Twins Born Showing Different ‘Racial Identities’
I’ve been reading a lot of posts and stories about twins born showing different skin tones. It shows us how fluid and subjective these racial categories are that we are so accustomed to. Many claim the different sets of twins to be ‘biracial’ and ‘rare’. In fact it is very similar to twins born with different eye colours but we don’t automatically stuff them into categories that suit us, do we? How many twins do you see that are the same skin tone but have very different features? Is that made a big deal out of? No. Of course to the media and the majority, this is novel. Two children born to the same parents as twins, that look different… Umm?
