Not sure how often this happens. At my former HS, I saw a mixed girl once. The father was white and mother black.
The girl was still light skinned. She was a whole lot closer to her father's white color. However, she had the hair, eyes, and facial features of a black person.
I always thought the darker skin color would be more dominant.

I think it's technically a genetic mutation because biology taught me that darker skin is a dominate trait and light skin is recessive1

Um, no. Where did you get that idea from? Does it matter? She is a human being like her parents are. I have family who is ethnically mixed and come out however they do, it still doesn't mean we aren't related. I have an aunt who looks like she's Asian, but is my late mother sister and they both have the same parents. Looks can be deceiving. Blue eyes runs in my family and we all have different things. Genes are genes, environment, diet also plays a role in our genetics.1
