Wow, white people now want to claim Africa. Who knew all it took was theorizing that AAs are indigenous people. Prophecy playing out right before these eyes of mine. These dry bones...

Black Americans are the biggest hypocrites. If a Dominican or Puerto Rican claims anything but black they are called race traitors or self haters by AA's. Yet it is perfectly ok for them (AA'S) to claim Native Americans. LMAO.

The theory that Olmecs were from elsewhere has already been debunked and is not taken serious by any real academics. The fact so many blacks believe this **** is quite disturbing.

I never said we all have "black" in us, I said we all came from Africa a very, very, very, very long time ago!

My Paternal Haplogroup is E1b1b1a1b1a, meaning my Y chromosome in my body left Africa 30,000 years ago.

This is the absolute TRUTH and nothing but the truth. I do have an appearance similar to Wesley Snipes, and my DNA results says I'm 75%African but I claim my Portuguese ancestry and usually go with Portuguese-American. I can imagine how many Black people will say I'm self-hating.

It's about learning about your history, so it's obvious my history is Portuguese.Also they guy you know that has a Portuguese great-great grandfather, did you guys consider him Portuguese? And what did people consider him? So if someone is mixed with Portuguese like me and looks 100% African, and another person is mixed with Portuguese and looks mixed-race, what will you consider them? Would you consider them based on what they look like? I look 100% black would you consider me mixed-race and part Portuguese like someone who looks mixed-race?
I'll answer this way hopefully you'll finally get it. I just got a new DNA match he looks 100% Black and lives in the UK but is estimated as 20% European and is estimated as a 3rd-5th cousin he has Nigerian name so most likely has a Nigerian father his maternal grandmother is Guinea Bissau but moved to Portugal his maternal grandfather is unknown to him but supposedly is part Cape Verdean and part European Portuguese. He is related to me we share a common ancestor do I consider him Portuguese no I don't he is of Partial Portuguese ancestry. He's mixed but doesn't look mixed he looked like an average black guy with dark brown pigmentation.

So do you consider your cousin Black, mixed or Portuguese? Also if he was 80% or 50% Portuguese would you consider him Portuguese?

He's mixed but looks full Black. I see a Black guy when I look at his picture but he is related to me no doubt about it.

Why does it matter what he looks like? So if he looked full Portuguese or mixed-race would you still consider him? And if he was 50% or 100% Portuguese by blood would you consider him Portuguese?
