I Think this hybrid vigour theory is a poor excuse to mix-race, it just encourages ones' lust of the opposite sex not of your own race which creates
Racial purity, or the maintaining thereof , biologically speaking , actually leads to genetic degeneracy, and disease,a s witnessed in inbred
families. That's all races are, the same families basically One just need apply this to a human scale, and see that race mixing, biologically
speaking is the best thing for the human species. No matter how you feel about it.
I don't buy one ounce of this race purity=genetic degeneracy crap. Yeah if one marries a cousin, and their offspring marries their cousins and so on.
But to apply this to a race as a whole is laughable. Most of the Races have been around for thousands of years establishing themselves and in most
cases advancing to their present day state. If your above statements were true, people with 10 fingers& 10 toes would be a rarity lol or some of the
races would have been whiped out solely by inherited diseases from staying pure-blood. This is not the case... yellow, black, red, white and every
color in between, each race has more than enough diversity to avoid genetic degeneracy. Maybe if the sport legends and brainy geniuses of today were
all of mixed race then there would be some substance to your opinion but I fail to see any truth in it.
Much evil has come from the racist mentality but let us not forget that this mentality has created all of the inumerable, unique and beautiful
cultures of the world which we delight in. This so called "ignorant behavior/way of thinking" is the reason why all of these beautiful cultures
still exist today. Isn't it ironic that racism is thought to bring a race to its end through inbreading/creating less diversity and yet it is this
mentality that is responsible for all diversity?
First, the human race cannot be subdivided in any logical way into definitive 'races', there is only one race, the human race. As for your advice
to not create avoidable problems.... the only problems are those created by people who have an issue with the relationship. So who is the victim, and
who is the problem? I wasn't able to discriminate as to who I fell in love with, and I thank Spirit for that. I would have missed out on many fond
memories, and very valuable lessons. In particular, I would never have known the pervasiveness of extant hatred and ignorance regarding two people in
love who happen to be from very different ethnic backgrounds. At first I was incredulous, then shocked, then angry, and finally, disgusted. The way
people can be so mean to others, and so judgemental, based solely on physical traits or ethnicity, is sickening.
I guess I could have ignored my heart, and avoided all the crap that my love and I have had to endure, but I never would do that. Even with all that
hateful and derisive treatment, the joys far exceeded the annoyance of having to listen to all that bigotted nonsense. I decided long ago that hate
is really just a defence mechanism for fear, and I am so thankful that I do not have to carry that burden of unfounded fear and hatred around. I have
enough concerns already.
Regarding diversity, I am a huge supporter of people preserving their heritage and culture. I love to try new foods from different parts of the
world, learn new words, and see different styles of dressing. And there is no need to consider ones own culture as superior in order to preserve it.
We can do so as equals, so I think I disagree with you that segregation and ethnocentric egotism are the source of that diversity, nor are they needed
to preserve it. Love is all you need.
