Like, a Caucasian and an Asian, is there any chance of a caucasian child? I'm not worried about it, I just had a debate about it and couldnt find anything regarding it on google. I thought it was like, a dominant gene. I hope no one takes this the wrong way and gets offended. (As often happens around here...lol)

If I remember from univerisity classes the asian gene would take precedence over the caucasian.

Asian is Chinese, just to clarify that hp2.
Asia = the continent that China and Japan and those places are on, thus Asia people = Asian.

My bil is white and his wife is Chinese. Their son looks Chinese, just like his Chinese cousins. The only thing his is hair. His dad was blond growing up and he seems to have a light brown hair instead of the black. In a few pics I have of him, he looks almost blond.

That's really cool, I never knew the gene that makes people appear "Asian" was dominant. I know of a couple, he looks Caucasian, she looks Asian, and all their kids look Asian. Never thought about it before. I would have thought it would have been like with Caucasians and Blacks, where the child could look like either parent, or like a mix. Are there other races this happens with, where the child will definitely look like one parent with the dominant gene? Or is Asian the only one? I wonder if the "Asian" appearing kids will grow up to have "Asian looking" kids if they mate with a Caucasian, or is the appearance "watered down", so to speak?

My cousin had a child with an asian man and one child with a black man. The child she had with the asian man has blond hair like our side of the family and the skin is not as dark as asians but not completely white. You can see the asian in the eyes though but that is about it. My other cousin who's father is black she is really really black with very dark curly hair.

Asian people are more dominant then Caucasian people. Why do you think the USA had to steal (Asian) technology for years to play catch up.


Face it people white folk as just Dumb when it comes to other cultures.

No kidding.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but I hope so. You seem to be the only one who understands fractions..lol

I think it goes without saying that a child born of caucasian and asian parentage would share both genes. The question would then be which would the child look like. ...of which either is possible.

If a child were born of a french mother and an italian father then the child would not be either french or italian but rather a combination of both.

So I guess the answer to your question "Can asian people have non-asian children?" would be no.

I know a couple who are both white and have two Chinese daughters. Figure that one out.

caucasian........cauc / asian


For the peoples actually from the Caucasus, see Peoples of the Caucasus.

Huxley's map of racial categories from On the Geographical Distribution of the Chief Modifications of Mankind (1870). Caucasians, marked in red, are identified as occupants of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, through to Northern India.
Meyers Blitz-Lexikon (Leipzig, 1932) divides "Caucasiod types" into: Nordic, Dinaric, Mediterranean, Alpine, East Baltic, Turks, Bedouins, Afghan.
Georgian girl (1881 photograph).
The famed exemplary Georgian skull Blumenbach discovered in 1795 to hypothesize origination of Europeans from the Caucasus.The Caucasian race, sometimes called the Master race,[1][2] is defined by the Compact Oxford English Dictionary of Current English as "relating to a broad division of humankind covering peoples from Europe, Western Asia, and parts of India and North Africa" or "white-skinned; of European origin" or "relating to the region of the Caucasus in SE Europe".[3] The concept originated in attempts chiefly by 19th c. European thinkers to develop a method of racial classification. This typological method was discredited and the concept is not relied on in scientific work related to humans.[4][5]

People in Europe, especially in Russia and nearby, generally use the term "Caucasian" exclusively to identify people who are from the Caucasus region or who speak the Caucasian languages.

They did and found out that the DNA from back then was very similar to Asian DNA found today.. seriously i am not BSing.

I do believe it was more like Mongolian Decent.

Out of the three major races, caucasian is at the bottom of the list.

1 Asian, 2 Negroid, 3 Caucasian.

The race, take precedence in that order. Which ever race is higher takes a bigger impact on how the child would look.

1 and 3 = Will look more asian.
1 and 2 = Umm Tiger Woods.
2 and 3 = Darker Caucasian.

In reality, the caucasian blood line have been tainted many times over in the past thousand years. Alot of the most beautiful women in this world, have non-tained lineage. Meaning, their race is the same, generation after generation. Not just race, but ethnicity as well.

I think the question itself is racially skewed.

I think that any person growing up in a predominantly Asian Culture would look at a mixed race Asian/Caucasian child and see the Caucasian genes as being predominant because these features would be more obviously different thant the majority of people they see. They would view these same children as being Caucasian children of the parents and not Asian.

In our society we are quicker to notice the Asian features that dominate and not so much the Caucasion ones.

In any case, there is no one single gene that someone passes on to make someone 'Asian'. It is a complex combination of dominant and recessive traits from both parents that make a child unique, regardless of race.

ya well i was kinda being sarcastic
lol
didnt know if he meant physical traits, like outward appearances ....overall, (obviously) the child would have traits from both parents, physically i guess whatever is more dominant...and that i dont know about all that genetic, biological stuff, although it is interesting

Isn't it also true that when one of the parents is black the child is almost always black or more black than white?
