It is projected that by the year 2050 the people who make up our American melting pot will reach an ultimate level of mixed ethnic heritage, resulting in the minority truly becoming anyone who is of one racial background.
National Geographic decided to explore the look of the "average American" with a little help from photographer Martin Schoeller and a bit of digital manipulation, creating a series of portraits that show what these future Americans will look like.
The projected faces are familiar rather than far fetched, and may help alleviate the fear and doubts some people still have about interracial relationships.
