    It's called progress.
    Destroying one's heritage,bloodline, culture and distinct identity is ''progress'' ?

    It destroys it how? Doesn't that actually make it deeper? You must really hate our founding fathers then.

    Not all of us base our identity around the amount of melanin in our skin, or what a bunch of dead people did hundreds of years before we even existed, or on a culture we didn't even grow up in.

    To me, one of the only differences between the same sex marriage and interracial marriage debates, is that the latter has already been resolved.

    I do NOT hate our founding father's. Here let me give you an example, if i bring you a wild man from the bush's of papua new guini, who run's around naked dancing around a fire, and never bath's, and then i bring him and introduce him to your refined, civilized, intelligent, and modern adult daughter, and they get together and create a child, you don't think something got dilliuted and destroyed?

    You speak as if color is the ONLY thing that is a factor. That's a very narrow view of the issue.

    No. It just adds to the culture of the family. It is not his fault that he lived in a tribal region; he did not choose where he was born. Does it not dilute the strength of humans if you keep the gene pool relatively shallow?

    And how could you not hate the founding fathers? There are countless light skinned descendants of the founding fathers.

    Well, what else is there? What do I share with my distant relatives other than color? I don't speak their language, I didn't grow up in their culture, and I'm a separate human being living in a totally different context.

    I honestly think the whole idea of identifying yourself by something as meaningless as your most apparent lineage is ridiculous. What on earth does that have to do with you as a person?

    Culture does have significance, which is exactly why it ought to be expanded.

    Sounds like it might be fun to me, lol. Everyone needs to get in touch with the wild side every now and then.

    And no, it wouldn't dilute or destroy anything, but would likely add some new dimensional qualities to the newly created human.
