Can Black People in the Americas Trace Their African Roots Through DNA?
Using DNA to trace African ancestry is very popular among Caribbean and African-Americans wishing to trace their roots to Africa. Unfortunately, what these don't know is this scientific tool has severe limitations. The truth is, DNA testing cannot tell precisely which people in Africa those ancestors on the slave ships came from. Sadly, very few know this truth. Taking advantage of society's ignorance, unscrupulous people have set themselves up as DNA merchants and dupe those using this scientific tool to search for their African ancestry. Take a look at the following video. It may look quiet innocuous. However, see if you can spot the fraud DNA merchants perpetuate by the lies told in the video and in the process dupe the unsuspecting victims of their money.
