No legit reason against it.
minnymilerza says2015-04-11T22:04:25.4702533-05:00
I agree, Brian. But it's merely an opinion!
minnymilerza says2015-04-11T22:18:03.8586797-05:00
Reece, you'd be surprised.

Anyone took biology AP and learned about outbreeding depression?
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:26:40.1463509-05:00
Well the problem with mixing a black with a white is that the mix child's skin pigments won't be as well suited to either europe or africa in comparison to the natives of the race.
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:26:55.9176476-05:00
I mean region
minnymilerza says2015-04-11T22:27:02.1419279-05:00
Heil, what's outbreeding depression?
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:28:06.7870847-05:00
Well different populations (i guess in this case races) interbreed the hybrid created will not do as well as the individuals of the parent population
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-04-11T22:28:48.2249727-05:00
@minnymilerza: heil is a troll on DDO. At the moment, he's creating a new account every time he's banned and just got to the 34th. The best policy is to ignore him.
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:29:52.6778483-05:00
Let's say a specie of snakes have 2 populations. 1 population is native to the arctic while another is native to the tropic. A hybrid of the 2 populations won't be as good in the artic as the pure artic population individuals nor will it be as good in the tropic as those native to there respectively
reece says2015-04-11T22:31:14.2071199-05:00
@heil34 Why is that? Does it depend if the majority of the "parent population" are inherently racist.
reece says2015-04-11T22:32:52.5272425-05:00
@heil34 Yet humanity molds their environment. Your argument is illogical.
reece says2015-04-11T22:33:18.5195091-05:00
It's*
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:34:12.7525001-05:00
Well if snakes in the arctic have thicker skin to conserve heat while those in the tropics have thinner skin to release heat, then the hybrid will have an intermediate skin thickness. However because it's skin is thinner than those in the arctic then it will be outcompeted by those native to the arctic. If it is put in the tropics it's skin will be thicker than snkaes native to there and it won't be able to maintain homeostasis as easily and be outcompeted
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:35:30.6921479-05:00
Is a black white hybrid or a pure black gonna be more resistant in the sahara desert to UV rays, well obviously the pure black
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:37:29.6265536-05:00
And why make all the effort to mold your environment and make vitamin d supplements for black white hybrids when you could only let whites breed so no vitamin d supplements need to be used
reece says2015-04-11T22:39:01.6000919-05:00
@heil34 humanity can mold it's environment extensively e.g. We don't need to evolve gills to swam under water for hours.
reece says2015-04-11T22:44:59.3012129-05:00
Adaptation in all forms has become obsolete when it comes to living in harsh environments for the human body.
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:47:03.1004321-05:00
Well as far as i know, no racial group is better adapted to marine habitats than any other groups simply because all humans are terrestrial however racial groups differ most obviously in skin pigment. Blacks would be better with more intense UV rays and other rays in order for vitamin D to penetrate their skin while whites would be better with less UV rays due to less resistance to it and they can absorb vitamin D easily. Africa fortunately present the ideal environment for blacks while Europe present this ideal environment for whites. Could you create an artificial environment that best suits hybrids? Yes you could but it'd be very costly to create a specific room with specific light intensity best suited for the hybrid. Could you give vitamin D supplements or Sunblock? Yes but those cost money and industrial power that could be going elsewhere and vitamin d supplements like all medication has side effects and sunblock can cause skin cancer so it's best to avoid situations where you would need those products by preventing interracial breeding from occurring.
reece says2015-04-11T22:48:26.8617789-05:00
@heil34 Whos gives a 5h!T. We don't need to rely on adaptation... Your points are void.
reece says2015-04-11T22:50:56.5477575-05:00
@heil34 you're just straight up lying when you say "sunblock can cause skin cancer."
heil34 says2015-04-11T22:51:52.7400620-05:00
True we don't NEED to but in trying to do we create unnecessary industries and problems and in this industrial world where resources are limited, we want industries using resources wisely and not on silly things like overproduction of vitamin D supplements

