    Genetic Harms of Race Mixing?

    I apologize if this thread has already been made, but I was just wondering what all of the genetic harms/defects/possible implications/etc are of a mixed raced offspring. I'm asking because I am in a bit of an argument with this terrible mess of a girl that is saying race mixed children are the greatest to have and that there is nothing wrong with it.... (and she is white, which is the other bad part). If you guys could name some genetic harms/defects/etc (we all know the harm it poses outside of the genetic defects category) I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    I don't know about genetic harm, but people who are mixed race have a difficult time finding things like bone marrow doners if they get cancer. Someone who is white/black cannot get marrow from someone who is all white or all black, they need a mixed race donor. And there aren't many mixed race donors out there.


    Bottom line is there no real benefits to being mixed race. You won't be smarter, healthier, stronger etc. You might have some identity issues though.

    Google shows a few studies that mixed race children have more health problems, but I have no idea how accurate those are.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.
