No im not a racist or KKK or Neo Nazi far from it. Purely from a genetic view im asking this question.
White skin, blonde hair, blue eyes are recessive, means that any slight shade of dark colour mixing with them will turn it dark,
Because slowly it has happened white people are turning darker, it is said that at one time Greece, Italy, Spain had one of the blondest blue eyed people on earth.
Then came Islam for over a 1000 years mixing with dark skinned Arabs and Moors the European in Italy, Spain, Greece and Balkans are now olive skinned, black curly hair.
So my question with the mass amounts of non white people entering the USA and Europe how long will the white race completely be finished out (as it is a recessive gene) as it once did in southern European?
Because as soon as a blond blue eyed girl mates with a darker or even swarther white guy her traits are lost forever the child born out of such as union will be darker
So eventually are we going to loose them nice golden locks, sky blue eyes and soft pale white skin? something that can be traced back to the Ice age?
So is it No more Brad pitt, Dolph Lundgren no more Reece witherspoon, no more Pamela Anderson?
Once again im not racist i have many many good friends of all colours, races, and religions, i'm asking this just from a purely genetic viewpoint

First of all, Arabs are not dark skinned, most of them in fact fair skinned. They are mixed, but they count as in white race.
Plus Spanish people, Portuguese, Italians are as white as I see. Not white as Scandinavian but those countries are Mediterranean if you notice that they have mad suns. They're tanned. They still count white.
Even if it is a recessive gene, it dying out is not something tomorrow will happen. If it happens, the biggest reason is the birth rate or population growth rate in Nordic pale skinned countries. Look at Denmark, Finland etc. their population growth rate is negative, so their ethnicity is dying. This could be the only reason that there will be less white people.
Other than that, it is not true that as soon as a blonde breeds with brunette, it is gonna die out. Anyone who studied basic genetics in high school would know it. Even if you breed two people with dark skin, as long as they have recessive genes you still have the chances of producing white skin person. Rr and Rr let's say, rr is 1/4th chance, the easiest thing.
It is not this easy but let me try to explain. Blonde vs. dark. The guy might have Rr or RR, the girl will have rr (let's assume). The kid will be Rr in the latter for sure and it might happen kid is rr in 1/2 chance in the second. If the kid becomes Rr from rr and Rr, then the kid still has a chance of passing r to the next generation. You do not kill genes when you are reproducing. So what you say is wrong given that there is no mutation of recessive to dominant.
The mechanics in genetics are complicated and not easy to understand. But this is the easiest to explain.0

Genetics don't work that way. Just because a trait is recessive doesn't mean it disappears for eternity when mixed with a dominate trait. The recessive trait simply takes a temporary backseat to the dominate trait until the time comes when that recessive trait interacts with another recessive trait. When that happens, the recessive trait will show itself once again. Just because a person has dark skin, black hair and dark brown eyes doesn't mean they don't carry the genetics marker to produce a blue eyed and blonde haired child.
For example look at Robin Thicke and his Ex wife Paula Patton. Robin Thicke is a white man with blue eyes and brown hair while Paul Patton is mixed (black and white) with black hair and brown eyes. Despite Paula Patton clearly having the dominate traits, they still produced a fair skinned child with blonde hair and blue eyes. How did this happen? Well Paula Patton and Robin Thicke both carry the recessive gene for blonde hair and blue eyes, so when they produced an offspring, those recessive traits found one another and produce a child in which the recessive traits are visible.
Also, Southern Europe have always been tanned with black hair. Blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin is a trait that came out of Northern Europe not the Mediterranean region.
