Thanks. Interesting people somehow, but I could never live like that (because of the religious part, not the lack of technology).
The gypsies in Germany also strongly oppose marrying outside their ethnic group, I guess it is even forbidden by their ancient laws. They consider us unclean

Most forms of Christianity never forbade interracial marriage. It's largely a peculiarity of a few forms of US and South African Protestantism.
The Wikipedia article says the murder occurred in Birmingham, not in Louisiana. It could have happened just as easily in La, but thought that I would correct it before someone else got another shot in toward La. The state already suffers from a bad enough image. On second thought, I don't think it would make much difference at this point. Ok it happened in La

No that was a good catch, thanks and I apologize for the error.

But the most unique mix I've seen is my cousins daughter. She's Italian/Armenian/Jamaican. The father is full Jamaican from Jamaica and my cousin is the Italian/Armenian mix.
She's only a baby, but she has very thick brown hair from the Italian side (not nappy), light brown skin (like Beyonce), and honey colored eyes... On her first birthday nobody could get over how exotic and beautiful she was.
Interesting mix. I have a friend who is Filipino/White and when I looked at her, I thought she was Hispanic. Another friend I have is mixed with Costa Rican, Italian, and Polish. Some people mistake her for Middle Eastern.
