Nowadays why is it rare in the U.S. for a biracial person to look white unless they're the child of a celebrity(e.g. Karyn Parsons and Eartha Kitts biracial daughters).I've seen many biracial kids in Houston,TX and my southwest Houston neighborhood some look Hispanic,some are light skin and some are brown skin etc and none could pass for white. Are biracial people with Caucasian phenotypes rare nowadays in the U.S. because whites (except black haired whites e.g. Daniel Pearl and Mariane Pearl and son)seldom procreate with blacks and biracial people that are light skin and light brown skin unless they're celebrities?

Depends on your definition of a white person. If you are talking about Scandinavian whites and blondes, then yeah its rare. It also depend on the black ethnic group you are talking about. If the black ethnic group is Somali or Ethiopian, chances are the offspring might come out looking Caucasian.

As for my area, most black/white mixes come out looking somewhat black, an even mixture or Puerto Rican/Mexican looking. A seen a few that did come out looking close to white

So true, if a Somali mixes with a White Woman the child looks white but African American + White Woman=Fugly.

a biracial child isn't ugly just because they're the child of a AA and a white woman.

Why is it that when you mix a quart of white paint with a quart of black paint you only get gray?

Being White is the result of several thousand years of segregation, and White racial characteristics are mostly recessive. Because White racial characteristics only recently evolved and are not completely stabilized, itÂ’s easy to destroy thousands of years of evolution and reduce a White bloodline to mud status.

Because white genes are the weakest in the gene pool.

Because our society has taught you to worship the one drop rule in every way.

Instead of looking at biracial people as being black until being proven otherwise, you should look at biracial people as being not black or white until proven otherwise, it changes your views of them quite a bit once you look at them as truly biracial.