reece says2015-04-11T22:59:25.3952430-05:00
@heil34 Why would there be overproduction anyway?
reece says2015-04-11T23:00:09.3010202-05:00
@heil34 Can you give me a none American source?
reece says2015-04-11T23:04:30.9315583-05:00
@heil34 you might of been miss lead to believe that sunblock courses skin cancer. Skin cancer has always existed believe it or not.
TheMarquis says2015-04-11T23:06:08.7424001-05:00
@Heil: Then why aren't biracial kids all half dead?
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:06:25.2312830-05:00
Because people skin pigmentations would require them to buy those products in order to stay healthy and someone has to produce them. Of course those industries are necessary but more people that require those products creates higher demand which leads to increase in industry. Industries compete against each other sometimes even if they're not in the same field. If a region is abundant in iron and oil for example an iron mine being set up there could prevent access to the rich oil deposits and vic versa that's why it's critical to keep industries efficient
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:07:15.3139357-05:00
I realize that but sunblock is absorbed into the skin and the toxins in it go to the bloodstream
reece says2015-04-11T23:10:10.4875773-05:00
@heil34 You didn't answer my question. Why would there be overproduction anyway?
reece says2015-04-11T23:11:53.3397731-05:00
Coconut oil goes into the bloodstream too and so does a lot of products, so what?
reece says2015-04-11T23:12:26.0367443-05:00
What toxins?
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:12:59.4135938-05:00
Because we're producing over what we would need to if we discouraged interracial breeding
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:15:14.8254983-05:00

@heil34 you were the one arguing against interracial breeding in the first place.
reece says2015-04-11T23:17:14.4751973-05:00
@heil34 producing over what we would need means there is still room.
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:18:00.9779030-05:00
You were the one arguing against interracial breeding in the first place. I still am
reece says2015-04-11T23:19:20.8844096-05:00
@heil34 Yeah, i miss read. Reply to my latest comment up above.
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:19:51.5265955-05:00
There a study from ca http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/dr-mike-hart/does-sunscreen-cause-cancer_b_3280578.html
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:21:28.3838797-05:00
But you shouldn't wait till there is no room then start regretting, best time to stop is before it's too late
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:21:43.6888722-05:00
Therefore stop before there's no room
reece says2015-04-11T23:28:29.5678145-05:00
@heil34 that isn't a study.
reece says2015-04-11T23:30:17.4314533-05:00
@heil34 So you're pretty much saying we better stop having international relationships before we run out of resources for vitamin tablets?
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:30:30.7306844-05:00
This one mentions the health department of canada http://www.Ewg.Org/enviroblog/2013/06/canada-plans-strong-sunscreen-warnings
reece says2015-04-11T23:30:53.3034503-05:00
Interracial*
reece says2015-04-11T23:33:19.7411292-05:00
@heil34 Oh man this is pathetic.
reece says2015-04-11T23:37:42.5326698-05:00
@heil34 I seriously don't think you're a troll.
TheMarquis says2015-04-11T23:40:17.2638047-05:00
@Heil: I am Creole, French and Native American, and all of my genetic issues can be traced from a German woman. I am in amazing shape. I am an official genius. And I am viewed as highly attractive. Do you think I am a mistake because I am racially mixed? And is the Central European blood what wrecked me?
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:46:08.5066499-05:00
Well if you word it that way it would seem like i'm making a bad argument but my argument also revolves around health
heil34 says2015-04-11T23:49:09.9623603-05:00
Marquis: assuming you aren't hiding anything about your genetics and life from me that could support my argument, Do certain exceptions exist? Yes but I still believe the general norm is that interracial is not beneficial
TheMarquis says2015-04-12T02:18:02.5662818-05:00
@Heil: There are no hidden exceptions.
Stefy says2015-04-12T09:17:59.7541545-05:00
It makes me sad that today people actually still feel the need to ask this question and discus this. It shows how prejudiced the world still is.
minnymilerza says2015-04-12T09:19:10.6493728-05:00
Stefy—we still discuss things like same sex marriage, as well.
benhos says2015-04-12T19:28:47.4645599-05:00
Wait, since when was it illegal?
