Biracial twins, one black, one white, won't let race define them

Marcia and Millie Biggs, 11, are biracial fraternal twin sisters from Birmingham, England — although strangers often mistake them for best friends because of their different skin colours.

Millie is tall, has beautiful dark skin, brown eyes and jet black locks, while Marcia is slightly shorter with blue eyes and blonde hair. Millie takes after her Jamaican father, while Marcia takes after her mother — at least when it comes to looks.

“Marcia is a bit of a tomboy. She loves her gymnastics} and prefers the colour blue,” mom Amanda Biggs told Good Morning America. “But Millie is the princess  – she loves pink and all things
bling. She’s a bit like her mother in that way.”

Look out for the twins in the April issue of National Geographic magazine, an issue dedicated to race, and watch the video above and let us know what you think!
