    Interesting. I've seen half Somalis that look fully white, very impressive that some features survived down to a quarter with you.

    Either way, welcome.

    Well most quarter people do... I went to school with a couple of quarter Jamaicans and they looked pretty much white... One had red hair and freckles... But they still had that 'spice' I guess

    I feel like black features are generally more persistent than Somali ones. That's why half Somali-half west African kids, for example, look mostly west African.

    These actresses are both a quarter black... I guess I disagree with this idea that Somalis don't have strong features

    The black portion would be African American, who themselves are somewhat mixed. Find me a quarter Nigerian that looks like that. ;)

    Somali features are definitely weak, i've witnessed it many times. Nothing wrong with it of course, just the way it is.

    I guess it all depends on the lineage... My grandfather was a dark complexioned Somali with a fro! He had the typical phenotype though.

    Not 100% sure. But i can't think of many reasons as to why an old Somali man would hold two white kids like that, unless he had some kind of relation to them.
