    I have read too much inbreeding leads to less healthy offspring in some ways, I guess incest would be the most extreme inbreeding. Your closest blood relatives would be your own family.

    So your next closest blood relatives would be other people who share similar ancestry (ethnic groups, races, etc).

    I also heard, having a diverse gene pool is good, because if a virus started killing people off and the people shared similar genes, it could wipe out the whole population. But because there was that differing gene, the virus did not affect that different/other gene for some reason.

    Ethnic mixing is good, in some ways. The above would be one way, another way would be more variety in people. The only reason I could think of why someone would oppose ethnic mixing, is if they did not like that ethnic group.

    I guess if i compare Mexican population and American population, It's really rare to see here people alleric to anything, it's almost unexistant, Also mental disorders like Anxiety, Depression, etc, but i guess that's because we have sun almost 365 days of the year
    mexicans are prone to develop diabetes because mexico has one of the highest obesity rates on the planet

    but diabetes is relativelly rare and not even a main cause of death in south america for example

    Mixing has occured FOREVER

    ever since the first man came outta Africa and started migrating around the world mixing was happening!!!

    I remember reading about a Family in Kentucky USA who kept inbreeding and mayying only between cousins and their skin ended up turning blue and they all died out.

    Mixing with people from different genetic background is usually beneficial for health. The phenomenon is known as heterosis where potentially harmful homozygous alleles are now matched with a different, healthy one. That may however lead to dilution of some advantageous genes, too. Inbreeding among Ashkenazi jews, for example, has lead some alleles that affect intelligence to enrich in their isolated populations which again has led to superior intelligence. Major outside admixture is likely to make them dumber.

    i disagree. ashkenazi may have an higher level of intelligence because of a favourable social environment, which encourages people to become more culturate. for an ashkenazi jew culture was perceived as a richness, even more important than its material counterpart.

    if you read Isaac Singer's tales there is a number of cases in which poor, but educated jews were chosen by the richest men of their community to marry their daughters.

    However, I think they are smarter than the average human being. Look at their average IQ (I think it's 113). As far as I know it can be explained by natural selection: stupid Jews were unlikely to survive the many centuries of persecution that they have suffered.

    I am not exactly in favor of ethnic mixing, especially in today's world. As for physical health, according to a UK National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) study in 2002-2006, people from the mixed ethnic groups had a significantly lower risk of getting cancers than whites. As for mental health, this study by researchers at the Asian American Center on Disparities Research at the University of California, Davis, concludes that biracials are twice as likely as monoracials, to be diagnosed with a psychological disorder. Half-breeds often have identity problems because of society's ridiculous focus on the arbitrary, and these problems can grow into full-blown mental illnesses as the children approach adulthood. I pity them actually.

    I don't think it improves much, but it doesn't exactly hurt either.
