By the year 2050, most of America will look like Houston, where 51 percent of those under the age of 21 are Latino, and 19 percent are African-American.
It’s all part of the reason why the city is the most diverse in the nation.
Seven years ago, Houston surpassed New York City for the honor. The Bayou City, a mix of Latinos, whites, blacks, Vietnamese and other immigrants, is home to a wide-range of ethnicities, according to the Houston Chronicle, even if many neighborhoods continue to be segregated.
Against the backdrop of an increasingly agitated anti-immigrant political climate — with a wall that may be built separating Texas and Mexico and sanctuary cities in the cross-hairs of state and federal government power — Houston stands poised to not only be affected but also to play an increasingly large role in it all.
