You don’t need genetic testing to prove what you learned about your people. DNA tests are NOT complete and many times only tell you a very small portion of your family’s geographic origins.

I did ancestry tracing on my mom’s mom’s dad’s dad’s side and found out Abraham Lincoln is my 9th grand uncle 😂 but, my grandmother’s mom was Guamanian. And my maternal grandfather parents were black and possibly Native American. And the only thing I know about my dad’s side is that our cousin is Edwin Starr.

Because, in white society’s eyes if anyone is white and another race, they are seen as the other ethnicity. Which is why even if we’re mixed black, we just say we’re black.

It's technically not impossible, but it would be the same as being a descendant of a white slave owner. Since the Moors were mostly North African and Iberian converts to Islam and had black slaves.

God bless! Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and died on a cross for our sins so we can live again in Heaven where there is no pain or suffering! God is our Father and Creator and raised His Son Jesus from the dead! Confess and repent of your sins and God will freely forgive you! Trust in God and live for Jesus as He died for you! 💕.

Very often, the names immigrants took up in the US were literally translated versions of their original name. For example Bevilacqua (common Italian name) became Drinkwater. Maybe that way you can learn his real name.

On my European parent's side, I am predominantly Greek and English with some Scottish and a tiny percent of African. I know that I am actually a descendants of Genghis Khan, Rollo, William The Conqueror and Mary Boleyn (Sister of Anne Boleyn and Mistress of Henry VIII) 😊 I'm a very racially ambiguous person in appearance and I love that.

Damm the pain body that black American s carry with them from the past to the present is real! I feel sorry for you guys, it's like looking at a leaf on the ground with no tree. I come from New Zealand proud Maori warrior, we were colonised by French, English, Dutch, Spanish killing alot of my people in many wars but if you come here to my country today you learn my culture,you go to school you learn my culture our ways its passed on to the younger generation so its never lost. If you don't know your roots,heritage,connection to the land of were your tribes an ancestors walked well then your the leaf on the ground blowing around empty and aimlessly straight up!

I'd be so confused if living in USA... the land of if being 1/32th (and less) of one race/ethnicity make people pretend being 100% out of it, even if not remotely looking like it. Therefore, depending when needed, I could pretend being 100% Peruvian, 100% Spanish and 100% French or English... Oh!! I have a great great grandma who was somewhat Jew too (she spoke yiddish my grandma said), so let's say that I'm 100% Jew too! The sweet 500% me (probably much more that I don't know yet)... maybe even 1 000% me!! 🤣🤣🤣 I know that racial/ethnic identities are NOT only matter of skin colors, genealogically (and/or culturally) speaking... but honestly, it's still a big part of it in our daily life among our communities (racism within communities) and society (societal racism). Even if very sympathetic, I don't think that a fair-skin blond-hair blue-eyes white-face guy could pretend being victim of societal racism and ethnic profiling because being genealogically 1/64th Black... nor personally understanding Black people's struggles in such matter. Among Native-Americans (and Indigenous in south America), some people are firmly against these White people who claim being Natives because of a 1/32th ancestors... while their real motivations are to save taxes or legally being able to buy and exploit native lands. I'm very happy that people in this video are truly honest toward themselves.

Highly encourage you all ask your parents and grandparents as much as you can before it's too late. Before my grandma passed I asked about everything and now those stories will continue through me. You can find famous people's history on google, but not your own. Learn as much as you can. 🙏🏼

It's frustrating that many African Americans cannot directly trace their lineage back to the mother country. However, what's fascinating is that African Americans now have their own unique culture- which has heavily influenced the US in terms of art, gastronomy, entertainment, and much more. It's a culture that should be celebrated in its own right. 😊

Genealogists refer to this as “the brick wall,” an obstruction in African American lineage that dates to 1870 when the federal Census began recording African descendants - 250 years after they were first hauled in chains to what would become the United States. Before then, their lives existed on paper only as another person’s property. To penetrate the brick wall, black Americans frequently must rely on the names of their ancestors’ owners. “You can find them through [their owners’] tax records, estate records, slave schedules and wills,” said Mary Elliott, the “Slavery and Freedom” curator for the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
