Black and white twins – one in a million

Qossay Takroori 2008/07/20

Parents in Germany are welcoming a very rare set of twins, the first baby was born is called Ryan, and he has light skin and blue eyes like his father. His brother, Leo, has dark skin with brown eyes like his mother.

“None of us could believe it,” the maternity ward’s head doctor, Birgit Weber, told one news source. “Both kids have definitely the same father.”

Black and white twins   one in a million

Ryan, has light skin and blue eyes. His brother, Leo, is dark-skinned with brown eyes.

Stephan Gerth is German and white. His wife, Florence Addo-Gerth, is from Ghana and has dark skin.
It was “a real surprise,” Gerth told the German newspaper Die Welt, adding that the most important thing to him isn’t color, but that everyone is healthy.

Doctors say that the odds are one in a million to get twins with different skin color, but they have  also said it can happen due to genetic soup in our backgrounds.

The twins are in a good health condition and live in Berlin, Germany.

    Congratulation.
    Beautiful babies. The black baby opens his eyes so wide like he listening to Mom and Dad is so cute, and the white baby is sleeping like he does not care who’s talking, just wants to nap.
    So and so cute babies. Love them all.

    • Caitlin

      I'd just like to say that people (a man named Adolf Hitler, from Austria) with the thoughts of yours started WWII, and back then you would have been one of the first to be put in a concentration camp and god willing would have made it out.

      People with the idea that all men are created equal are what got us out of that war so that your parents could be together had have your dumb ass…. such a shame. Grow up and may you one day need the help of one of those "things" that you speak of so that they can run away saying you give them the creeps and and should find another japanese-swedish person to turn to.

    • Caitlin

      And BTW I'm white… not that it matters, but I am born of a race that through history has mistreated, misunderstood, and enslaved people for years and still think you have a lot to learn in life!

    • Toni

      crazy bitch needs to learn, that all races are equal. Kotomi go die. And yeah, would you like it if i said i hate half-swedish half-japanese people? Dumb ass bitch i feel sorry for you, now go along and get raped, stupid bastard. There are no place for retards like you on this earth, dickhead. Oh yeah i hope Hitler comes back to life and sends you to an extermination camp, much love waste of sperm, wannabe white girl.

    • SopiaLovesAll

      I bet your just hating because you are a very very ugly mixed race. Don't be jealous because these babies are more beautiful than what you'll ever be, ugly prat. Get plastic surgery so you can have more self esteem, and so you can stop putting beautiful people down. K bye.

    • usaeventyr2011

      For your sake, I really hope this is some kind of sick joke.Racism is disgusting!

    • sid

    • asf

      ur a ugly little japanese swedish girl ignorance is ugly just know that

    • Meryn

      I am the same age as you, 13 and 3 months. and personally I find people like you terrible, you must learn to accept and adapt to people as they will do to you, If you respect them, they shall respect you. Simple as that. It’s a shame you can’t see the absolute beauty in people. It’s because of people like you that discriminate that many people kill themselves each year, You must learn to switch you’re mind around, have a bit of empathy. It’s people like you who are destroying our generation. I would have thought you would have known that by now. Over and out. – Meryn Knight.

    • Bonitachika385

      What a racist bitch .funny how u talk shit about an innocent baby that can’t defend itself but you’re dumbass would never say shit to a black person in real life cuz u know you’d get your’e ass beat . U wouldn’t like it if someone called u a flat assed no eyelid stringy hair flat chested defective white mutation . You’re probly ugly as hell just like your racist attitude so u feel the need to compliment ur self and talk shit about a baby. that’s sad dumb bitch.

    • Loremise101

      you are so mean, and what a weired combination you are. I would not see that combination as creating nothing cute, Asian and European. I just don’t see you as being that great looking, sorry!, I think everyone is beautiful, but in your case, you are ugly as dirt!.

  • Wali7

    You are very ignorant Kotomi, to put down another race is horrible. I am also half asian but it does not mean that other people are lower than me. You are 13 and need to go educate yourself. And just because you are mixed does not mean you are “cute” it could actually mean you are hideous. ;) have a great day

    • katie

      2 wali7 u are so right

  • Lisa McMarin

    I could not agree more that your ignorance is unfortunate. It is young people such as yourself that insult all of mankind. Both of these babies are beautiful and their parents should be proud that they have two sons to parents and help grow. Kotomi, I will pray that you broaden your horizons and knowledge.

  • John Percival

    I don't think that ignorance is the proper term, how is she uninformed? Because she dosent accept what everyone is forced to believe? I'm rather sure to force an opinion upon someone is along the lines of facism.

    I personally am against racial mixing, I think it is wrong. Hybrid children just shouldent be. We should strive to protect our race and heritage to make sure that our kind will be preserved througout the future in the honor of our forebears, becuse once a white and black mix the outcome will be a black.

    It has been proven that if we keep mixing the White European will be thing of the past, and thats a day that I am glad that I will never see but in the back of my mind I know that if we don't change the path we are on now that it someday will be a reality.

    Im sure that tons of people will disagree with me, and proubably leave tons of hate replys, exspecialy all of you liberal hippies out there, but was it not Voltair who once said " Although I do not agree with what you say I'll defend to the death your right to say it."?

    And rember that it was ideas like his that lead to he foundtion of the American concept of freedom. Jefferson and Franklin were very accustom to the French Court and the major philosophical figures of that era "the enlightment thinkers" and that is what influinced the vast majority of eairly concepts of "old" America.

    • Engreyhen

      you do know that having heterogeneous genes (which would probably be most high in fruency in mixed heritage indivuals) you increase your chance of being adapted to different enviroments/diseases?

      What does "pure" even mean?

