lolwut?

Not true at all. Eye color is polygenic, so it's not all that uncommon. I don't think the inheritance pattern follows a simple Mendelian pattern, but it cannot be likened to two white people having a black child. Sorry man, but this is intro genetics stuff.

EDIT: It is not Mendelian. 15 genes have been implicated in the inheritance of eye color.
