National Geographic has just published an article about how, with 9 million Americans self-identifying as multi-racial, race in America is "no longer so black and white."
The magazine features a beautiful pictorial by acclaimed photographer Martin Schoeller. His close-up portraits of Americans of a variety of different backgrounds are stunning.
It has been argued that multi-racial faces are more attractive, overall, because they blend DNA from different populations, leading to more genetic diversity and "hybrid vigor." Click through Schoeller's collection to see what you think.
