Black Twin, White Twin

In 2005, a woman in England gave birth to twins that looked pretty much alike. Over the next year though, one got darker and one got lighter. Now, even though they share the same father and mother, the twin named Kian is black, and the one named Remee is white.

 

This is obviously a rare happenstance, which simply gets determined by which egg gets which of the seven genes that control skin color. In this case, it helped that both of the parents were also the children of interracial couples, so both of their DNA had the capacity to make black or white babies.
