    I'm sure someone mentioned this but "how black you are" makes no logical sense. Being Black is an entirely American invention therefore it came about in a country which due to oppression of many people and chattel slavery there was a lot of mixing of "races" (accept the "race" concept to be true at this moment). There are numerous cultures existing on the African continent let alone the ones that existed in the past but were wiped away, so saying Sub-Saharan African is basically saying "somewhere over there" while waving towards a globe of earth. Afro-Americans have nothing in common with existing Africans which is something I realized after spending time with people actually born and raised in various African countries for generations. Even if say, I accepted that sub-Saharan African was a valid "region" that still does not mention the various empires of that region with unique traditions, appearances, and cultures that traded internationally for hundreds of years (or longer) before their destruction- so even a 800 year old ancestor of "sub-Saharan Africa" could be mixed with various "races" due to international trading. So, Buzzfeed's intro "how black you are" is just a "purity test", is there going to be "how white you are" as another member of the series? I'm sure certain groups like the K_ _ would appreciate a "how white you are" video.

    black people are so racist they act like having any white ancestors is the worst thing to happen to them. this video just shows how fucked up black peoples brains really are. like trying to argue why they could have that percentage of white has to do only with forced mixing. so black peolpe are so racist they only mix with other colors when they are forced?

    It's misleading. Just because people in Europe have your genes doesn't mean you're white. It just means parts of your DNA is also in Europe. These DNA test just show the results of a database of current people, not ancient people. Migration is a big part of the story.

    I am not condoning slavery on any race, I do wish they would have mentioned that of the 12.5 million people that were taken from Africa to be slaves (and were captured by Africans by the way not Europeans, then sold to Europeans) 600,000 were sold in North America.  The primary place they were taken was the Caribbean and South America to work in the sugar fields.  Very cool the people in this video are looking for their roots; I'm kind of curious what parts of Europe came up on their reports.

    People consistently mix up nationality and genetic heritage. What exactly does it mean to be sixty percent Swedish? Swedish is a nationality. There are people with Asian and European ancestry in Sweden, there are also many of mixed genetics. When you say someone has Iberian dna, what exactly does this mean? The Iberian peninsula was a place where many races mixed-Asiatics, Africans and Caucasians. These tests are not as accurate as they purport but I suppose they make people feel good.

    man that 12 million is being misinterpreted drastically, yes it is 12 million to the AMERICAS not THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The Spanish owned most of those slaves, the USA only have about 500k slaves, that's why black people only make up 13% of America, because back then there were not nearly as many Americans in USA as there are today

  • SIG442

    Funny to see only the black population sticking to the slave trade, yet ignoring that a lot of Europeans and Asians also had to endure the same thing throughout the ages. Europeans were mostly enslaved by the Romans, later also in the new world which is not America. Irish slaves were the most common in that, yet because they are white they seem to have no right to even call them self's victims of the same horrible acts. During WW2 Russia used it's own people on the front lines, they either have to move forward or got shot by their own officers. Also a form of slavery, yet no one says anything about that either. Nazi Germany used a lot of slaves to make new weapons, tanks, ships, etc. Yet these slaves seem to be forgotten by the black community.

    For that matter, In Asia you still see mostly kids and women being enslaved so that they can make your clothes, toys and other things. Yet that slavery is ignored completely. I do not deny black slaves were a thing, all I am trying to say is that the black community were not the only ones that had to endure slavery. Also even today there are slaves, most of which are Asian and NOT the black community.

    Why is it always blamed on the white man when the first black slaves were enslaved by other blacks and sold to the whites. Others whites had already been enslaved all over Europe long before blacks were sold but themselves to everyone else. They sold their own for guns to enslave more of their own. History, facts. Get educated.

    I want to my DNA test, because black families have rumors who your ancestors are. But, DNA is the truth. My family has been telling us forever we have native american and african roots.... But my cousin just had his done and its pointing to mongolia... Huhhh I really want to know what makes me the person who I am. I feel, if more people did their DNA, it would be less racism... as we are all mixed with something.

  • Toni Schumacher
    Toni Schumacher 19 days ago

    Why is it that important where people originated from. Like everybody is mixed race anyway. From all that scientists today know, the modern human came from africa. So we all kind of are from africa...mother africa. I understand that many people who experienced racist oppression strongly identify with their race as a tool of empowerment. As a white person, I never really experienced racism as a victim but I think humanity should overcome this race thing. Race is more a social construct than a biological fact. If I'm honest I feel more connected to a south asian punkrock kid than to my cousin, which I share little to no interests with.

    I sent in my DNA to ancestry and am currently waiting for the results. I know I'm a mutt but aside from the obvious hispanic, I'm hoping to find some African! We have members in our family that have some of the traditional traits seen in African communities! My father talks briefly about some of these traits in the video I just posted, which is a part one in my journey to discovery. Idk now, but I'll know soon! Part two, the results should be up in a few weeks! How likely do you think it is that I'll find traces of African DNA?
