(Newser) – By the year 2060, 36% of America's kids under the age of 18 will be what the Census Bureau deems "single-race non-Hispanic white," down from 52% today. The shrinking percentage is thanks to what WalletHub calls the country's "rapid ethnic and racial diversification" over the past 40 years. The site took a look at more than 500 of the nation's biggest cities across three key metrics (language, ethnicity and race, and where its residents were born) to find the most culturally diverse cities in America. The findings:
