If Michael Jackson was intially black why wouldn't his children look half black?

Recommended Posts

Does his skin condition affect that too. I was just wondering and wanted a scientific perspective.

Are they his biological children? My favorite MJ song says the kid is not his son. I'm not otherwise well-versed in Jacksonalia.

I've heard this as well, that they don't look black at all. Here's a photo you often see floating around the 'net. The smaller girl up front is the one he dangled over the balcony.

They look pretty white there alright, but then you see pictures like this of the older pair and have to wonder a bit more:

Not only do they look more black there but they also look more like Jackson. (shrug) Dunno.

 

I don't think it's a matter for science, though -- if you want to explore that you'll have to set Jackson aside and look at it more hypothetically. Even the paparazzi probably don't know enough to answer this one.

Assuming it's vitiligo, the age of onset is commonly young adulthood, skin pigment being mostly unaffected until then. As to whether Michael Jackson currently has any biological children is debatable.

It's definitely not vitiligo. It might not be all that noticeable in some white people, but you can definitely tell in black people. It's not even like Michael's skin and it turns it pink instead of white. Michael is a big fat liar.

There are 2 possibilities:

- They inherited his skin-pigment disease.

- Ther are not his children.

They certainly aren't his biological children. For one, Michael Jackson was still Black. He surgically altered his physical appearance but that was just...his SURGICAL alteration. He didn't alter his genes or innate phenotype, which is impossible to do. If you look at pictures of Michael junior, he had full lips, dark skin, a broad nose and African textured hair. Meanwhile, Debbie Rowe carries the full recessive traits of a Caucasion. :confused:. I know it isn't always the case where an interracial couple produce a black-looking child, but the offspring usually displays SOME visible trace of the father, whether it be in the nose, eyes or elsewhere. Prince and Paris look a long off from Black - they resemble Debbie IMO. And their skin color might very well be a tan.

The children of blacks and whites can have a wide range of skin pigmentation and appearance. Thus, the phenomenon of "passing" for white. In the Jackson case, it is possible that the children naturally have the complexions pictured. It is also possible that, having a white mother and a father attempting to be white, they or their parents opted to have their complexions "adjusted" as well.
