I'm sorry to confuse matters, but this isn't entirely true. It's perfectly
possible for two white sheep to give birth to a black sheep. I've got
haircolour that hasn't been seen in my family for at least 4 generations
(no comments about the milkman, please - it's been done to death already).
It's all to do with dominant genes and recessive genes, and all that stuff
which I don't really understand, 'cos I slept through biology (well, I
had a Bio teacher who made sex education boring!)

They wouldn't if they were taken from their parents at birth, and
raised by parents with a different accent.#
