The media uses "bi-racial" actors and models because it easier and cheaper to have one person who multiple races can identify with or accept.

because maybe he only has a black and white TV, and people of colour are therefore 'redundant'. Go easy on the man...
Do you need help? Are you having anger management issues? I simply asked a question. If you read my question and interpreted my tone as yelling then you have issues.

in genetic science, a hybrid usually inherits to best traits of both parental units.

but this could apply to best characteristics other than appearance. like intelligence, strength, health, athletic ability

it just really depends upon the dna max the offspring gets.

I think some of its referred to 'Hybrid Vigor'--getting the best genes from both contributors. Altho I do think some of this is up in the air seeing as how the child may or may not get those ideal genes. Remember seeing that movie GATACA. That pretty much is how some people would like to engineer their kids--with only the best they can offer. In many ways it is a social joke with 'I want a butt like that, lips like this, hair like that'. Sure SOME mixed breed people attractive--in fact you can take your best looking 'pure' breed against your best looking mixed breed and I am willing to bet I PERSONALLY would favor the mixed breed.

"Race" does not exist.

There is no such thing as being "mixed race" because that would imply that different "races" are genetically differentiated enough to create someone who would qualify as "mixed" (combination of genes from 2 or more foreign populations) in the first place.

This thread is racist.

Did someone hit the wrong link before posting? This is a Fashion and Beauty topic not Genealogy. I believe there's already a duplicate post on that forum. Perhaps the mods can move it where it needs to go?

No, they are less attractive than full-blooded white people to me, a full-blooded white person.

black people find black people more attractive
asian " " " asian " " "
india " " " india " " "
mixed " " " mixed " " "
etc.

there are of course exceptions to this general rule and it is in no way comprehensive or absolute.

This is NOT a genealogy question. Genealogy is the study of families and lineages. Not the study of how to judge people by skin color, facial features, etc.

Please people, take this tripe elsewhere.
