inbreeding whites?
Opposite? So lynch a white women for looking at a black man?

Aboriginal-asians probably have an exotic look about them.
A lot of interesting looking people live in Hawaii from various cultural mixes.

I meant white men and black women, often the result of rape/taking advantage of.

I noticed that Australians are extremely attractive people and I don't feel that way about the english, I don't think they look alike at all, I think the Australians have much softer lines about their features and the spirit is rugged unlike the poised English...so I'd say yes, they are as native to their land as we are to ours.
You do know that Oz was a british colony and has a significant 'English' population? Why would moving them to a warmer climate change their genetic physical appearance (aside from a tan). A friend calls Aussies: "brits with a tan" or "brits with better teeth"

Sorry next.. for a little humour.. "attractive" Aussies:
(I miss the Aussie version, the US attempt was horrible)
damn I'm forgetting the name of her neighbor/friend (who found a "husband" online)

Im not sure, but my best friend is an Australian Aborigine and she only looks about 1/4 Aboriginal, so I would say that any Aussie with any significant amount of Aboriginal blood tends to identify as one.

I had a friend in High School who claimed to have Aboriginal blood but that's because he actually was half Aboriginal, I don't know why anyone would lie about a thing like that.

I would not have an idea how many people claim native american heritage. However if someone claims here to be Aboriginial its no big deal.

An white person claiming to be Aboriginal here is not commom, however they are more likely to claim their Aboriginality if they have had aboriginal ansestors than if an white south african who has native African ansestors to claim they have African ansestors.

I have never met a White Australian who claims to have some distant Aboriginal ancestor in their family tree.
