Obviously in terms of actual numbers the good old United States. Miscegenation historically has rather negative overtones of racism doesn’t it?

Again, Indians are Caucasian as are Europeans. Europeans, or "whites" as they are often labeled in the United States, are just light-skinned Caucasians. A child of an Indian parent and a European parent may be of mixed cultural/religious heritage, but is not of mixed racial heritage.
That's not quite correct; the Indian subcontinent is populated by two distinct people groups and divides roughly in half. The Aryans of the North are more closely related to European Caucasians while the Dravidians of South India have more in common with the peoples of the African continent, or perhaps Australian Aboriginals.

South Indian Phenotype:

North Indian Phenotype:

Of course these pictures are quite classic and as in any group there is a degree of variation in individuals.

A new study was released from Gallup Poll suggesting that 94% of Americans approve of interracial marriage. I kenw the number would be high, but 94% is about as close a consensus as I have ever seen on almost anything even remotely controversial in the US.

The fact that this is still even a pertinent question in this world is a sad indication of the societies we're still living in

Unfortunately xenophobia is intrinsic to the human condition, on a biological level, with some studies showing that even infants show preferences for people who look like them, somehow without even knowing what they themselves look like.

Anthropologists believe that xenophobia was a survival strategy stemming from when humans lived in small, highly competitive groups. The insanely huge, urban societies and ease of world travel we live with today are far removed from our evolutionary track.

It has taken a concerted cultural effort to come this far. I do think it is worth it, though.

Chile is an almost completely Mestizo nation. This is a common misconception as many have very Native American features. In fact Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and even Cubans could be argued have proportionately more white people than Chile.

As for the US, I do believe it's more race obsessed but I don't believe it's more racist as a whole. Just as in Europe there are also huge variations between regions.

I completely agree with this.

Well that is debatable, as I used to work with a Chilean and she had light brown hair and blue eyes and and she would easily blend in many European countries as native to those countries . She said she is a Chilean of European background. Other Chileans I met don't have very Native American features and seems to have more European features than Native American features, yet some do. However the well off people more tend to be European background Chileans and could afford to move here in Australia. The Native Americans tend to be poorer and usually don't have the expenses to come to Australia. Yet there are exceptions.

Moreover, the traditional lifestyles and cultures of distinct communities were often altered by intermarriage with different ethnic groups, especially in the Western Cape. There is evidence of intermarriage both between Khoikhoi and San populations and with colonial slave populations, as well as with Bantu-speaking farmers and white settlers. https://www.sahistory.org.za/article/khoisan-identity

Maybe before the European settlements before the 17th century of the Cape region the Khoisan were unmixed.
I’m saying the Khoikhoi who mixed with these Bantu, Whites and other populations almost wholly stopped identifying as Khoikhoi. The ones who stayed in the traditional lifestyle are mostly unmixed.

By the way, this thread is not intended to cause any strife or aggitation, so please keep comments friendly and mature. Thanks.
Didn't that word become obsolete, relegated to the dustbin of history, where it belongs, back when that sort of thing became legal?

What's your interest in this topic, btw?
