Christine Michael Carter, decided to go through an ancestry report as part of Black History Month.
According to the data from 23andMe, Carter is 67.2% Sub-Saharan African, 31.5 % European (white), .6% East Asian/ Native American and and .6% unassigned.
“Huh? Of all the emotions which materialized from the results, the two strongest were disorient and shame,” Carter wrote of her realization that she was almost one third white.
It is well known that black people usually have white blood as well. According to a genetic study, the “African American” genome is usually 73.2 % African, 24% European and .8 percent Native America.
