I disagree. It’s not good to mix genes that didn’t evolve to work together. It breaks down coadapted gene complexes. In fact, the negative effects actually get worse with successive generations. That’s one of those things that experts don’t like to talk about because it’s “racist”. But studies show mixed people have much higher rates of genetic disease; physical diseases but especially mental illness. Which is what one would expect since genetic studies show the human brain has undergone the most evolution over the last 10,000 years.

Also, that "Science agrees with us but the scientists won't admit it because Political Correctness" canard beloved by biologisticists is an excellent demonstration of the Dunning-Kruger effect at work. Because obviously, it could not be that they are nothing but unqualified crackpots grossly ignorant of the underlying science drawing wild conclusions that are most obviously not even wrong to anyone with actual expertise on the topic.

Um, no, it's usually the people who have the least genetic diversity who end up having higher rates of genetic disease. Look at European royalty through the past 300 years when they were only allowed to marry other royalty.

You need as much of genetic diversity as you can have, go the other way and you`ll get to see the consequences during the next flu season.

He has a point. Look at obviously genetically unfit mixed race women like Jessica Ennis, Rosario Dawson, Meghan Merkle...

My sister in law and her husband, both Ashkenazi, had to go through some pretty strict screening to make sure they wouldn't pass on any defects to their daughter. Meanwhile my fiancee and I have very little to worry about because I'm Middle Eastern through and through.
