Optimum balance between inbreeding and outbreeding

Is there a statistically identifiable "happy medium" between inbreeding (incestuous mating, say) and outbreeding (interspecies mating, say)? Nazis seemed to promote inbreeding, whereas sodomists might seek outbreeding. The happy medium, for instance, might be mating one's third cousin twice removed.

I don't think there is a happy medium. The further away from a direct relative the better (as long as you stay within your species).

Women of mixed race are especially hot

Yes. The happy medium is to mate with humans of the opposite sex, that are not biologically related to you.
