I think it's BS to say that biracial people look better or are the most attractive, because not all biracial people look like the ones you just named; the people you named are all celebrities, and for the most part, they look for attractive people to put in the media and make celebrities. Look at Lolo Jones; she did all those photo shoots, all that modeling, TV commercials, interviews, etc. and didn't win one medal. Speaking of which, I think Allyson Felix---a fully Black track and field star---is MUCH more attractive than Lolo Jones. Plus she actually wins medals and competitions and is not just a pretty face and a nice body.

Moreover, for every attractive biracial person they put on TV and make a star, there are just as many ugly to average looking biracial people walking around in real life who don't get any attention. Trust me, I see plenty every day!

They are all celebrities who happen to be attractive. There are lots of allegedly "unmixed" people who are just as attractive, and lots of "mixed" people who are ugly as sin. Most are not celebrities.

I think its ridiculous to say that any race (or mix of races) is more attractive than other races because people all look different. Take a look at any Miss Universe Pageant and you'l see beautiful women of all races, colors, countries, etc. Its just that some people may have their own specific PREFERENCES, but this doesnt mean that what they like is more attractive than others.
This makes sense. There is no correlation between race and attractiveness.

Having responded to all of this, I have to say - this topic doesn't even belong on the Genealogy forum.

How do you define mixed? How do you define "mono-race?"

Which is EXACTLY the point I wanted to make. ANYONE can be considered attractive no matter what their background is.

They all look passably attractive, but not especially so. White people range from hideously ugly to jaw droppingly beautiful.
Mixed race people all look not quite 'the same' but kind of more or less equal in terms of attractiveness. Rarely 'wow theyre ugly' but generally not strikingly attractive either.

Just my opinion.

I read some articles on the Guardian (and mainly British newspapers) saying how Mixed race people are more intelligent and more attractive as well. Seems like the whole country of England is stuck on this idea.

Naw, they're upper class foreigners who are much better than the locals.

I'm mixed and lived in "mixed" 3rd world countries as a concert/event photographer; the upper class looks better and is typically more mixed. They'd be better looking than most even without the mixed blood.


As for mixed people look better; it's REALLY hit or miss. Some folks dig mixed folks and will hunt then down. We're not common so the ones who like us REALLY, REALLY like us.

As a mixed person I wonder who the hell keeps writing stuff like this. Either way us mixed people appreciate it very much.
