The old problem with Mendel

Reading newspapers I got the weirdest problem stuck in my head. Michael Jackson was originally black. He had the condition that turned his skin pale, fine, but he still bears dark skin DNA, doesn’t he? His family is quite dark skinned. He got married – had children with rather light skinned women. Ok. But how come his children are so light skinned? I mean, wouldn’t it be logical that the skin types mixing would still give darker outcome than the children have?

It’s no racial problem, it’s trying to figure out why nature acted the way it did. Interesting, though, isn’t it?
