When industrial production shifted overseas, the new, local, technological industries required fewer, better skilled workers. The consequence for those excluded was disastrous.

Projected changes in the racial and ethnic composition of a society also depend on the rules for classifying people. The Census Bureau assumes that every individual is either white or minority and resolves the complexities of multiple heritages by assigning people with any mixed background to the minority side of the white/nonwhite divide.

However, culture changes slowly, as does the visible landscape it produces and the ethnic meanings imbued by the group that shapes it.

The genetic history of Europe since the Upper Paleolithic is inseparable from that of wider Western ab years ago (50 ka) a basal West Eurasian lineage had emerged (alongside a separate East Asian lineage) out of the undifferentiated "non-African" lineage of 70 ka. Both basal East and West Eurasians acquired Neanderthal admixture in Europe and Asia.

Of these, only the year old skeleton showed the DNA change. All of the other skeletons had DNA consistent with lactose intolerance. These data suggest that lactose persistence wasn't yet common in Europe years ago. The persistence of lactase production is thought to have been an example of the coevolution of genes and culture.

Common in Europe and in many pastoralist groups in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, lactase persistence (LP) is thought to be of evolutionary significance in relation to cattle domestication and the increase of dairying.
