    Scientist: "There Are Now More Mixed-Race Children Than Ever Before - and That is Something for Us All to Celebate"

    The pro-mixing propaganda of an Indian scientist. Classic arguments pro racemixing, like avoiding inbreeding, genetic diversity and other BS.

    Just two weeks ago in Louisiana, an American Justice of the Peace made international news for refusing to issue marriage licences to couples who were not of the same race. He said he had taken the decision because he believed that mixed-race children would not be accepted by their parents' communities. Whether this was genuine concern for a real social problem or was born of a more atavistic notion that there is something inherently, biologically wrong with mixing races, we can only speculate. Either way, his position was quite illegal, and his conduct is being challenged.

    The sentiment, however, is one that is also shared much closer to home. Nick Griffin, the chairman of the BNP and a member of the European Parliament, has made his party's stance on mixed-race children clear. Miscegenation, he says, is "essentially unnatural and destructive", and mixed-race children "are the most tragic victims of enforced multi-racism". The BNP says that it does not, nor will it ever, "accept miscegenation as moral or normal".

    As a person from the Indian ethnic minority in this country, I am sorry to say that I am familiar with this attitude. The most recent census in England and Wales found that people from my South Asian background were the least likely of the minorities to be married to someone from a different ethnic group.

    Our relatively low inter-marriage rate might be explained by our cultural as well as racial differences, and our predilection for holding tightly to our caste systems and religions. When someone like me chooses a partner of another race, some family member is guaranteed to ask the same question as that Louisiana Justice of the Peace: "But what will the children be?"

    I can answer that question now. The answer is that my daughter, and approximately 400,000 other children like her in Britain today, is mixed race. Families like mine are on the rise – nearly one in 10 British children now lives in a mixed-race family, a figure that is six times higher than it was when I was a child. In fact, mixed race people are the fastest-growing minority in this country, a trend that is set to continue. Even in my community, traditionally inward-looking when it comes to choosing partners, the proportion of mixed marriages has increased from 3 per cent to 11 per cent in the space of just 14 years.

    A report in January 2009 produced for the Equality and Human Rights Commission noted that this rise in interracial relationships can be "taken to be a thermometer of ethnic relations". If that is the case, then majority and minorities seem to be warming to each other at an unprecedented rate. But set against this backdrop are the voices that support the BNP's ideal. They shout about not mixing races, not diluting culture, not diluting genes – about keeping races "pure".

    As the mother of a mixed-race child and as a scientist, I wanted to challenge these ideas of racial purity. All my instincts as a geneticist make me question the notion of what it means to be "pure". As for it being a good thing, the potential for inherited disease in children of related individuals, or people from small communities, tells us that inbreeding is generally not a great idea. And there are very few communities in the world that are sufficiently inbred to be able to confer upon themselves the dubious honour of being "pure-bred".

    On the other hand, nature repeatedly shows us that genetically, diversity must be better: more diverse genes mean that animals are better at adapting to changing environmental conditions, and at fighting off and surviving infections.

    But the combination of inbreeding being bad and diversity being good has flung open the doors for another claim about what it means to be mixed-race. The idea sounds simple enough. If inbreeding is bad, then the opposite – outbreeding – should be good. It makes sense, some suggest, that people might be genetically better off if they were mixed race. The anecdotal evidence is writ large in the over-representation of Britain's tiny mixed-race population in the arts, music, modelling and sport. Mixed-race people account for 30 per cent of the current England football team in a country where they make up only 2 per cent of the general population.

    But to explore claims of biological advantages and challenge ideas of purity, neither anecdote nor instinct is enough. A scientific approach requires data and evidence, and it needs to stack up. But there's a problem: scientific research on race is hard to come by, and it's not difficult to see why. Science and race have long been uneasy bedfellows. After all, the shoddy, prejudiced half-truths dressed in scientific clothing that were touted as hard fact hit a shameful low 70 years ago, when they were used by people with a dangerous agenda. The unyielding divisions used by some anthropologists in the early years of the last century had humanity neatly sectioned into an absolute and immutable hierarchy in which northern Europeans were at the top. It was embraced by the Nazis, and culminated in the horrors of their final solution. In the aftermath, scientists would no longer recognise "race" as a useful categorisation. Many would not even acknowledge differences between people at all.

    A friend of my wife is from Brazil and an asian portugese mix. I talked to her for a while about this and she told me, she doesn't know where she belongs too. She doesn't have a race or culture. And she said she had been missing it. She is still beautiful and worked as a model in her prime time. That covered it up for a while. But not having roots was and is painful for her.

    India is a country of mixed-race people, so it should be expected.

    Most of them are very weak and diseased. Any Negro or European is stronger, any European or Mongol is smarter. These people are the master of nothing.

    It is misleading to construe different geographic strains of genetic breeding as a function of genetic diversity. Oh well...

    This may sound harsh but i think we need to sterilise them.not just beause of the genetic problem that they have and will spread if they were to reproduce,but also because of the worlds population rising rapidly.

    Why let those who have genetic problems and who are a threat to healthy beings compared to those who are,dare i say it,of an original race and normal survive when we should be thinking about stabilising our planet?
