Your opinion on racial mixing future

With all these interracial marriages happening each day around us, I am wondering what will we all look like in 200 yrs? will we all have the same physical traits? What will it mean to be European or African? will we continue to say Asians? will the Chinese evolve into something else? what will Switzerland look like also?? this trend is picking up speed at an ever faster rate!! your opinion>?

What we are now is a result of genetic diversification.
I don't see much change in the future. Add evolution to that and maybe a toe or two short but nothing too serious to worry about.

200 years is nothing. Not even a tock on the human clock.

I mean, genetically speaking we're not that different...but the looks do distinguish us...I'm anticipating that we'll all end up with some beige shade instead of white black yellow red etc crap

Re: Your opinion on racial mixing future

I suppose true blondes will become even rarer. Same for all traits that depend on two recessive genes...

Re: Your opinion on racial mixing future

The green revolution in the 40s and 50s proved that genetic diversification could dramatically improve crops. Maybe the mixture of races will create more intelligent people? Hell, we might get peace in the middle east

combined with DB's suggestion of the IQ of blondes, this does not make sense - no blondes in the Middle East...

Most blondes bleach their hair at some point anyway - here in the US at least. They are born blonde and get to be light brown over time but highlight to keep the blonde in their hair because mousy brown isn't glamorous (I personally think it's attractive).

They say mutt dogs are much healther and less prone to genetic illness.

Everyone is mixed race here but there are so many mixed that you can't tell who is what. I think mixed is good. Be with who you love. Multiracial kids are so beautiful. Very cute babies coco!

I am boring and american but my parents are both italian.
