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....

Can you please provide a link to this Iceland policy? ;)

Honestly, I think the Iceland thing was proven to be more of an Urban Myth. It was only about 6-7 years ago when I was hearing about it. An Icelandic buddy of mine, also a geneticist (who you'd figure would know as much about such a policy as anyone), would never corroborate if it was true or not... :(

do you have a link to that story? i'm curious.

redheads or Iceland? ;)

Here's a link to the redheads story. I believe I saw it on NBC TV news, though.

Why go to China or Japan when you can discover it at home? Unless of course you actually buy into the 'American Dream' propaganda. Which I'm sure IGBT does.

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.

Good example being Rwanda during the genocide in 1994. Of course the lighter vs. darker delineation was established by the Belgian colonists.

I also don't see what 'differences' we really have between peoples of color. I can see how folks would have regional differences and class differences, but not issues over pigmentation. In fact that's mostly an illusion - racial superiority and the like are convenient mechanisms for turning groups of poor people against each other to create a buffer of blame and conflict, benefiting of course the elite classes who might otherwise have to bear the malice of the poor.

Link?

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.

I'm stunned that this could actually be the brazilian women's soccer team. More like the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders... wow.

There will always be people who want to be pure, whether that's black, white, Asian, etc. Not everyone wants to melt into one race.

You know what's funny? It seems that the people who push diversity are the same people that push the melting pot ideal. But there'd be no diversity anymore, people would all look the same.

I'm German, Indian, Japanese, Mongolian, Chinese, Filipino, Spanish, Tibetan

What are the ratios on those?

I suggest we go after people based on what hand they write with.

Lefties suffer the oppression of reaching across yourself for a door knob no more!

Didn't they used to think that lefties were agents of Satan or something in Medieval Europe?

Everyone from white supremacists to indian aryans, and other supremacy groups have nightmares and wake up crying like bitches over this very thought. "BAWWWW"

People fixate on specific colors and shapes to often, get over it pussies. We came from stardust, and to stardust we shall return. Everything in between is just for the lulz.

Don't really have a good idea. My mom is Filipino and that comes with the Chinese and Spanish ancestory, somewhere in there is Mongolian and whatever else is there. My dad has the German and Indian. It's my mom's side where I get all the asian stuff.

I can assure you that they are not.

This is easily the stupidest thing I've read in a while, even for you.

It's a shame that you look roughly like the landing pad in my toilet, otherwise your criticism of other people's looks might hold some merit.
