    Why does Halsey look white when her father is black, making her half black... Genetics is a crap shoot and you never quite know what'll get passed on and what won't. This is why race theory is generally so stupid and we should all just get over it. Our gripes about "race" are largely socioeconomic more than having anything to do with our genetics.

    Because they ARE white. Passing on genetics is a lottery, not a mixing of paint. The one-drop rule is wrong.  You have 23 chromosomes from your father and 23 from your mother, making 23 pairs. When you make a baby, baby randomly gets one chromosome out of every pair of yours.

    So when you are a "halfbreed", you either pass on the chromosome with the recipe for "black" or the one with the recipe for "white"

    DNA.  My very white looking brother (blond, blue eyed) married a 1/2 native woman, but, their 4 kids look at least 90% native, and some look completely native, despite being 3/4 white.  That is just the way it goes.  Some black/white couples have had twins, with one of each, although both were half, and half.

    They are 1/4 black at the most, assuming that their black grandfather is 100% black.  I would think that being 3/4 white, that they would be more apt to look white.
