Meet The Black And White Twins Everyone Can Tell Apart

Posted in: , ,

Some twins are so identical they are like peas in  a pod, others are fraternal twins who look different but you can tell they're siblings. These twin sisters, Lucy Aylmer with white skin and straight ginger hair, and Maria Aylmer, with her thick curly hair and darker skin, are at the extreme of that. Both born minutes apart in January 1997 by the same mother, the twin sisters 'couldn’t look more different if they tried'.

Thanks to a rare scientific quirk resulting from their mother and father's mixed-race pairing, they were both born with different coloured skin. Their mum Donna is half Jamaican while father Vince is white. But when they heard they were having twins, they could never have guessed that they would produce twins looking so different from each other.

Woman Slammed For Seeking Baby-Daddy Online After One Night Stand Pregnancy

Posted in: , ,

Bianca Fazey from Australia had unprotected sex, during a one-night stand with a man in Perth, on April 23 last year and surprisingly discovered she was pregnant soon after. She had diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in 2011 and had been told that she was unlikely to ever become pregnant easily. This is probably why she chose not to terminate the pregnancy, and she also believes the father has as much right to the child as the mother.

So Bianca has been looking for her one night stand partner since she realized she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she has had no luck, even going as far as posting an ad on Gumtree some months ago, but she is determined to keep searching, especially after her baby almost died at birth.

Kanye West Calls Racism A Silly Concept & Has No Problem With White People Using N-Word

Posted in: , , , ,

Kanye West had a sit down with Clique TV in France during the Paris Fashion Week which he recently attended with wife Kim Kardashian. One of the topics that came up was racism and Kanye gave his own interesting perspective which is that racism is a non-thing and that it's outdated and overtaken by recent happenings. He also has no problem with white people using the N-word at concerts or singing along to rap music.

“It’s true that white people use that word at concerts. It’s like when my words get taken out of context. I can say anything I want on a beat, but when I would say it in an interview, it would be taken out of context, and all, ‘Oh, he’s an ego-maniac.’ But it’s like, ‘Wait a second, this is the way people rap.'”
