    America's Tomorrow: An Interactive Map of Our Nation's Future

    PolicyLink time-lapse map charts growth of people of color in the U.S. from 1990 through 2040; Viewed over 100,000 times across 135 countries in less than 24 hours

    NEW YORK, May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PolicyLink has released "The Map of America's Tomorrow," a new interactive time-lapse map showing – for the first time – the growth of people of color in America from 1990 through 2040. Census projections have long shown that people of color will soon be our nation's majority. And yet there's been no visualization of what this future will actually look like – until now.

    In less than 24 hours, the map has received over 100,000 views (and counting) and has been viewed in 135 countries. Harlem Children Zone's Geoff Canada used it as the centerpiece for a presentation he gave on "How to End Poverty" at the Google Zeitgeist Festival in London this week. The Daily Beast's Andrew Sullivan has also joined in, describing the video yesterday as "The Browning of America."

    "This map makes crystal clear just how dramatically the face of America is changing – and how quickly," said Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder & CEO of PolicyLink. "Already, nearly half of all young people are of color, and by 2042, people of color will become our nation's majority. Clearly, this snapshot of our future has struck a chord, leaving no doubt that we must invest in and start building the foundation of tomorrow's America today. Let's start now."

    This map is the first installment of "America's Tomorrow: Equity in a Changing Nation" – a new multimedia series exploring America's changing demographics and the leaders who are making a difference.

    To view the map and follow the series, visit www.PolicyLink.org/AmericasTomorrow. The map also includes an embeddable HTML link for quick and easy posting.

    "People of color" is a nondescript term that is basically meaningless unless you believe white people are the only problem. The term incorporates Black, Asian, hispanic, Indian, etc., and any mix thereof; where in that continuum do BLACK people fit such that the topic becomes relevant to our survival by 2042? This doesn't even cover the fact that people of color are already and have always been in the world majority, but we can see in what state the world currently exists, can we not? Can we see what dynamic "people of color" are allowing to persist at the moment? With the many races and ethnic groups that comprise the United States, we can probably surmise that it is a microcosm of the world at large; as such, what would people of color becoming the majority in the United States by 2042 ultimately going to mean? Crap...it's 2011 already and we can't seem to even evolve the average black mind past 'good' and 'bad' hair!

    This seems like fear mongering. I'm constantly hearing about the "extinction of Whites". What about the extinction of Africans or Native Americans or Aborigines?

    Also, what do they mean by "people of color"? Many Hispanics would be classified as White.
