Super Kids: Interracial Couples Make Taller, Smarter Children Study Says

IR study

This news might upset some crazy racial supremacists out there, and we’re so #notsorry about that. That whole notion that “If God wanted us to mix he wouldn’t have separated the races!” is about as antiquated as the Confederate flag.

According to a study by the University of Edinburgh, children of mixed genetic diversity are kinda…super.

Those who are born to parents from diverse genetic backgrounds tend to be taller and have sharper thinking skills than others, the major international study has found.

Researchers analysed health and genetic information from more than 100 studies carried out around the world. These included details on more than 350,000 people from urban and rural communities.

The team found that greater genetic diversity is linked to increased height. It is also associated with better cognitive skills, as well as higher levels of education.

Sort of shoots the whole notion of a “master race” out of the water, doesn’t it?
