Mixed race children - the future of the world

ART (assisted reproductive technique) clinic statistics in India reveals that more and more Caucasians are demanding Indian egg donors instead of their own race, resulting in babies of mixed race.

Culturally, we have evolved a lot in the last century. Many walls were broken (Berlin wall was definitely a big one) including that of religion, race, economy, color, nationality etc. Now a days, we are getting to see lot of colored people among Americans, Europeans and Australians.

This definitely means that humans have imbibed to accept other fellow humans as equals, even though they look or behave different.

It was fascinating for me to apprehend from a Caucasian traveler that, out of all the countries he had visited, Iran was one of the best places. (He had visited almost every single country in the world!) It suddenly dawned on me, how biased I was about the Middle Eastern countries.

When a dark, short, thin surrogate mother carries a chubby, blonde and long baby for a Caucasian, it is really intriguing. I feel, this is when humanity salutes equality. Same goes when a Caucasian asks for an Indian egg donor, because he wants to have a baby of mixed origin.

The number of highly successful people from mixed origin is pretty long. To name a few, it includes American President Barack Obama (African American), great golf player Tiger Woods (African, American, Chinese, Thai and Dutch inheritance!), renowned super model Naomi Campbell (African , Jamaican and Asian inheritance), Formula one champion Lewis Hamilton, Actor Keanu Reeves (English, Irish, Portuguese, Hawaii and Chinese apparently lineage in him) and Artist Sean Paul ,(Jewish, African , English and Chinese mix of genes !)   

Many British studies  published  proves that mixed race children are more attractive and successful. Scientifically, we all know that mixed breed gives better outcome in plant and animal kingdom. Inbreeding always leads to exaggeration of the faulty genes leading to their expression and many diseases are common in such races including infertility and repeated miscarriages. Due to this occurrence, some races are nearly extinct or have become a minority.

This phenomenon was proved in a research where pheromones were tested on college students. The girls were reportedly more attracted to the pheromones of those guys, who had the genetic composition which was more distinct than their own.

So it is time we start looking for partners or donors from different race, in case we are expecting smart kids. I sincerely hope that mixing of religions and races might just stop all the religious fanaticism prevalent today.
