Prince Jackson and Paris Jackson, son and daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe:
Blanket Jackson, son of Michael Jackson and an (unknown) surrogate:
When Michael Jackson (a black man) had children with his wife Debbie Rowe (a white woman), people were quick to make claims that Michael couldn’t be the biological father of his children simply based on the way they looked. It is not uncommon for a black individual to parent a child that has predominantly ”white features” when the other parent is white. Take into consideration the fact that Michael Jackson also carried Cherokee and European genes, and it’s really not so hard to believe.

As the children get older, the similarities of their features to the Jackson family’s features cannot be denied.
When Prince was born, Jackson himself said,“He came out with this really big head, that when I saw his head, I thought of my grandfather and my brother Randy, ‘cause his head was shaped just like theirs.”
Paris looks more and more like Michael’s sister La Toya, every day:
And Blanket is the spitting image of his father:
Let us not forget the fact that Prince is showing signs of having Vitiligo, a skin disease that Michael Jackson is proven to have had and is known to be hereditary (some of Jackson’s relatives on his father’s side had it as well).
There is often an argument about “Paris’ shocking blue/green eyes!” and how having such bright eyes is somehow proof that Michael isn’t her father (as he had dark brown eyes and it’s rare for black people to have blue/green eyes). While Paris does favor her mother, her eyes could just as easily have come from her grandfather, Joseph:

Other Biracial celebrities with predominantly “white” features:
Rashida Jones: daughter of Quincy Jones (a black man) and Peggy Lipton (a white woman).
“I get: ‘But you look so white! You’re NOT black!’ I want to say: ‘Do you know how hurtful that is to somebody who identifies so strongly with half of who she is?”
Jennifer Beals: daughter of Alfred Beals (a black man) and Jeanne Anderson Beals (a white woman).
“Because I’m biracial, I’ve always lived sort of on the outside. The idea of being ‘the other’ in society is not foreign to me.”
Wentworth Miller: son of Wentworth Earl Miller II (a black man) and Joy Marie Miller (a white woman).
“My father is black and my mother is white. Therefore, I could answer to either, which kind of makes me a racial Lone Ranger, caught between two communities.”

Here’s a breakdown of how biracial children can have many varying skin tones depending on their parents heritage (remember, Michael has White ancestry):

Two weeks ago a man in France was arrested for raping his daughter. She’d gone to her school counselor and then the police, but they needed “hard evidence.” So, she videotaped her next assault. Her father was eventually arrested. His attorney explained, “There was a period when he was unemployed and in the middle of a divorce. He insists that these acts did not stretch back further than three or four months. His daughter says longer. But everyone should be very careful in what they say.” Because, really, even despite her seeking help, her testimony, her bravery in setting up a webcam to film her father raping her, you really can’t believe what the girl says, can you?
Everyone “knows” this. Even children.
Three years ago, in fly-on-the-wall fashion of parent drivers everywhere, I listened while a 14-year-old girl in the back seat of my car described how angry she was that her parents had stopped allowing her to walk home alone just because a girl in her neighborhood “claimed she was raped.” When I asked her if there was any reason to think the girl’s story was not true, she said, “Girls lie about rape all the time.” She didn’t know the person, she just assumed she was lying…
No one says, “You can’t trust women,” but distrust them we do. College students surveyed revealed that they think up to 50% of their female peers lie when they accuse someone of rape, despite wide-scale evidence and multi-country studies that show the incident of false rape reports to be in the 2%-8% range, pretty much the same as false claims for other crimes. As late as 2003, people jokingly (wink, wink) referred to Philadelphia’s sex crimes unit as “the lying bitch unit.” If an 11-year-old girl told an adult that her father took out a Craigslist ad to find someone to beat and rape her while he watched, as recently actually occurred, what do you think the response would be? Would she need to provide a videotape after the fact?
It goes way beyond sexual assault as well. That’s just the most likely and obvious demonstration of “women are born to lie” myths. Women’s credibility is questioned in the workplace, in courts, by law enforcement, in doctors’ offices, and in our political system. People don’t trust women to be bosses, or pilots, or employees. Pakistan’s controversial Hudood Ordinance still requires a female rape victim to procure four male witnesses to her rape or risk prosecution for adultery. In August, a survey of managers in the United States revealed that they overwhelmingly distrust women who request flextime. It’s notable, of course, that women are trusted to be mothers—the largest pool of undervalued, unpaid, economically crucial labor."
One manager at the apartment complex where I worked while in college told me, repeatedly, that she knew I was “Okay” because my little Nissan was clean. That I had worn a Jones of New York suit to the interview really sealed the deal. She could call the suit by name because she asked me about the label in the interview. Another hiring manager at my first professional job looked me up and down in the waiting room, cataloging my outfit, and later told me that she had decided I was too classy to be on the call center floor. I was hired as a trainer instead. The difference meant no shift work, greater prestige, better pay and a baseline salary for all my future employment.
I have about a half dozen other stories like this. What is remarkable is not that this happened. There is empirical evidence that women and people of color are judged by appearances differently and more harshly than are white men. What is remarkable is that these gatekeepers told me the story. They wanted me to know how I had properly signaled that I was not a typical black or a typical woman, two identities that in combination are almost always conflated with being poor."
