According to Nat Geo, This Is What The Average American Will Look Like in 2050

What does the average American look like? As time goes on, the answer to that question is becoming more and more complicated.

The country is living up to its melting pot reputation as American faces become less homogenous and more diverse, a phenomenon that renowned photographer and portrait artist Martin Schoeller captured for the October 125th anniversary issue of National Geographic magazine.

The images, which are coupled with the individual’s “self ID” and the box he or she checked to indicate race as specified on the 2000 and 2010 census, are a striking reminder of Americans’ complex cultural and racial origins.

The 2000 U.S. Census presented the question of race differently, allowing respondents the option of selecting more than one racial category, with nearly 7 million Americans identifying as members of two or more races. The 2010 census included changes to more clearly distinguish Hispanic ethnicity as not being a race, with data revealing that whites would no longer be the majority in the country by 2043.

Schoeller’s photographs capture “the changing face of America,” a trend that is no doubt picking up speed with the increase of both interracial marriages and the births of biracial babies. The images also challenge traditional ideas of identity, providing evidence for the fluidity of racial and ethnic classification, which is explored more deeply in the magazine:

On playgrounds and college campuses, you’ll find such homespun terms as Blackanese, Filatino, Chicanese, and Korgentinian. When Joshua Ahsoak, 34, attended college, his heritage of Inupiat (Eskimo) and midwestern Jewish earned him the moniker Juskimo, a term he still uses to describe himself (a practicing Jew who breaks kosher dietary laws not for bacon but for walrus and seal meat).Tracey Williams Bautista says her seven-year-old son, Yoel Chac Bautista, identifies himself as black when he’s with her, his African-American parent. When he’s with his father, he’ll say Mexican. “We call him a Blaxican,” she jokes, and says she and her husband are raising him in a home where Martin Luther King, Jr., is displayed next to Frida Kahlo.

Take a look at the issue cover and some of the images featured below:

    Faces of America's Third World future. European immigrants = successful melting pot. Third World immigrants=FAILURE.

  2. Anonymous

    Yuk. Not ONE pleasing face amongst them. Chris Young has it right. America becoming another Brazil and that's a good thing?

  3. Anonymous

    The first three checked BLACK in the census. Well that's good because the blacks can have them. The last one looks like your typical mixed Asian mongrel.

  4. Racists….racists everywhere

  5. Stephen Brown

    Diversity is a great thing.

  6. Elie Kawkabani

    Yeah because you're just so handsome, aren't you?

  7. We all love to talk shit behind the anonymous shroud of the internet.

  8. Most of latinos, as myself, are a mix of native americans, black and white people, this being this in continental latinamerica. The caribean has a population of white and black mixed, because the whites killed all the natives. So i disagree with my race being latino, because we are a culture, and there are to many mixings in every country that i doubt there is a proper latino race.

    Funny enough, mixed people actually are healthier and have better genes than "purebreds", it allows for genetic diversity. Each race has minor adaptations exclusive to each one due to the different geographic and climatic conditions they developed in. A mixed person generally inherits both and is more resilient to diseases, infections and other health ailments.

    People may call them mongrels, or mutts… but they are genetically better equipped than pure-breds. So the jokes on them.

  11. Prometheus Aurelian
    I'd say the same thing, but I felt that retard wasn't worth the long response.

  12. Apply cold water to burned area.

  13. Mckenzi Norris

    Explain?

  14. Mckenzi Norris people are getting mad that there will be diversity of peoples in the world in like 100 years there were no longer be black or whites etc everyone will look diffrent or like these pics above

  15. Skyz Leo They don't want their race and heritage to disappear, that isn't racist, it's self-defense. They should be angry.

  16. Raopak Bolo there just gonna have to get over it

  17. having such a narrow POV is what holds us back as people anger at such things is so primitve

  18. alanrichards45 clearly isn't educated enough to know that we are all the same. He skipped his Biology classes. Even though I doubt education would do him any good as the brain of a racist is as small and insignificant as that of a tape worm!

  20. Elie Kawkabani He's a racist and thus extremely unintelligent. I think your sarcasm is lost on him! lol

  21. Chris Young

    Name calling, and baseless assumptions are the characteristics of young children and feeble minded adults.

  22. Many Latinos are considered Mongoloids, or at least those with more native american ancestry than Hispanic. Hispanic meaning the people who come from Hispania, which is the Iberian Peninsula who are mostly Caucasoid.

  23. Stephen Brown

    Everyone lets all get along Thanks – Digital Afro

  24. And they were all beautiful.

  25. Katy Jay

    hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Reaper Kira the Iberian Peninsula was occupied almost 80 years by muslims (the Umayyad) from 711-788, so no.. Spain wasn't totally caucasian when they conquered Hispania. Mongoloids applies to most of Asia, the Artics and as you said America.. but the natives. Nowadays we "latinos" are very mixed as aldhair duque said.

  28. Vika GCaballero: The Iberian Peninsula was conquered many times by the Carthaginians and Romans. The Carthaginians, are of Phoenician Ancestry, which are from Pre Canaan ancestry. Those people were Caucasian. Same with the Arabs, many traditional Arabs are Caucasian due to their Aramaic Ancestry I believe. Many Arabs are also Negroid due to their African Mixtures. Latinos are obviously mixed. But your race is only one of a kind, determined by Skull shape and other characteristics. And the Caucasus mountains are in Asia, or at least Eurasia, and they are definitely not mongoloid.
