Not really. This sentence only applies to White people. The African population on Earth is exploding every decade. Asians of all their various complexions aren't going anywhere because they do not allow immigration into their countries.

There's some truth to it. From my experience, mixed-race people do tend to be very attractive for the most part; I know many couples who are Asian and white, and man, their kids are gooorgeous! I have yet to see a mixed Asian-white child who wasn't beautiful. I think it's the unusual combination of features, it adds that exotic, striking contrast factor - even in caucasians, it's always considered beautiful to have contrasting features like dark hair and light eyes, or the opposite. Mixed people tend to have that, or just that slight slant of the eyes, or full lips that lend that contrast; they also tend to have gorgeous skin, an unusual caramel color. I knew a very attractive couple where the guy was Asian and the wife was a blue-eyed blonde, and their son had light olive skin, dirty blond hair, and slightly slanted brown eyes, such an unusual combination, he was beautiful.

Yes.


Black and white twins born for the second time in the same family! - YouTube

...and for privacy reasons I won't post pictures of some of my relatives, beautiful people of mixed African-American heritage.

I just learned today that mixed race and biracial(as well as tri-racial) aren't the same thing.

I think the op meant biracial?
Mexicans are mixed;
Barack Obama is biracial.
The term is misleading,everyone IS mixed.

Besides,define race?
A mixed Italian-Irish person is mixed,right?

If you're applying the "one drop rule" - like this grandchild of mine?

See above child. She is 1/4 African American and 3/4 "white" (actually a mixture of European, American Indian and Jewish). Blonde hair, blue eyes - but being a "quadroon" would be considered "black" by many people.

My son is of a similar appearance. His hair is the same color but more nappy, his eyes are the same color, and his skin is lighter. He is black because that's what his parents and grandparents are.

I don't know what you're saying about a one-drop rule, and I certainly don't know why you would be rolling your eyes.

She is an adorable little girl.

And you are right. If it wasn't for her eyes, then I would probably just think she was African American.
