      Why do when two people, a black person and a white person mixed and make a baby, why does the baby come out to be brown. Shouldn’t it be either black or white? And why is it rarely that the baby inherit the white person’s genes like the blonde hair, blue eyes, and white skin?

      Things like skin color are polygenic traits; controlled by many genes with an additive effect.
      Your question is quite broad and I think you should study some basic genetics to get an idea of how it works.

      blonde, white, and other white traits are recessive. At the same time, it’s codominance thats taking place.
