In a discussion between Yudhishthira and Yaksha, Yudhishthira says that children from inter-caste couples can be treated better compared to the same caste couple if the inter-caste couple undergoes some purification rules

Swayambhuba Manu has declared, that the mixed castes are to be regarded as better than the (other) classes, if having gone through the ceremonies of purification, the latter do not conform to the rules of good conduct, O excellent snake! Whosoever now conforms to the rules of pure and virtuous conduct, him have I, ere now, designated as a Brahmana.'

Are there any other scriptures that explicitly contain the same fact?
