    Had a DNA test done - Mali.

    Btw, Louis Gates says that 85% of African-Americans are of mixed ancestry. While I don't know what percent Malian I am, it is the ONLY percentage that matters (I say this because with black people replying.... I got injun blood! :cheerleader: and no proof required.... I KNOW what's coming up. **sigh**).

    Thanks for sharing, all things are now in full context:handsinair:

    Mali
    Timbuktu, the legendary city on the banks of the Niger River, rose up on the gold and ivory trade, and it was once the richest city in Africa. Today, an especially attractive aspect of Mali is its cultural wealth, which is perhaps most visible in the masterful artwork of its native people, the Dogon.

    Ghanaian, Igbo (Nigeria), Chadic (Cameroon), and various Bantu ancestry (Gabon, Congo, Mozambique). I'm sure there's Senegambian in there somewhere but the others I actually have found DNA cousins for this ancestry or it was pre-known.

    What DNA test did you have done? I've wanted to get one done, but there's so many out there

    No...And I gave up my research...it's frivolous to me.
    It wouldn't really explain anything that I feel would be beneficial to me.
    Because the whole human race is crap.
    If I was God...I'd flood the Earth again and start all over again.
