Will me having vitiligo effect my children’s skin colour?

So I am a black male with vitiligo, might sound a silly question but when I have children will my children be black too or will it affect their skin tone? Or will it not make a difference? Thanks.

    Vitiligo ` is a condition in which a loss of melanocytes, results in smooth, whitish patches of the skin.....

    This can occur after unusual  physical trauma, especially head injuries, and tends to occur  with certain other diseases, including Addison's disease, diabetes, pernicious anemia, and thyroid disease.

    Most likely the off spring (your babies ) wont have this condition!!
