Few decades, centuries or more?

Come to think of it we're still very 'purebreeds' for thousands of years. I guess it's been exploding in the last 50 years with globalization and the world getting smaller.

I just think it'd be hilarious when there can be no racism since you'll look the same as the other guy.

But then knowing human nature, we'll always find ways discriminate based on wealth, region and culture.

One can only hope that we will overcome the crap the goes along with skin colour. I know that my "halfbreed" children are two of the most beautiful people on this planet.

As far as majority - obviously not in our lifetime, but eventually. Purists will say no but it's inevitable. As long as we're still speaking English in the US...

Yea too bad we'll always find ways to be superficial and discriminate. Same as how we already make fun of Southerners, how French, English and Irish all hate each other despite all being Caucasian.

Didn't Time Magazine show a composite image of a young female composed by merging a dozen different racial faces? The image was certainly attractive.

..go spend some time in China or Japan and discover classism. Classism is grounded in a hierarchy belief system that ranks people according to socioeconomic status, education and family lineage, and other class related divisions. This system leads to a drastic income and wealth inequality. There will always be a racket for the racketeers.

Edit: A good example would be Brazilian women.

People will always find reasons to classify, segregate, discriminate etc. Race is just a very obvious way of separating "us vs. them". When race is not available as a divider, people will come up with other things to fight over. Religion, culture, socio-economic status, family background, georgraphic ethnicity etc etc, sources aplenty.

Not too keen on the hair.

Me neither. I was thinking more along the lines of Brazil's women's soccer team.

Edit: FYI, the women's team did a spread in Brazilian Playboy if anyone happens to be interested.

I think mixed-race people (though kids especially) are generally more attractive than kids with less-diverse lineage.

I'm not under that same impression. I'm a fan of porcelain skin if I had to pick.

Also, I strongly dislike lots of freckles, and Ginger people freak me out.
