Some people are actively
looking for 'minority' ancestry to establish whatever it is that they feel
it necessary to establish, and would get offended if they _didn't_ find it.
I would be interested in taking the test for two simple reasons -- I am type
B blood (<10% Europe, and in certain parts of Sweden (I'm half Swedish) <5%,
and I have lupus -- which occurs more often in women of color.
Facts are facts, and the fact is my B type blood probably came from some
non-European ancestor. so far all the haplogroups and mitogroups in my tree are
R1b and H5a. I am doing some autosomal analysis with DNA-FP, and last night
on one marker, I have two copies of the same allele, and the allele is most
common in Asians, which is also true for B type (second highest populations
for B are African).
I am curious about whether there is any way to figure out which line these
came from. Nothing more. I am puzzled by your consistent determination to
characterize this as "feeling necessary to establish" or that someone such as
myself would "get offended if they didn't find it." Now will you please
analyze my motivation for wanting to get my husband to wake up 15 early? ::grin::
