The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis.
In 2006, author Alon Ziv published the first edition of Breeding Between the Lines, a haphazard exploration of the idea that mixed-race people are inherently “healthier and more attractive” than people of non-mixed backgrounds.
“The biology of race is a sensitive topic with an ugly history, but Breeding Between the Lines approaches it responsibly,” the book’s website reads. Though Ziv has described his work as a factual, objective”biology book” backed by peer-reviewed studies, it’s a book promoting eugenics for the modern age.
Breeding Between the Lines‘s thesis stands on the other end of the traditional eugenic spectrum with its assertion that multiracial people are inherently superior. From his perspective, the fact that mixed race people are also people of color means that there’s nothing wrong with saying that someone of mixed race is “better” than their peers.
