If a man who is half Chinese and half white European marries a woman who is fully Chinese,what are the chances of their child looking white?

So if the baby is 1/4 White European and 3/4 Chinese,what are the chances that their children might look white?

Is there a chance the child might look white European in this scenario?

Or is the child almost certainly going to look more Chinese?

How do these things work in genetics?

    People tend to focus on differences with themselves.

    So your" 1/4 White European and 3/4 Chinese" would probably be called "Asian" in the US and "Gweilo" in China ("Gweilo" - "ghost person" - Chinese expression for Westerners).

    What are the chances a 1/4 White European and 3/4 Black African might be considered white in the US? Even a 3/4-1/4?

    Pretty much zero. Someone who is 75% Chinese and 25% European is not going to look white european.

    Less than 5% therefore since it’s less than 5% statistically it’s insignificant Number / you can just say zero chances.

    The Chinese evolved from the original migrants out of Africa. After entering southern China about 60,000 years ago, some of them kept going north of the Yangtze River, and there they adapted to the cold, ice age climate. Then later, probably after the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago, many of them migrated back south and spread their cold-adapted traits to southern China, and much of SE Asia.

    These cold adapted features include a tall and narrow nose bridge, light skin tone, shorter arms and legs, a more rounded torso, thin lips, straight hair, and more body hair (mostly on the legs). These same features are also found in cold adapted Europeans and Mongolians. In SE Asia (e.g. Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines) and southern China, because of admixing, we see many of these features in some of the people. Nevertheless, many people still have some of the original African features that are adaptations to warm climates, such as curly hair, darker skin, flatter and wider nose bridges, fuller lips and longer arms and legs. Caucasians evolved from Central Asians who migrated to Europe 40,000 years ago. The Central Asians in turn migrated out of Africa 60,000 years ago, at about the same time as the ancestors of the Chinese and other non-Africans.Instead of going east, the Central Asians went north from the Middle East after migrating out of Africa.

    Therefore if a white person and a Chinese have a child, the child (depending on how many African features his/her Chinese parent still has), may or may not look much like a Chinese person at all. If his/her parent was from northern China, he/she may look more European than Chinese. Therefore it all depends on the traits a particular Chinese person may possess as to what his/her child may look like.

    pretty much zilch. It would be more probable if both parents each had a white parent.

    How do these things work in genetics?

    Most traits are determined by a pair of alleles (or even several pairs). You have 23 pairs of chromosomes, each pair consisting of one chromosome from your father and one from your mother. When you make a baby, baby randomly gets one chromosome out of every pair of yours...and from its other parent

    Very slim chance. I have never seen it where any race that mixes with Asians not look mostly Asian, when they mix with Blacks is either 50/50 or more Asian
