What The "Average American" Will Look Like In 2050

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.

Tommy, you forgot to add, "inability to discern sarcasm" to your list. Well actually, it's not sarcasm. Tommy was spot on, and if it takes "ebbalushun" 36 years or 36 million years, what he described is where we are headed. All you must do to see the truth of his comment is walk to your nearest shopping mall. You can already see early examples amongst us. I for one think it's devolution. And no, none of those pictures make me feel any better that the white race has committed genocide against themselves. Progress in action. NOT.

This is so inaccurate!!! None of these people are super, super fat??? Look at all the fat fucks we have now, surely they will blow up even more in the future. Evolution will create larger, wider feet to support the sloppy mess. Of course Americans heads will be much smaller because it's obvious Americans don't use their brains to think so no use wasting space. Their ears will be uneven size because most people have a cell phone glued to one ear, constantly jabbering mindless idiocies to some other moronic fatso. Their jaws will be larger and more defined to gobble down more GMO, processed, poisonous, slop that they think is food. And there shouldn't be any old people on here either because between being obscenely obese, dumb as a stump, and being poisoned by every damn thing from the vaccines they are given at birth to the high fructose, GMO, nutrient deficient formula they are fed as a baby, the chemtrails in the sky, the fluoride in the water and all the other shit they are attacked with daily the average life will probably be about 35 yrs. This country has been turned into a sick joke and we let it happen. Shameful.

You're the one starting with a big assumption: that people from Africa, Asia, etc don't have green eyes or carry the genes for green eyes. In fact there are significant populations in Asia and among Native Americans with green eyes and even blue. (Records from early European visitors to America record light-eyed natives, so these genes were here before Europeans.) You also continue to confuse dominant genes with dominating visibility, when they aren't the same thing.

No assumptions, just a hypothetical situation to explain a concept. I have green eyes (not hazel eyes like those in the picture-actual green), and I know how rare they are. Also, the post is about Americans, not the world. If you exclude hypothetical situations, we would be talking about blue-eyed vs. brown-eyed genes and white vs. racial minorities. My apologies.
