The Great Miscegenation
By historical times, the Greeks were an homogeneous population speaking a standard language. The Greek tribes of the Illiad such as the Danaans and the Achaeans have been forgotten and no one even knows who they were. By the time of Plato, the original inbred clans and tribes have disappeared and the Greeks were outbreeding all over the Mediterranean (when not practicing their pederastic habits). When the apostol Paulus started to spread the Good News, it was obvious to the Greeks that all humanity were brothers (in Christ) and that a Catholic (universal) church made total sense.
Was this mixing of tribes spontaneous? I know of no historian giving a damn to this inbreeding-outbreeding issue, so I have to use my own head. The process started in Athens after it lost the war against Sparta. Sparta was a racist-militarist nation, following a proto-Nazi policy of extermination and subjection of its neighbors. Then Athens had a lucky break and by 510 BC Cleisthenes had the way clear to re-form Athens. Athens, like all Greek polis, were formed by a a population of "tribes" ruled by inbred clans and families. We can see that the ruling class of Athens was not so, it was not a class in the Marxian sense but a few families linked by blood. BTW, Cleisthenes himself was a member of the inbred family that had ruled Athens for centuries, and his daughter married within the family, but he decided that inbreeding was bad for the State. In order to destroy these great families that have dominated Greek history from the Antiquity, he dissolved all blood-linked families and re-formed the population. Attica (Athens's hinterland) was then peopled by four tribes divided into ninety inbred clans. Cleisthenes (pic) wanted to direct the loyalties of this population toward the city as a whole, creating something inexistent: Athenian patriotism.
Cleisthenes abolished of a stroke all four ancient tribes and created ten new ones in their place, each with its patron saint or eponymous hero sanctioned by the Oracle at Delphi. Each new tribe was divided into three sections - living in geographically distant areas - called deme. Democracy (government by the demes, reminding me of "All the Power to the Soviets!") was invented. The Greeks even lost their names - instead of being called Odysseus son of Laertes son of whatever, like today's Osama Bin Laden and other Arabs, they were called Thales of Milethus, or Xenophon the Athenian.
What had Cleisthenes achieved was a mixed, identity-less, Greek-speaking, patriotic population, that could be easily governed by a small self-selected committee or Boulos without any tribal attachment. Athens's immigration and naturalization rules were abolished and the concept of "citizen" was created. Athens was re-filled with peoples from all the Earth and grew to become a half-million strong city ruling about five million indifferentiated pig-Greek speaking humanity.
After a few centuries of success, Athens was replaced by Rome, another city with absolutely no family-racial awareness. Anyone could become a Roman citizen and live everywhere in the Roman world with all the privileges and State-protection of the citizenship. Paulus, when persecuted by the authorities, invoked his right as a Roman Citizen to practice a legal religion, that is, Judaism.
Conclusion: The current mixing of races taking place in America (and Israel too) is an artificial policy of the government, to create a homogeneous, governable, loyal to the State, population. It has happened before: Alexander imposed outbreeding on his subjects, Cleisthenes abolished the tribes and clans and artificially created new ones, Rome itself was created by miscegenation. One can predict that the governments in the Middle East will soon start mixing their peoples too, to create American-style patriotic democracies.
