Are people of mixed ancestry genetically superior?
Are racially mixed people better off?
It is hard to say how long this hypothesis has been around. Alon Ziv is a scientist who wrote a book explaining this which is titled "Breeding between the lines: Why biracial people are healthier and more attractive." He firmly believes that biracial people are better off than monoracial people at different levels: Health, Beauty, and Intelligence. In this book, he backs up every fact and assertion with sources from relevant scientific journals.
If this is true, it would generally be regarded as a gift of life because marrying outside of your race could be a relatively convenient way to advance the human race. However, I think that more research needs to be done on the parents of interracial people. I think its likely that attractive people are more likely to date outside of their race. I have personally seen a fairly high volume of attractive white women with athletic looking black men. A combination like this is more likely to produce people such as Halle Berry and Tyra Banks.
In addition to attractive people being more likely to breed outside of their race, I have read an article on LiveScience.com which postulates that parents of interracial children invest more in their kids. This could *possibly* explain why biracial people might have higher IQ's than people who are one race. This link can be found at the bottom of the page.
Studies indicate that Asian-European biracial people have higher IQ's than both both Asians and Europeans. Yet there is another study which states that biracial people are more likely to be diagnosed with a psychological problem than monoracial people. You can find out about the former study on Alon Ziv's website, and there is a link to the latter study at the bottom of this page.
If mixed race people are better than the usual mixture because of the combination of different genes, then I think it is important that this knowledge becomes more mainstream so that the general public becomes more aware. Society would gradually accept this as a way to advance the human race. More research needs to be done on this topic.
Some ideas are more politically correct than others even if it seems equally fair. If a modern scientist wrote an article with the subtitle "Why caucasians are healthier and more attractive", this would probably be more controversial than a scientist who claims that interracial people are healthier and more attractive.
