This studys sample came from the National Longitudnal Study of Addolecent Health. It consistent of kids from 80 schools between grades 7 and 12. It found that mixed race kids were more likely than single race blacks, whites, and asians, to smoke, drink, consider suicide, be in poor physical health, skin school, and be suspended. It also found that, compared to Asians and Whites, but not Blacks, they were more likely to have sex and repeat grades. These negative outcomes were found among mixed race children that were black/white, asian/white, and asian/black.
A new study of Chinese-Caucasian, Filipino-Caucasian, Japanese-Caucasian and Vietnamese-Caucasian individuals concludes that biracial Asian Americans are twice as likely as monoracial Asian Americans to be diagnosed with a psychological disorder. Zane and his co-investigator, UC Davis psychology graduate student Lauren Berger, found that 34 percent of biracial individuals in a national survey had been diagnosed with a psychological disorder, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse, versus 17 percent of monoracial individuals. The higher rate held up even after the researchers controlled for differences between the groups in age, gender and life stress, among other factors.
So yes, race is real. What you’ve been taugh in school is a lie.
Real only in the sense that people tend to inherit the physical traits of their parents such as hair, skin and eye colour among other things and people from different regions tend to share some of those traits. The only objective effect of people of different ethnic backgrounds being together is an increased variety in the gene pool creating healthier offspring.
"...smoke, drink, consider suicide, be in poor physical health, skin school, and be suspended. It also found that, compared to Asians and Whites, but not Blacks, they were more likely to have sex and repeat grades."
Smoking, drinking and having sex are certainly not negative actives, they're the best things about being a teenager and mixed race people are definitely not in poorer physical health than people who are comparatively inbred. I'd argue that skipping and/or being suspended from mandatory institutionalised zombification classes is also not necessarily a negative thing but maybe I'm biased having been suspended and then basically dropping out.
Race is only an issue in the minds of people dumb enough to think that it matters.
