Being 100% White or Black doesn't make one "pure", because even White or Black races are made up of several lineages. It is true that the first human originated in East Africa. However, many more lineages arose ever since those times.

That cannot be said to be true. It is certainly not proven true.

All credible evidence indicates that Homo Sapiens Sapiens originated in East Africa and that all populations of AMH(anatomically modern humans) diverged from a single population with origins in East Africa. There are a few nationalistic whack jobs that have attempted to spin alternative theories but those theories don't hold up.

Hi my family says we are full filipinos but which truly i believe that we are somewhat mixed, according to some of my cousins they said we have a lot of family secrets. My friends say I look mixed as Hawaiian, Japanese, etc. I have always been so interested in the Hawaiian culture and I love the food. I am interested in getting the DNA test, anytime I ask my parents they become defensive about it or change the subject

There is only one race - the human race.

By that account, the human race is a "pure" race....

No there isn't and it's not news.
