The Dailymail came out with an article today about how mixed race relationships are making us taller and smarter. It also says that children born to genetically diverse parents are more diverse. While this is true, they fail to realize certain other things when it comes to mixed race relationships/mixed race kids.
A study has found humans today are taller and more intelligent than their ancestors, and the cause has been linked to the rise in more genetically diverse populations.
Wrong. People are taller and more intelligent today because of better nutrition. That has NO link to genetically diverse populations. Of course they’re more intelligent than their ancestors. Back in 1945, only 70 years ago, in America the average white IQ was 85. We are smarter than out ancestors back then, is it genetic diversity? No, it’s not.
Miscegenation lowers IQ in the white but highers it for the black. It’s a net loss for whites to miscegenate but a net gain for a lower race to miscegenate with whites. People don’t realize the host of problems that come with being mixed-race which I will explain later in this post.
And those born to parents from different races and cultures also tend to have higher levels of education.
I don’t know where they got their information from so I can’t quite comment on this part of the article. I’m assuming it’s in the paper, but I can only find the abstract, not the PDF. With some anecdotal examples, I know some mixed race black and whites with a white mother, they both were high achievers in high-school as well as in sports. The brother plays for the NFL while the sister plays pro women’s basketball in Europe. That’s just one anecdote, though, I live in a small rich town so of course we would have a few outliers. I wouldn’t use that as a basis to say emphatically that yes, mixed race kids do tend to have higher levels of education. We know that Asians have a higher level of education slightly more than whites who have a level of education way more than blacks. As said in the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study, mixed black and white kids have a better prenatal environment.
According to Rushton and Jensen in THIRTY YEARS OF RESEARCH ON RACE DIFFERENCES IN COGNITIVE ABILITY, at the end of the study the researchers came to the conclusion that in their breakdowns of the children at age 17, that the mother’s IQ was the single best predictor of the adopted child’s IQ when all other variables are accounted for, but then go on to say:
“the social environment maintains a dominant role in determining the average IQ level of Black and interracial children and that both social and genetic variables contribute to individual variations among them” [pg 259]
Levin and Lynn (1994) then disputed Weinberg et al’s conclusion with a hereditarian alternative. That the average IQ and school achievement scores of the black children directly reflected their amount of African ancestry. At both age 7 and 17, the adopted children with 2 black parents had lower average IQs and worse school achievement tests than those with one black parent and one white parent. So right here, in the MTAS, it shows that mixed-race people DO score better than just blacks, which is attributed to their white ancestry. Weinberg et al responds to their claims with this:
Waldman, Weinberg, and Scarr (1994) responded to Levin (1994) and Lynn (1994) with further regression analyses that indicated the children’s preadoptive experience was confounded with racial ancestry, and so an unambiguous interpretation of the results was not possible. [pg 259]
So we have evidence of mixed race children being better with IQ as well as school achievement tests than full black children. That’s all I’ll say on this matter for now until this full paper comes out.
Where few instances of this occur in a person’s genes, it indicated greater genetic diversity in their heritage and the two sides of their family are unlikely to be distantly related.
Sure, that’s right. But I don’t believe it’s worth the downsides to doing it.
The team found that greater genetic diversity is linked to increased height. It is also associated with better cognitive skills, as well as higher levels of education.
Funnily enough, they just described mono-racial children. As I said earlier, miscegenation lowers IQ, so along with that, it would lower education levels as well.
The only traits they found to be affected by genetic diversity are height and the ability to think quickly.
Yes. “Height” doesn’t really have to do with genetic diversity. Intelligence is negatively affected, if it’s not a white mother. White mother’s have a better prenatal environment than minority mother’s which leads to a higher IQ, as well as the white mother’s IQ being one of the best tells for a child as I said earlier in the piece. “Ability to think quickly” is directly linked to cognitive ability.
However, genetic diversity had no effect on factors such as high blood pressure or cholesterol levels, which affect a person’s chances of developing heart disease, diabetes and other complex conditions.
Wrong. Let’s take a mixed race black and white. Blacks have a higher propensity to have hypertension (elevated blood pressure), diabetes and heart disease. That’ll obviously be passed on to a mixed race kid.
The findings suggest that over time, evolution is favouring people with increased stature and sharper thinking skills but does not impact on their propensity for developing a serious illness.
But it’s not mixed race people who this is talking about, it’s mono-racial people. Talking about the propensity for developing serious illness, it’s true that mixed race people are more heterozygous than non-mixed, but the small boost to disease immunity isn’t worth the slew of health effects.
In Brazil, there’s evidence that ancestry is becoming independent from skin color due to so much mixing. Rio de Janeiro is one of the most dangerous cities in the world with its murder rate. The article, of course, doesn’t mention that, nor does it mention this.
For years now, the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro has made just about every short list for the world’s most violent and dangerous cities. Plagued by violent gun crime, assassinations and drug-trafficking, nearly 50,000 people have died of crime-related violence in Rio between 1978 and 2000.
The city’s crime problem was put on display once again this year for the entire world to see during the annual Carnaval celebration in Rio. Despite the deployment of nearly 10,000 police officers, the festivities were still marred by unusally high instances of robbery, assault and violence. Crime has been an embarrassment for Rio, placing the city’s bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics in jeopardy. Source
Let’s get to some health problems that plague mixed race kids, which along with for instance the dangers of so much mixing as seen in places like Rio De Janerio, that this article didn’t mention.
A study on Black-White mixes in agreement found that ”When it comes to engaging in risky/anti-social adolescent behavior, however, mixed race adolescents are stark outliers compared to both blacks and whites.” This holds true despite being raised in similar environments to mono-racial children.
The more people of different backgrounds who produce offspring = the more types that are harder to match. Multiracial patients have uncommon profiles and since there can be many possible racial and ethnic combinations in multiracial societies, finding a match can still be extremely difficult.
If you become ill with a blood cancer or other disease that requires a stem cell transplant, here’s an uncomfortable fact: Your race matters. Diversity is a strength in much of life, [citation needed!] but it’s a curse when finding a stem cell donor match.
Why things like this weren’t put into the article and only one side was shown, the “good side” of mixing races, beats me. Oh, yea, they have an agenda they’re pushing and want all of us to believe that there are no racial differences.
It’s funny. Far leftists will adamantly say that race doesn’t exist or IQ isn’t real or that IQ tests are biased, yet when things come out that are “positive” for minorities, these same people who were saying so much that those things don’t exist, they all of a sudden start to say things like that. I thought race doesn’t exist, why would they point to examples like this? Things like that boggle my mind how you can say somethings like that so much but then switch up your tune when the opposite is shown to be proven. We need to recognize racial differences.
Without doing so, we will lose our country. I hope we realize this soon before it’s too late and we lost the land we call home. I have hope though that a paradigm shift is coming soon and it will be a rude awakening to those cultural Marxists. The lies they spread in the name of “equality” and “egalitarianism” are simply lies to any intelligent person willing to educate themselves and always ask questions no matter what they’re told. Everyone should always ask questions. That’s how you learn and how you to not become like the mindless drones who just repeat like a parrot what they’re taught.
Always ask questions, especially about issues such as this. The fact that the author of this article didn’t even put one mention of the negatives of being mixed race shows that there is an ideological bias behind the piece and that they don’t want you to know any more than what they’re telling you.
