I think Genealogy is in dire need of moderation.

Try taming that monster.

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. All the women I have dated and considered beautiful WERE beautiful 24/7.

Even when they were sweaty, stinky, tired and angry. Shrug...

Of course, that's subjective...
Well, you have a point - but I was speaking objectively - not with a big ol' wad of amorous feeling thrown into the mix!

People are always attracted to what is different. The old mixing of the genes axiom.

Your President Barak Obama is mixed race but he's ugly.
Looks are always a matter of preference, and yes, there are many women who think Obama is attractive, and really doesn't always appear bi-racial. The OP question at hand gets a bit provocative though, the suggestion is, does "white blood" make people of African decent look more attractive? Does a darker skin person having facial features that are, in general more Caucasian, improve looks? The people listed above, are celebrities, in very good shape. Vanessa Williams without make-up is nothing special, the same with Rashida Jones, who appears to have very little stereotypical negro features in spite of being bi-racial also needs make-up. Jessica Ennis, also is nothing special. Derek Jeter is hot, but there are plenty of white baseball players that are hotter. It's all a matter of preference. I think Sean Lowe from last seasons The Bachelor, now on Dancing With the Stars is extremely hot, but there are those that would think blue-eyed blondes of this variety are too pale and washed out looking. To each his own.

Default Isn't the human race mixed?

I remember a Black friend of mines asking "so let me get this straight, you are telling me a mixed race guy is more attractive than me because he has White in him while I am not good looking because I don't have any White in me?". It was against this college girl who said that and the girl didn't respond.

What are your thoughts on the whole mixed race people are more attractive belief?

I think the human race is already mixed. Anyway, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It would be convenient to be able to generalize, but foolish. Every person has different tastes. If you are asking whether lighter black featured people are better looking than darker... Well, I have been seeing many women with a preference for the darkest man they can find. I see these really pale pale white ladies with dark dark black men. They seem to like it...but you know some would never consider it. People are all different.

Option 4 on the poll:

It depends on the mix.

Sometimes mixed-race people are more attractive, and sometimes "pure"-race people are.

It depends on the person. Race makes no difference to me.

I have been to places where there has been a huge amount of inbreeding within a small area and the people were not good looking, in fact I remarked to someone on how homely the people were. Other than that, I don't see any difference between staying within your own race or not. I had a few aunts who were very beautiful and the family is English>English>English>English all the way. There are lots of different looks just within what we consider English--the really beautiful one, known for her looks, had ivory skin, green eyes and red hair.

But I have seen mixes of different races who are beautiful too. There are Asian women who are drop dead gorgeous, black women who are gorgeous. There are Asians who marry blacks or whites -- there are millions of combinations and it just depends. Depends on how the combination turns out--can look good, can look bad. You can have kids from the same parents and one will look great, the other one not so much. Who knows?

that depends on the races that are being mixed. Black White mixes usually turn out ugly most of the time.
