Widely renowned as a leading source of trusted, stringently fact-checked reporting, Bossip.com (B-ossip??), whose tagline is "Henny without any Coke", brings us the game-changing story of a blond, blue-eyed baby born to a British Nigerian couple this past Saturday. This thoroughly researched account of the world's FIRST "white" baby born to "black" parents is pulled directly from another bastion of good journalism, The Sun.
I would have thought anyone sophisticated enough to down "Henny" straight (no mixers?? You CRAzy!) would have a more sophisticated understanding of race, as well, but - judging by this article - it would seem this is not the case. Certainly, dubbing the infant "white" rather than "exhibiting characteristically Scandinavian? Aryan? Caucasian? (not sure which is really most accurate) features" ups the "newsworthy" ante (i.e. - readership?), but surely Bossip's (and the Sun's) readers are aware that external physical characteristics do not necessarily indicate a person's genetic racial makeup.
In the end, with The Sun's lack of any source citation, we'll never know if there's any credence to their claim that a white (read: blond, blue-eyed) baby was born to a black (read: Nigerian) couple (I suspect the baby is actually albino, despite The Sun's rejection of this possibility), but I love the possibilities inherent in the idea this could happen, if only for the mindfuck it'd be for white supremacists!
