Amazing Twin Sisters Turn Seven; One is Black and One is White

By  |  302 Comments

By Barry Burch Jr.

Twins are a rarity as is, whether they be identical or fraternal, but when one is black with brown eyes, and the other blue-eyed, blonde and pale-skinned, many of us cant help but ask ourselves: “Is that possible?”

The answer: Yes. Kian and Remee were born one minute apart, seven years ago, and outside of the twins’ smiles, the two girls couldn’t look any more different. The sisters’ appearance comes from a one in a million combination of their mother and father’s genes, who both have white mothers and black fathers.

The two first gained international attention at less than a year old. And now, as they approach seven, neither has yet to ask about why they are different colors and neither have experienced any forms of racial prejudice.

They are such a perfect example of how it should be,” said their mother in an interview with Mail Online. “They are not bothered about their skin color. It’s not the big issue everyone else seems to see it as. It isn’t important to them at all – it’s about what they’re like underneath.”

The mother, Kylee Hodgson, 25, said she first thought the girls would begin to look more alike as time progressed, but the opposite actually happened; resulting in storm of arguably embarrassing questions like, “who really fathered the girls,” and “who is the fair-headed girl?”

“People would ask me why I dressed the children the same,” Kylee said. “I’d just say: ‘because they’re twins,’and leave people to work it out. It kind of irritated me at first, but everyone in my area got to know they were twins and accepted it. It was only strangers or outsiders who didn’t know.”

Although the girls share a deep connection, they are already going about living life in their own ways. Both have their own sets of friends. Kian loves animals and her sister enjoys cooking. But the girls remain best-friends and don’t let differences get in their way, according to Kylee.

“And they don’t notice the color thing, not at all. They’ve grown up with light-skinned people around them, and they’ve grown up with black people. But they’re just themselves. They don’t see what everyone else sees,” said Kylee.

      This is not a marvel, one kid inherited the genes that lacks melanin and the other receives the genes that has more melanin. All these genes already existed in their parents. If the parent are African Americans the most likey carry theses genes cos the Massa put them genes there, or it a recent gene.

        This is very ignorant. First off the parents are both mixed. Secondly we are aware of recessive genes. If you read this is a 1 in a million chance. Take your slave mentality comments else where.

        Its not really that rare, I am a white female and my twin is a black male, my dads black my moms white and all grandparents but one are white, i am blonde and blue eyed my bro is black and brown eyed, its not special weird rare strange or particularly confusing, it is simply the colour of our skin, I’m 13 and even i know that when it comes down to things no one should care about colour because quite frankly its a colour, its not our personality or soul, because our true colours don’t show on our skin but deep inside. prejudice id irrational and based on a fear of being belittled because someone thinks their skin colour is superior or a fear of being put down because your the “wrong colour”, you can walk into a nursery of 4-5 year olds and you’ll see that all them children play together, they don’t label each other as different.

      I agree with this part…. We just have to heed his message,and drop all the racism.we are all Gods CHILDREN.

      don’t agree with this part…
      we are all Gods CHILDREN.

      we were until sin came in. we are all God CREATION. no longer do all human creation have the ways of God or the mind of Christ.

      John 8:40-45

      if we are ALL god children then their is no need of being upset about racism, just embrace what ALL GOD CHILDREN have to say… im just saying

    Listen to Earth wind And Fire’ “That’s The Way Of the World” Children are born with a heart of gold, & the world makes it stone cold.

      Amazing Grace: Well said. But the people in the world makes it stone cold. The world is a beautiful place in which we have been given. Children live what they learn. Prejudice is learned behavior.

      There is only one race. And that is the “human race” of which I feel all of us belong as long as we are human beings.

      Learn not to hate but appreciate the differences. We are the world. As Michael Jackson so graciously said it: Heal The World. Instead it should read Heal The People of the world. The world is a beautiful place in which we were given everything.

      Human beings destroyed and tarnished all the goodness of this beautiful world.

      Thank you all for listening.

    either we have some very color blind people or highly uneducated. As a #Caribbean person, I have seen family genes with red curly hair, to those with hazel green eyes born of black parents/or some combination thereof. The intrigue with these twins is demeaning to the parents and to the sisters. One is not white and the other black. They are very individual and distinct in their identities, particularly because they are fraternal twins. Again, they are being made to isolate which one is more black vs more white. For what reason!!! I hope just like most of the families I have grown up with, including my own, the best quality they both will have for the rest of their lives is not their color, but the beauty of love…

    I think these girls are beautiful I have a daughter who’s father is black and I am white and she is my same complexion. The color really does not matter, it is very possible for a black couple to end up with a pale skinned blonde hair blue eyed baby. Genes can skip. These two girls are absolutely model material. I think both of them are gorgeous.

    This is the second time in the past month I have read of such an event. The other event was a baby born white and blond to an african couple, both darked skinned and have other children, of dark skin tone. Years ago I rememer there was a white woman in England who gave birth to one black twin boy and one white twin boy.

    I agree, God Is Trying To Tell Us Something!

    White people please look and see, but don’t kill. They are not yours to try fit into any category that suits your closed-killer-minds. Just fall on your knees and ask God for understanding, you may learn something! Life did start in Africa and spread out from there. People are human being no matter what the color of their skin is and these births are a perfect example of that.

    very beautiful children!!!! everyone needs to sit back and think, no one asked to be the color that they are. we didn’t get the pic what color we turned out to be we are the color God want us to be! to all the racist people, what if you were a different race???? think about that! second of all how do you think that different race came about????? Adam and Eve of springs had a dark skin baby!!!!!!!!!! and find their offspring had different culture babies like Mexican Guatemalan Irish German African and so on and so forth. racism should have never been an issue!!!!!!!! God doesn’t like people that Judge! only god can judge us!!!!!!!!!