      Does that mean you think inbreeding is right?

      Believe it or not but variation is good.

      Were it is dark there will be light skinned people.

      Were it is sunny there will be dark skinned people.

      So long as there are dark cold places white people will exist.

      So long as there are warm sunny places black people will exist.

      Unless the world explodes/implodes.

      p.s take some biology lessons: educate yourself.

      • jonah

        now that is a smart reply engreyhen should look beyond his nose and think centuries not his grand father.

    • supongoque

      well for your information it is the white european race that started the "hybrid children" as you call it..Sneaking of to sleep with the beautiful black women that the called there "slaves"

    • Robert

      John Percival,

      You share the views of Hitler. Just saying.

    • ur a racist a***

      u and komoti(wat da fu** ever) caan go f***in kill urselves wit all this nonsense bout (i'm asian swedish b***h who hates all black pppl) b***th please u think just cuz ur "mixed" means any sh** it dont honey u could be ugly probably r. and u too john u can go fu** urself wit your nonsense racial mixture crap i dont knoe wat the hell is wrong wit ppl these days. but its ppl lik yall two who God does not even love i will pray fo u but i dont think dat will do much.hope u burn in hell!!

    • TSW

      Yes, people will disagree with your view because it is ignorant, stupid and will ultimately send you to hell unless you change your hateful ways.

    • Amy

      wow your so stupid, go join the KKK or something. to be honest nobody gives a shit over your opinion. Now bigot go write a book on 'how to be a racist'…..your a waste of sperm.

    • Jamie

      John Percival…where the fuck did you get that information from? One real prove is shown above! How can you say that when white and black are mixed they are black when one of the cute babies is white?? Why do some black babies have blue eyes? why do some mixed raced children look white? my mom comes from Africa and my dad is german. I have natural red hair.
      What im saying is that you are wrong to think like that. Not all white are attracted to blacks and not all blacks are attracted to white. As long as black people are on the planet they are also going to be white people, even if the great grandmother had a different skin color.

  • Lisa Norlan

    I don't know who you are but for you to say something racist like that..you need your butt wooped for that..ppl might don't like you and probably think that you ugly..

  • h.e.c

    my best friend is biracial and her mother is from belgium and father black and from the states. i love her to death and no matter what color she may be..pink yellow green black brown or purple…she and every mixed race out there are worthy of anything a white or caucasian person could be worthy of. Infact, she is pregnant and the father is white. so does that make him a disgusting person for liking a biracial woman? i sure as hell dont think so! Anyone who thinks they are better than the next person has another thing coming to them.

  • Blondie

    Congrats. What gorgeous eyes both parents have, but the mom also has a pretty face and smile; the babies are sure to grow up handsome men. :)

  • Ashley

    I am a 13 year old black girl and I can write a bad comment to the Kotomi girl saying something about how she is ignorant or that she is ugly, but i choose not to because fire and fire will just make a bigger fire, and my negative comments won't change her opinion on black people. But what I can do is pray for her, and I can pray that she will change her terrible thoughts on black people because it is so sad that she will go through life saying that black people give her the creeps and that there are "things" because we should love everyone no matter what race they are or how they look like. Dont judge a book by its cover but for whats inside, because they could be very amazing people once you get to know them, and I also think it's very very very unsmart to jugde people based on a color!!! But anyway I pray that you will look back at what you said and wish you could change it. I hope you will become a very dedicated christian and love Jesus Christ and everyone of any race and be able to speak to people in a kind manner even if they said something very very mean to you or said something very negative about your race. Anyway God bless your heart and to anybody who is struggling with anything PLEASE WATCH SID ROTH ITS SUPERNATRUAL, because it helped me in very rough times in my life. If anyone watches it please write what it has done for you in your life. God bless you. Bye.

    • cutie

      you are so right hone:)

  • Name

    In all probability Kotomi is neither who she says she is and also is baiting us.

  • shaun

    Kotomi or watever your name is, never talk bad about people. This world is changing if you dont know, you never know maybe when you grow up looking for a job, it probably be a black MAN/WOMAN will get you that job or maybe not, because of you bad mouth and all i can say to you is change. If you have this hatred in your heart, believe me no one will show you love. Read the bible 1 corithians chapter 1 to 13 that will teach you so much about LOVE LOVE LOVE OK? I PRAY YOU CHANGE BEFORE ITS TOO LATE REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU AND I, PEACE.

  • tonton

    ahhh! so cute! my wife is 5months pregnant with a baby girl. I’m Japanese and my wife is Swedish. I hope she won’t be a waste like “Kotomi”… If she’s who she says, how can she be so illiberal, and ignorant? Parents to blame?? just makes me feel sick to know there’s people like her in the world.

  • kIMBERLY

    I am Indian(from India) and I love black people and all other ethnicities… except for racists like you…

    You are a Hitler in a female form!!!

  • Mandla Vilakazi

    I'm a very black man and i used to be extremely racist. so much hate, anger and fear. God's helped me, though, and now i am filled with understanding and acceptance. i understand that Americans call nice people that want to do good things "hippies"… where i come from, they are called rare. i like this Kotomi, i doubt that she is a she or even that she's of mixed races; i think it's someone having fun with us.

    John Percival has a couple of points; we really do not want the Caucasian people to disappear, so maybe there should be some racial separation, like the Apartheid that we hadhave here in South Africa. Just playing; all in all, he sounds like a good white man. Love is key, man, love… Beautiful baby; you decide which one I'm referring to:)

  • Donnica

    the ignorance and stupidity of people still continue to appall me. How can a person in this day and age refer to another humna being as ”things”??? i think that the twins are absolutely beautiful! God is showing us a sign that no matter what colour you are, we’re all related and are all one!
