mixed-race couples in adverts? Is it because they're trying to show they're racially tolerant, displaying they're agreeing with current philosophies or merely saying 'it's ok to have mixed-race couples'? If it's for any of these reasons I'm ashamed and disgusted.

Why?

BECAUSE IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

It is not only live actors, mixed race couples are shown in cartoon versions as well. Interesting to note however the mixed face couples are mainly formed with a white wife and a black father, does this send the message that women are less racist than men? Why does it always have to be black and white, why not white and Asian or white and Chinese, come to that why do...

I live in Hampshire and worked within the local NHS providing services for elderly people (over 60) and I retired 11years ago. I couldn't count the number of mixed ethnicity couples I met in the course of my work which was mostly rural and semi rural.
My family still lives there so I regularly visit.
Suppose it depends where you go and what you do then, but I see plenty in Hereford.

It's simples, we are two times English and one British Indian, maybe not a typical household, but who cares?
it always has been what?
Ironic really. 48% of black families are fatherless. (compared to 25% overall)
What we need is a great big melting pot, fill it up to take the world and all it’s got.........pour out multi-coloured people.

An old songs lyrics.
David; //What we need is a great big melting pot, fill it up to take the world and all it’s got.........pour out multi-coloured people. //

The problem with that idea is that you wouldn't have only multi- coloured people, you would spread out the human genome so much, and have an 'average' human being, no chess grandmasters, at least to compare with those of now, and no record-breaking athletes.
A human would be like a camel; a racehorse designed by a committee.
It is OK to have mixed-race couples, so I am not sure what point you are trying, but failing to make.
david small, the lyric is actually "coffee coloured people" Khandro I am not sure that your statement about losing intelligence and talent is correct.
@David Small.....Perhaps Khandro has got it right. Anyway, here's the song you have in mind :-



Hans

lyrics
What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score
