I think that mixed race people are more likely to look "unusual" and so people find mixed race individuals attractive because of that novelty, and the novelty helps win attention. If you have a population of all mixed race people they're not going to be any more or less inherently attractive then any other ethnic population.

Forcing the idea? Who is doing that specifically? A lot of newspapers? Who's branding you a racist for saying that you don't find interracial people more attractive than anyone else. So its opinion, some people like vanilla, some like chocolate, some may prefer mixed flavors, its preference. What's the big deal. I could care less what the media or celebrities say about anything. I'm surprised so many people follow every bowl movement celebrities tweet.

My ex wife was from Africa, she was beautiful, certainly adding a bit more cream wouldn't have made her more attractive to me. I do think mixed race babies, black and white are very cute. Its just personal opinion if you would find that baby cuter than a blonde blue eyed child.

What if the blond, blue-eyed child is black?

Wait, I have an idea! Why don't you just quote the post in which he states that they are "ugly". Easy peasy. Problem solved.

I've got degrees from three universities that prove I do know how to read and write.

I don't agree with that at all. Look at birds, how corvids and parrots are so smart. In the cat world Siamese types tend to be the Einsteins. I've had some pretty stupid mixed breed dogs and cats.

I would like to get away from 'racism' and move to the idea that we all have genes that are brilliant and beautiful and genes that are the opposite. When we mate, with anyone irrespective of race, we are playing genetic roulette. We could each get offspring who are ugly, sickly, and stupid. You know the saying 'There, but for the grace of God, go I'. It's true.

I would like to see a day in which we are offered a sample of our genes and our mate's genes and select the best combos out of the lot. It would be our kid, but the best (according to us) kid that our genes would produce.

There was a special on tv that addressed beauty. The ideal of beauty, no matter what culture or race the person was from, was the face that was an amalgamation of all races, all peoples. Well, considering that we all had a common ancestor, that makes sense, doesn't it?

Nope, I don't see anything more attractive about a mixed race person.

What IS as 'pure breed white' anyway?
Are not we all mixtures of migrating tribes and whichever native populations that we wandered into?

I don't know, which is why I said "what you would consider."

That's been my contention all along; it is those who are not progressive who continue to float the never-legitimate concept of "racial purity."
