I have a question about genome sequence?
Can genes/haplotypes/haplogroups (I am not sure of the correct terminology) that determine ''racial makeup'' ever be ''bred out'' through generations?

Genes are single locations and a haplotype is a sequence of genes close enough that they rarely have crossover recombine them, so the alleles for the genes tends to remain together. This does not mean they never recombine just less frequently. So if two populations of different ethnicity began to merge into a single gene pool the ethnic determinants would recombine. They would be part of a larger gene pool. In the past migration of ethnic groups have carried haplotypes into new gene pools. This has lead to the haplogroup with distinguishing subsets of haplotypes.

Sure. You know that Germany tried this, don't you?
