Are Calblinasians genetically superior?
The opposite of Tiger's famously outbred family tree are the inbred genealogies found notoriously often among hillbillies and aristocrats. Psychometrician Arthur Jensen, the leading researcher on intelligence, reports that inbreeding reduces "birth weight, height, head circumference, chest girth, and resistance to infectious diseases," because the inbred are more likely to inherit two copies of deleterious recessive genes. Incest is so genetically disastrous that humans have evolved a defense against it: children brought-up together before the age of six almost never grow up to be sexually attracted to each other. For example, many an Israeli kibbutz tried raising toddlers in mixed-sex dormitories, only to find later that none of its young people wanted to marry each other.Mixed Race= Pretty Face?On the other hand, while inbreeding depression clearly hurts, the evidence for "hybrid vigor" among multiracial individuals is less clear, since the returns from outbreeding diminish fairly rapidly the farther out you marry from your own nuclear family. Still, a careful study of biracial white-Japanese children in Hawaii did find that their IQ's were two points higher than those of their monoracial peers of the same socio-economic status.
It's also possible that multiracial individuals are more likely to inherit unusual combinations of traits. For example, Tiger Woods seems to combine the muscularity and masculine charisma of an African-American superstar with the self-discipline and focus of the finest Asian-American athlete.
In summary, inter-racial marriage, long the object of fear and loathing, may turn out to be one route to enriching the human race.
Actor Keanu Reeves and supermodel Devon Aoki have more in common than fame, fortune and good looks—both are also part Asian. Known in popular culture by the Hawaiian term hapa (meaning "half"), people with mixed Asian and European origins have become synonymous with exotic glamour. In Hong Kong and Singapore, half-Asian models now crowd runways once dominated by leggy blondes. In the elite world of Asian fashion, half-Asian is the new white.I'm curious what the board's thoughts are on this. There is definitely a scientific basis for this belief, and people of mixed heritage tend to be very beautiful people, and are slowly dominating the world of fashion and beauty.Eurasians may possess genetic advantages that lead to greater health and, as a result, enhanced attractiveness. That's according to a study, the first to find that hapa faces are rated as more beautiful than European or Japanese faces. Researchers say the finding may extend to other racial mixes as well.
