:Human races don't really exsist. There's no factor to group members of the same 'race' together except for skin color, and similar skin color is no indication of genetic relatedness. Also, humans as a species are remarkably genetically similar, much more so than dogs. So IMO saying mixing two different humans is crossbreeding is like saying mixing two snake morphs is cross breeding- different color, but the same thing underneath.


What about things like jaw shape, head shape, size .I dont believe its quite like crossing colormorphs because a color morph within a species would still have the same physical apperance right? even crossing two people of the same race produces offspring which will be diffrent in apperance than both parents.Im curious in a "pure bred" group of humans isolated from outcrossing would they be more likely to be more similar in apperance size /jaw and head shape/features probably so but i think ill just stick to snakes!!lol im no expert on the human race !
