"Mixed marriage" is actually a Catholic church term for when a Roman Catholic marries a non-Roman Catholic. I think "interracial marriage" is the correct term.

Anyone who studies science should be a proponent of interracial marriage from an evolution and continued existence of the human race point of view--hybrid vigor applies to humans as well. Just look at the Prince of Japan and Prince Charles--that "not quite fully evolved" look is a symptom of not swimming outside of one's own family gene pool generation after generation...
