  •  White extinction scares (0+ / 0-)

    Every now and then, Fox News will run a story claiming that blondes or redheads are in danger of being extinct. It's playing on "race-mixing" scares. It's probably never going to happen that people will all marry someone of a different race, no matter how much the stigma of interracial marriage is lifted.

    Traits go away only when those who possess those are unable to find mates and reproduce. Blonde hair is considered a desirable trait, many people will dye their hair blonde to obtain it.

    Thus, we have no reason to think that blondness would disappear. Wholesale intermarriage would spread the genes for blonde hair far and wide. You would see blondes being born all over the world. All that would change is the distribution of blondes.

    Of course, the facts don't matter, it's just playing to fears that "They're coming to take out women!"
