Our multiracial blends also reach beyond these American shores. The Independent newspaper in the UK (January 2006) cites that the number of mixed race people in Britain grew by seventy-five percent during the 1990’s and by 2001, roughly one and a half percent of the population identified as mixed race. The study also cites research that claims mixed race peoples have evolutionary advantages, that genetic diversity can decrease chances of contracting diseases. Goldilocks, look out!
