It depends. There are certainly dominant genes and if a pale skin color is dominant in some people those children will be pale. Same would go for dark skin color being dominant.

I don't think it would ever happen between genetics and evolution. Dark-skinned people are that way for a reason.

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.

You sir, are a winner.

I can assure you that they are not.

Please don't start the creepy ass Tom Welling worship shit. It's bad enough that you're allowed to post again, the less we hear about your man-love the better.

well since YOU brought it up.

I doubt it. I don't think we can put aside our differences long enough to all become a beige race.

OP yeah we might all become beige, but there will be "lighter" and "darker" beiges. Look at the African American population. They have "light" and "dark" and its not entirely uncommon to have discrimination between the two.

The amount of time it would take for us to all become genetic duplicates in skin color will take too long. We won't survive until that point IMO.

Edit: A good example would be Brazilian women.

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.

There's also the Burakumins in Japan, or the untouchables in India, etc.

How do you know they're of Polish descent? You have a list of their names?

Edit: They're soccer players; they're not going to have large breasts.

Well, actually if you weren't too busy appreciating the image, they all have their names listed below them.

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.

anyhoo, there will always be the homosexuals to persecute. don't forget about them.

there was a recent story out how the redheads are dying out.

personally, I think the Irish government needs to enact a policy whereby their native women are encouraged to freely mate with any foreigners they encounter. Kinda like what Iceland did....

Well, actually if you weren't too busy appreciating the image, they all have their names listed below them.

The names are quite small and hard to read, but let's see: Silva, Gomes, Garcia, Londel, Lofi (?), Truluoso, Leise (?), Gomez, Sonise, Santos, Cerabante. Yep, you're right; they're all Polish. :confused:

Who cares what their descent is, I'm more concerned (and pleased) that there isn't a single case of not-hawtness on that team. Their tits may not be huge, but somehow that isn't too much of an issue :p

Did you look at the Playboy photos? If not, you don't even really know how little not-hawtness there is on that team.
