Since it is a hot topic these days and some already have mentioned they have...
Have you taken a DNA test? Which company did you use? Do you want to share your results?
Hello, IslandBites, Ihave not done a DNA test. Did your doctor required it? Ithough so when you are afflicted with a serioud disease, right?
No I haven't. I wonder if it says something that I have no interest in doing so?
We had one done on my dad. I can't remember which one I purchased. It was funny. It appeared, historically, we shunned the Irish. It showed ancestors from the Scandinavia area, France, Wales, and some Native American.
Nothing exciting and nothing we didn't already know or suspect. I'm certain one done now would be more precise but I don't really care. As politically incorrect as the statement may be, there is one race. The human race. That is the American ideal. I firmly believe in it and any other information on where I may come from is superfluous.
I’ve done it through Ancestry, 23andme, Family Tree DNA, and GEDmatch. Not because I’m particularly interested in my ethnic background but because I don’t know anything about my biological father and his family and was hoping to connect with some matches. Anyway.... nothing at all surprising, I am 99% of European descent with a majority of that being Irish/Scottish. I have a pretty good chunk of Scandinavian too.
I like the health reports through 23andme. The traits are kind of fun but highly inaccurate. GEDmatch is a lot more science-y and you can pick which samples to compare your results to, they also run a report on if your parents are related or not.
I did mine with 23andme. As a Caribbean (Puerto Rican) I somewhat knew what my results would be. Nonetheless, I was surprised that I have a higher % of native than african %.
And yes, I had a good laugh with the health report. But mine is accurate enough. LOL
Not politically incorrect. Race doesn't exists, it's a social construct, not genetic.
DNA test has nothing to do with that.
Maybe you should share that bit of wisdom with senator Warren.
Based on ^that, I believe it's more helpful to you.
Don't know as I could agree with that. "Species", under that reasoning, is no more than a social construct as well. Both are definitions, not scientific facts, and neither one is absolute although "species" is much better defined than "race".
hI, All, now I get a clear indication of the DNA challenge. I am an African Nigeria. I don't think that traces of English, Dutch, Asia, and Ayan, for instance, can be found in me. My root in Africa. DNA tests here is not feasible at the moment. Thank you all.
Yes, DNA has been taken.
I'm supposed to have English blue blood, and some black in there.
Hope that doesn't mean I have a bit of reptilians and forefathers had black slaves. I mostly chart my own desired destiny anyways. Lol.
Hello, Castlepolamo, you are welcomed, and I can't help to laugh!
Caring for each other is more important than blood realationships. I forgive my forefathers, for it is what I do in the future, is what counts. What ever black is in me, it sure helps me to sing and dance.

Why Can't Obama act "politically incorrect"?We've seen "the Donald's" lowering of the politically incorrect bar down to the gutter. For this Donald has been praised by many. Yet if Obama acts even slightly politically incorrectly he is viciously verbally abused by the same...
