'National Geographic 125th Anniversary' Shows America's Future

Award-winning portrait photographer Martin Schoeller captured the faces of young Americans for the National Geographic 125th Anniversary edition. Some of the images were then digitally altered to showcase and predict how the "average American" would look like in the year 2050.

The outcome is truly beautiful; every person photographed has bold features that can each be attributed to various racial identities. Essentially, the photographer's prediction is that over the coming years, interracial relationships will continue to blossom. The offspring of those relationships will eventually result in the American race resembling an amalgamation of different ethnic backgrounds.

Clearly, America is living up to its "melting pot" idea.
