Sliding toward panmictia?   posted by Razib @ 7/31/2006 11:14:00 PM

Not quite, but interesting article in the Minnesota Star Tribue. Skip all the sentiment and hand-wringing and just jump to the statistics. Also, this is eye-opening: "By the year 2000, no large U.S. city anywhere other than on the intensely multiracial Pacific Coast had a higher share of multiracial children than Minneapolis." Of course, the Upper Midwest and the Pacific Northwest are whiter than average regions of the country, reinforcing Steve Sailer's point that overly large minority communities retard assimilation.
