Race Mixture

Interbreeding between races; miscegenation. Race differences are relative, not absolute; any race is able to breed freely with any other race of the same species. Racial admixture is sometimes measured by the proportion of a discrete trait, sometimes called a race marker, that has been introduced by gene flow from one to another population.
