Marcia and Millie Biggs resembled each other at birth. Most individuals are surprised to hear that they are twins.
Amanda and Michael Biggs welcomed their twin daughters into the world in July 2006. They were happy and pledged to adore them for the rest of their lives.
Amanda and Michael, like most twin parents, quickly discovered that their children had quite distinct personalities. But as the months passed, they began to observe something odd. The skin of one of the twins was changing dramatically.
Millie’s fingers and ears began to darken at first. This skin tone then extended throughout her body.
Marcia’s parents expected her skin to darken as well. Rather, it began to brighten.
Of course, Amanda and Michael’s skin tone would never be a problem. They were, after all, an interracial couple. However, they were concerned about how others would regard them.
Birmingham, UK, has a long history of racial conflicts. The parents eventually discovered how unusual the twins’ skin shifting phenomena was. Atavism is a condition that happens in one out of every million twins.
It was caused by the parents’ different genetic make-up. Most significantly, Amanda and Michael discovered that the condition would have no detrimental health consequences.
When Marcia and Millie’s skin tones shifted, they caused quite a stir. For example, Amanda has noted that while she was pushing them about in a stroller, individuals would wonder how they could be twins given their various races.
Fortunately, Amanda and Michael have discovered that the majority of individuals have not been antagonistic. Instead, they have shown understandable interest, followed by tolerance.
When the twins went to school, the other kids asked them similar questions because of their differing skin tones. Many other students assumed the two were simply close friends at first. When the youngsters discovered that Marcia and Millie were twins, they were both perplexed and welcoming.
The sisters are still close friends. They assert that they do practically everything together.
They like both singing and dancing. They do, however, have varied dress preferences and personal styles. Millie’s preferences are more feminine. Marcia is somewhat of a tomboy who enjoys gymnastics.
The twins claim that they have never encountered prejudice. Their dad, on the other hand, claims that he has. Seeing his twin girls flourish has taught him how far the world has progressed.
When the twins were 11 years old, they resolved to exploit their distinct DNA to combat prejudice on a global scale. They were featured in a commercial that demonstrated that race is a societal construct.
The twins are now in their twenties. They are still classmates at the same school. They will, however, attend college/university in the coming years. They will most likely relocate to different cities, if not separate countries.
Whatever occurs in the future, the two girls are certain to be close friends for life.
Both Marcia and Millie, hopefully, will enjoy happy and prosperous lives. They have already demonstrated that race does not affect an individual.
