My mother is scandinavian and my father is a more light skinned african american...my sister and I share the same mother and father.
I came out with medium toned skin, emerald green eyes and darkish brown hair with lightish sort of highlights in the summer. My hair is curly...but very silky and fine like my mothers...it "likes" to be straight...so, it's not coarse at all. I have fine features like my mother and most people think I am mediterranian. Nobody ever guesses black and white mix.
My sister has more african american features than I do...a wide, happy face...fuller mouth and large pretty eyes and a wider nose...she has blonde hair (that is a bit thicker than mine, not as silky), blue blue eyes and lilly LILLY white skin...oh, and super cute little freckles sprinkled across her nose.
No one ever guesses her race/mix either and with us being raised in upper middle class, white areas...well, there was just no one around who really saw a lot of "mixed" people, so no one ever guessed a lot. When we lived in the south people could tell though.
Now I'm all grown up and have my own baby and we were interested to see how she would come out...my skin is much more olive than dark...but we wondered if she would come out a little tan baby (oh, how I had crossed my fingers!
NO DICE! My baby looks like a sack of flour with my DHs face plastered to the front of it! My husband is pretty much straight Irish with a little bit of English in the mix....he has light light skin, but does tan in the summer, dark green/hazel eyes and darkish brown hair that is VERY fine.
DD is EXTREMELY light skinned with very very blue blue eyes..like, DEEP denim blue. She has dirty blonde hair (for the moment, I see it getting darker and think she will end up with lightish brown hair) and it is kind of curly if the air is wicked humid...so.
Every time two races get together to make a baby...it's like a roll of the dice. I think I remember being told that every time an egg and sperm get together, there is something like 64,000,000,000 different possible outcomes when you to into account all of the variations, etc....I don't know if that's completely true or what...but I do know when it comes to black/white mixes, the heritage is so screwy, anything can happen. Lots and lots of black people have caucasian blood in their background and I even have a half sister (two black parents) who married a black man and ended up with a very dark, african american child and a little girl who is white white white. So....really, you never know how that is going to turn out.
Ooooh, this conversation has me really excited thinking about my son, who is due soon....we are wondering what he will look like...maybe this time we will get a little brown baby? A baby who looks even remotely like me!
People think I'm my DDs nanny for goodness sake!
I WOULD say this....based upon what you have said about your childs eye color and IF that color sticks...I would put all my money on african american genes as oppossed to asian. Brown skin tone, lightish hair, light eyes....dead give away (in MY exp) for a white/black mix.
