An Opinion: The Browning of America

NEW ORLEANS (8/13/16) - It is estimated that about 12 % of European Americans in Louisiana have at least 1% African ancestry in their DNA. In the Southern States of this country, by most standards, this makes them African American. Viewed from another perspective, 328,186 people in Louisiana, who self-identified as white on the last census, are actually Black. On a larger scale, 6 million people who consider themselves white in the United States of America, carry African DNA.
