Would a racist person want to interbreed with the race it doesn't like though?

Or do you mean they would have to interbreed forcefully?

No one is being forced.

Irony being that the proposal itself IS racist, because the solution is a de facto destruction of different races via substitution of a homogenous race.

Eventually, perhaps this will happen. Cheap global travel is at most two generations old, and I read a study (can't find it, but it was conducted in Spain) saying that it is possible to pinpoint someone's parents' birthplace almost to the nearest village just by looking at their genes. Basically, we have absolutely no idea what will happen because this era of globalization is completely new.

However, it will have to happen b itself. People who are racist tend to follow a 'one drop' rule - if somebody is mixed race they only see the other race. Therefore the idea of a 'uniform coffee coloured' population is likely to be equivalent in their mind to their own race being wiped out.

It's more likely that easy exposure to other races, and a mixing of cultures, will lead to tolerance.

It's not only people who are racist who see that though, it's true for most people that they see differences. Take Obama, most people living in predominantly white countries see him as black, it's not conscious it's just how the brain works.

As for a race being wiped out .... well that's true, these races will be wiped out insofar as they will stop existing, is that bad? no, but it's no better than those races existing either. Racial homogeny isn't any better to what we have now, it's just different. Deliberate racial homogeny on the other hand is as it is saying that all of humanity being mixed race is better.

I thought diversity was a strength? at least that's what the left is always shouting. how would this be consistent with multi-racialism?

Not in the slightest. In Brazil for example, which is one of the most heavily mixed race countries, still has quite a lot of racism and divisions between people. Even amongst the mixed race populations there are weird kind's of caste systems, often based on skin tone that have developed other the years.

Racism will always exist in one form or another. People, no matter how mixed they may be or how much exposure to other ethnicities and cultures they recieve, will always be naturally biased towards those who are most like themselves. It's just an inate trait in all humans.

Identity politics are what is at the heart of all this. It matters little whether it focuses on race, ethnicity, nationality, religion or whatever - be in no doubt that people who want to hate will find someone to hate.

No more than mixing say, coke and vodka, 'destroys' either of those two liquids.

Is this a serious comment? Lol.
Not really, but it was intended to show the ridiculousness of the kind of argument I was replying to. When things are co-operatively merged or altered over time, we generally wouldn't say the originals were 'destroyed'. Cultures, languages, class and ethnic groups and more all change over time.

We often say that old cultures, languages etc. have died out though. If that's deliberate I'd say it's fairly accurate to describe them as being killed.

Now if you look at my other post I do draw a(n important) distinction between what is the dying out of races through natural means and it happening deliberately. If you make the conscious decision to encourage interbreeding (as the OP puts it) what you are saying is that it is preferable for somebody to be mixed race than it is for them to be, for example, caucasian. That's the problem here.

Call me biased, but East Asians, closely followed by Europeans have the highest IQ's in the world.

Its no coincidence that these races produce the most successful and prosperous socities.

If the world became a bland mush of grey people, then the world would lose the genius of these races, and everyone would be worse off.

Besides, it's utterly absurd to say that a grey humanity would mean the end of conflict.

the IQ comes mainly due to culture and education not necessarily genetics.
Don't you know social Darwinism is pseudo-science

really?
And no- many have enter interracial relationships and hold racist view. If this were the case racism would have died out long ago. What would happen is that the social construct that is race will evolve so that it still suits the 'whites'- look at Brazil
