My girlfriend and I have been discussing having a child recently and I wanted to know, if we go through with this, what is the possibility that our child will be light skinned.
Im black, but have native American blood from my dad side (Chariki) and my mothers side (Chalktah). My dad has dark skin as a dominate trait and my mom has light skin as a dominate trait. Both my grandma are dark skinned like me, but my great grandma on my moms side is 50-100% native American (Dont really remember) and my dads brother is light skinned like my mom.
My girlfriend is French-Canadian/Persian. What is the likely hood our child will be light skinned? Just to note how dark im actually am, im more of a milk-chocolate color.

The formula is generally this:
Take your skin tone and determine how far away from the average for your population you are. For instance if your population is dark chocolate, and you're milk chocolate, let's say you're 25% lighter than your population. Do the same for your wife and her population. Add the percentages up and divide by two. This is percentage A
Now figure out the average shade of each of your populations and get the average shade. This is average B.
Now take shade average B, Lets say cafe con leche, and increase or decrease it by percentage A.
That's the most likely color.0
