In my opinion, there is no "odd" mix when it comes to blacks and whites. atleast, not where I'm from. blacks and whites mix with all sorts of ethnicities

An odd mix, to me, would be something like Korean and Portuguese

Actually, a Korean/Portuguese mix wouldn't seem all that odd. Alot of Koreans and Portuguese settled in Hawaii, so some mixing could have happened.

And in Brazil. In fact, I know a couple part-Korean, part-other Brazilian Brazilians.

I also know that the former Police Chief of Honolulu, Chief Donohue, was Korean and Irish.

One of the oddest mixes I've heard of actually grew up in Canada, where such mixes seem to be more common. She was half Laotian and half German, with the mother being white.

In the USA, a friend of mine has extended family in Chicago who is:

white male/black female
black male/white female
black male / other males
half Cuban latino, half black/white female

very intermixed family, and hte next generationwill be very diverse.

now that I did not know (or knew at one point and forgot lol)...to be honest, I just picked two random nationalities and thru them together, since it was something I've never personally seen.

Depends on how you define Hispanic.

I know of several African/Cuban combinations in the USA and in Cuba. Usually an African (in this case, a couple of Congolese and a couple of Nigerians). Of course, the Cuban in those relationships is Afro-Cuban as well.

Again.......you have to define Hispanic. Cuban immigrants are Hispanic (Spanish-speaking, Spanish-influenced culture), but can be from literally any race.

Are you talking about, say, a person who is the son of Puerto Rican woman (of whatever race or mix) who is married to an African-born man? That type of combo?

I know some Cape Verdean/Hispanic or Latino combinations in the Boston area.

I have a good friend who is 1/2 Puerto Rican, 1/4 Cuban, and 1/4 Hungarian. It's the Hungarian that gets me. And he has a Hungarian last name. And his son is all that with a black mother. Now that's a mix.
