    There was a video on dailymail (appeared as an ad). I cant link it here because i cant embed DM video unlike youtube and it doesnt have a page on its own.

    The content is about a white supremacist shocked to find out that he has 14% african genetics in him.

    What if you did a DNA test and find out that you have some undesirable DNA in you? will you feel depress? will you suicide?

    Anyone who thinks their DNA is 100% of any race is a fool.
    Anyone who would let their life be affected by this even more so.

    Well I'm not obsessed with 'purity' so I wouldn't be too bothered if that happened. I would, however, be very interested to know the results. It's about £100 to get tested, so maybe something for my next birthday...

    As far as I know the vast majority of my ancestry is from Northern Europe. I've never had any reason to suspect otherwise.

    I dont think it's possible for anyone to have 'pure' DNA. Not that I'm bothered either way, it's completely and utterly irrelevant.

    'Undesirable' DNA? Unless we are talking about potentially harmful genetic mutations, I have no particular desires about my DNA makeup. I would be quite curious to know though

    I think you have to appear on "Who do you think you are?" on BBC1, they're the only people with the techmology

    Lol at that Trisha show. It's liberal bull****.

    People who are saying you can't be pure, are talking ****. Again, liberal bull****.

    Nothing has proven we all come from the same person.

    right i have a confession to make.

    I was told that vietnamese and cantonese have the same ethnic root and are more close together compare to northern chinese ancestry and the northern tribes.

    I had the shock of my life because i am cantonese and i always considered myself a proud descent of Han ancestry.
