This is really amazing! And it's really true.
Twin girls with their parents.
To parents, both of mixed race, worked together to have some fraternal twins. One baby is white, the other is black. This is a genetic rarity, but it does occasionally happen.

" worked together" interesting way of phrasing that.

Hm... maybe they are genetics experts, but they aren't math maticians.
"The odds of such a birth are about a million to one, experts said."
That would make all 999,999 sets of twins different races and one set the same.

That should be "two" not "to."
