Why are their no piebald people?

If a mixed race child’s skin colour is a mixture of their parents’, why are their no piebald people?

  1. Actually there are piebald people but it is quite rare. The Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons in London has an exhibition ‘A Visible Difference: Skin, Race and Identity’. Their webpage shows examples of piebald people:

  2. My 2 sons are piebald, it runs through their dads side of the family

  3. Actually, there are. Its pretty rare though. Like Tanya, it runs in my family as well.
    Its usually on our hair/foreheads or knees.

    (trust me, the white hair looks badass. :D)
