How are y'all getting all of this out of what he said? Talk about putting words in people's mouths. I would be annoyed too if my partner took 4 hours to get ready and stressed over everything he ate. There is a difference between wanting to be healthy and being unhealthily obsessed with your looks. Mental health is just as important as physical health. She should be happy that's she's healthier instead of stressed. From his words that were posted, he seems to be more concerned about her emotional well being than her weight loss. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

The girls are obviously biracial. Has the security guard never seen biracial children before?

@Aabaakawad @Tammy_Ghalden @Statuesque Most skin color genes don't work that way (dominant/recessive). If they did work that way, the African genes would almost certainly overtake the Caucasian genes just going by other typical European traits that are recessive (light hair, light eyes, etc.).

You're misunderstanding the calculations. 50% of the child's skin color genes will come from you. When your skin color genes are 80/20, there is a limitation to how many fair-skinned color genes you can donate to your child. If 100 genes make up skin color, you can only donate 20 fair-skinned genes at the most. That means the 30 other genes you will give to your child will be for dark skin. However, the chances of you donating all 20 of the fair-skinned genes are not high.
I said nothing about black genes being dominant. This whole time I have been talking about a mixture of genes. I don't even see where you would get that I think dark-skinned genes are dominant. If they were dominant, then I wouldn't even think that the children had much of a chance to come out halfway between the parents.
@Suburban Soulgirl @Tammy_Ghalden You're on here like everyone else making multiple posts. It seems as if you're the hostile one. My post was not directed at you; it was directed at people in general. It is a common, false rumor that Mariah Carey and Wentworth Miller are half black.
@inori @KingsDaughter @Statuesque By the way, albinism is recessive. You either have it or you don't. When it's paired with a dominant gene, it has no effect on the person's phenotype. And a person can be 100% African and not be 100% sub-Saharan African (black). There are native Caucasians in North Africa.
@Statuesque If the person is mostly carrying genes that are responsible for dark skin, then that person's contribution to his or her child has a higher chance of mostly containing genes for dark skin. If 80% of your cards are the same, what do you think the outcomes will be when you shuffle them up and split them in half repeatedly?
@inori @KingsDaughter @Statuesque The lightest tribe I know of in that region is the Igbo tribe and they are caramel-colored, not fair-skinned.
@KingsDaughter @Statuesque I probably should have used "skeptical" instead of "suspicious." I had a brain fart, but it doesn't change the meaning much.
@KingsDaughter @Statuesque That's fine. However, I know there are wide variations in admixture among various tribes in East Africa. I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say you are 100% black. I know there are certain ethnic groups in Africa that have relatively light skin tones, but I'm always suspicious of those who say they are 100% black. People say that all the time in the U.S. and rarely are they really 100% black.
@TexasGurl How old is your daughter? I was born with light skin and loosely-curled, sandy-colored hair. My hair is now off black, kinky, and my skin is dark.
@KingsDaughter @Statuesque What tribes do your mother and father belong to? Which countries are they from?
@Statuesque The intermediate range wouldn't be too wide if skin tone followed the bell curve. That means that intermediate skin tones that are near halfway between the parents' skin tones would be much more likely than intermediate skin tones close to one of the parents.
Something came to mind when I was thinking about the correlation of skin tone and admixture in African Americans vs. Caribbeans. I wonder if they controlled for sun exposure. As we know, African Americans live in a wide variety of climates. Caribbeans in either the West Indies or the UK do not.
@Statuesque @Tammy_Ghalden Michael Jackson was African American.
@Statuesque There will always be outliers, but most people who are roughly half white/half black will fall into a range when it comes to skin color. Skin color is not like other genes in that there are dominant and recessive traits. Skin color is made up of a mixture of genes, so most people will fall halfway between the skin color of their parents.
Two of the graphs in your article show a strong correlation between African ancestry and melanin index. The only one that doesn't show a strong correlation is the one focused on European heritage. It makes me wonder what their sample size was for white Americans who have African admixture since the article admits that the admixture is very low on average.
@nikkikeith7 Most of your children look like they are mixed with black and white.
I believe Stacey Dash is half Mexican. Her daughter is not half black.
@kaylenematthews Minnie Ripperton is lighter than most of the Jacksons and her daughter, Maya Rudolph, still looks blacker than all of Michael Jackson's kids. I could tell Maya Rudolph was not all white before I even knew who her mother was.
@Good @MamieMooney Thank you! People stay making up stuff talking about Mariah Carey and Wentworth Miller being half black. smh
