hardly "used" his black identity. He was a successful man in his own right, through his efforts and drive, (and the early motivation of his mother), not because he played some race game. He was successful DESPITE the fact that his father was absent. Educate yourself about his upbringing, he didn't have any silver spoon in his mouth as a child! He was elected because he is the All-American Mix, which many in our population relate to. It's the future of this country, WAKE UP.
