The baby's skin could turn out like either parent, or somewhere in between. There is no set rule for what the baby's skin tone will be. I've seen couples have children with varying skin tones, some resembling the mother, some the father, and some resembling neither.

Since NO person is 100% anything anyway, and majority of blacks usually have European and/or native american roots, Caucasians have native american sometimes, or/and African american roots, and Hispanics are usually a mixture of European, Spanish and African american. It all depends on the persons ancestral background, some people actually don't know what their past ancestors ethnic background consisted of completely, so It's hard to tell. Say if you both have brown eyes, if the baby came out with blue, or green eyes, it's probably because they got it from a past ancestor. Some genes are stronger than others. If both of you have dark skin tones, the baby could come out as really pale, or if both of you have pale skin tones, the baby could come out as darker than you both. It all depends on genes, some stronger and more noticeable than others. If the baby doesn't resemble neither of you, it's possible the baby inherited their traits from an ancestor in either or both of your blood lines.
If you could see the families of a woman and man, that could give you some idea of the dominance. My niece is by-racial, het mother is white and father black. She took after the father. My nephew is by-racial, same thing, yet he's light skinned and has very few black features.
