This is an overview of my African DNA results. African Americans are actually very diverse ethnically, however our society just sees us as all the same. Of course we are all African diaspora. Some African Americans actually have a lot of east African and that is evident when you look at the DNA. ANCESTRY is European based with more European DNA to compare to, that does not apply to me however, the site is not great for people in the African diaspora as they do not have a lot of reference data for Africans. DNA is a complicated thing, you can have a father who is Ethiopian and lets say, Egyptian but since you only get 50% of his DNA, you would only receive half of his DNA and it is random…so you may not receive ANY of his EGYPTIAN DNA and only his Ethiopian. These DNA tests may not catch all of your ancestors or even the complete ethnic profile of what your parents might be. (I don’t even know if ancestry is getting your paternal DNA) But it gives you an idea. Of course being an American Negro I already knew the throat of Africa was going to show up. In fact for most African Americans, ancestry spits out the same results…BENIN/TOGO, NIGERIA, SEIRRA LEONE, SENEGAL, CONGO…trace region of MALI. But there is a lot more intricacy than these big nations that we all seem to come from. African tribes have always been migratory, the FULANI for instance in the modern day, say for a few centuries have lived in the NIGERIA area, however they are originally from NORTHEAST Africa, EGYPT/KEMET region and will tell you that they are the descendants of the ANCIENT EGYPTIANS. Ancestry only takes your DNA from under 500 years ago. And we all know that DNA gets less and less the further back the ancestor existed. A NATIVE AMERICAN ancestor from the 1600s would not show up much. But then you have to take into account the way DNA is passed down. So it is an intricate and quite fascinating journey to discover your DNA. Being adopted at birth I knew nothing about my biological situation, last year I found my maternal side which is African American, the paternal is inconclusive. For Black folk, this can be infuriating when looking at your DNA because many find that their ancestors were raped by White devils or they find out general information of WEST AFRICA that pretty much leaves them where they were before, Celebrating the continent of Africa and having no allegiance to any particular tribe. Our Native American ancestry also gives us a unique history, as we have the rights to this AMERICAN land as well as the west African land. We are a displaced people yet we find so much cause to war with one another. I wish we would unite as a people, REALLY unite in the spirit of our ancestors.
I have studied the Fulani tribe and I really connect with them, especially the way they celebrate male beauty. The males dress up in make up and flashy colorful attire to compete for the admiration of the women in a special ceremony. (Of course my gay ass doesn’t want female admiration lol) I am extremely proud to come from these people. Being six feet tall with west African features, a lot of people assume I am from an African nation until I open my mouth.
The people of the African continent are beautiful, diverse and exist as the original people of the world. We should all be PROUD of who and what we come from. We are the most DOMINANT genes on earth and we created everyone else that exists around the world. They came from us, and that is why they hate us, just like Satan hates his creator in the mythological European Bible.
