Honestly, I'm more pissed about the "good to hear" bit of the topic than anything else.

I don't really care, and if two individuals love each other, awesome. But otherwise it's just as bad to encourage racial mixing as it is to be against it, as both stances focus entirely too much on ethnicity.

I'd be a lot happier to simply read that there are more individuals out there finding love and relationships are overall lasting longer (which I believe I read they are, though don't ask me to google a source), than to care much about whether they are interracial or not.

I thought white trash was inbred isn't that what is always said

oops looks like I offended some poor snowflake


you really think that offends me? I cant deny what is true, at least on my pedophile fathers side

This human genetic diversity / non-diversity thing is a non-topic... Everyone is already mixed.

Even someone who is supposedly "purely" of one race is already genetically diverse. For example, Chinese.

Even Chinese aren't "just Chinese". There are the Northerners and the Southerners, and their looks, customs and foods are different. I'm half Northerner and half Southerner and so is my wife. Even if you're "just a Northerner" or "just a Southerner" things aren't that simple- There have been invasions from north of the Great Wall to start Dynasties such as Jin Dynasty and Qing Dynasty, and there are tribes and nations to the south that aren't of Han Chinese either.

It's going to be similar stories with Koreans and Japanese.


But you can still get more and more mixed. The more mixed the progeny the better they will be. You sound offended by this article. I am mostly Asian, but I have the DNA of all the 5 races on this planet.





"DNA of 5 races" doesn't make sense. Racial classification doesn't denote different genetic makeup.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_(human_categorization)

It is often stated that the fixation index for humans is about 0.15. This translates to an estimated 85% of the variation measured in the overall human population is found within individuals of the same population, and about 15% of the variation occurs between populations. These estimates imply that any two individuals from different populations are almost as likely to be more similar to each other than either is to a member of their own group


See above. "More mixed" doesn't make any sense if you could already be more different than someone of your own "race" than some of another "race".

I didn't bother reading the article. I am responding to the topic only.

I wasn't offended but pointing out misconceptions.

Well if my god dam dad didn't have jungle fever, and infected me with a strain of asian flu, we wouldn't be nearly into this predicament. :P

As it stands, now asian chicks are automaticly hotter then non-asians chicks of the same body type and personality.

(jungle fever=preference for others of different ethnicity other then one's own.) (asian flu=more commonly refered to as yellow fever, it is where one prefers orientals over others)

My first reaction upon seeing this topic was who fucking cares? It's not a big deal, and treating it like it is doesn't help anything.

Edit: On reading a few of the earlier replies, I'm glad I'm not the only with this reaction.

As a further edit let me add that I am also worried about what would happen to the culture, languages, and traditions of my people should we cease to exist genetically. I myself have put a ridiculous amount of effort in helping reconstruct some of these things . Especially in the languages where I have a natural talent in learning and recording them.


You don't need racial purity to decide what language/culture you are. Just because people are mixed do not mean that the culture of the parents can not be with them.

The problem you are describing is cultural assimilation, which does not require one to be racially mixed to happen nor does being mixed mean one must leave the culture they like or feel they adhere to. All in all, racial mixing is a good thing in the long term, both scientifically and socially.

I wonder, though: do you really need to preserve genetic history in order to preserve and honour things like oral and written traditions, visual art, music, poetry, and so forth? I'm not so sure you do.

I'm not Greek, but I know The Iliad and The Odyssey pretty well and recognise them as historically and culturally significant works of great importance. I know enough of ancient Greek history to put them in their proper contexts as epics. To have an idea of what audiences were probably thinking and feeling about what they were hearing as they listened to orators deliver them. Meanwhile, I'm sure there's at least one Greek person out there who couldn't be arsed to read the epics, let alone learn and remember enough about their ancient history to put the works in context.


Like someone brought up, you'll have people like Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Native American because her ancestor shagged one a millennia ago and she has less than half of percent of DNA from that encounter. Seems exploitable. Personally I find it gross if someone who claims to be something they are not for political gain. Definitely don't subscribe to the whole idea of trans-race.

The benefits of outbreeding are negated when their are no different races to mix with. The danger of inbreeding lies in homogeny, which is also the eventual result of all human subtypes merging into one. Thoroughly interbreeding the subtypes only assures short-term advantages. In fact, it arguably allows for an eventual increase in the rate of congenital diseases, due to a higher concentration of genetic markers of the aforesaid diseases. Outbreed all you want, but each and every potential of defect will not simply go away, but will, instead, continue to be passed on and stack with each other. On one hand, inbreeding will produce the results in a more immediate time frame, yet the same conclusion comes about by mixing everyone into a homogenous slushy. Either way, we're screwed. (cue rotten tomatoes)

Well I mean how could it not when so many of us are becoming mixed raced through generations anyway. Heck I have so many nationalities in my family tree I can barely keep track of it

On a more serious note, from a scientific standpoint more marriages with people with other ethnic backgrounds has the added bonus and lessening the number of people born with recessive genetic effects, not to mention a society where different groups of people are less likely to be isolated from one another. I certainly welcome the trend and look forward to the day when people are so intermarried the idea of race is left in the dustbins of history and more people can look at each other based on their individual merits (less racism, bigotry and stereotyping).

I'm down. I rather don't have a problem with cultural diffusion, which is what "appropriation" really comes down to. It's inescapable, just something that naturally happens when people start communicating and exchanging ideas, goods, and services. Humans have taken things from each other and enjoyed, adapted, and used them forever, and though many have tried to stop this from happening no one ever succeeds. Not the noble classes of pre-industrial Europe, not the ultranationalists of industrial Europe, not the SJWs, no one. It can't be done.

So? It's extremely common for people in the United States to identify with ethnic groups they've traced their families back to from several generations. There are whole festivals held in the US dedicated solely to the practice of celebrating these heritages, and frequently by getting sloshed. Hell, people celebrate Cinco de Mayo without having any idea what it's actually supposed to be celebrating; it's just another excuse to get hammered for a lot of people.
