Recently, I was invited by Ancestry.com to spend a couple of hundred bucks to do a DNA test to find out my ancestry.
Now, I already knew that on my paternal side I could trace my ancestry back to Ethan Allen (he changed the spelling of the family name), but when I got the full results back this past week I found out some VERY interesting results.
I apparently have some relations to Mary, Queen of Scots, but I also have some Persian and … wait for it … African American and Native American blood in me.
Goodness Gracias, I am a fuckin’ nigger!
Notice how I’ve ignored the rest of my background?
Now, I already knew that my mother’s stock came from Iran — I’ve even mentioned it a time or two here. What DID come as a surprise is that I do have some native American stock in my background. As far as my African background? who knows, that could have come from a thousand years ago or more — but who really gives a fuck?
I do know that while a part of my family has been here since damn near the Mayflower days, part of my family has been here even longer. Another part of my family has what could have been a slave background and yet another a future enemy of the state.
Basically, according to Amnestry.com, I am a MUTT. But like MOST Americans, I am as much as a MUTT as everyone else here, and I make no apologies because of it.
If, for some reason any of my ethnicity or ancestry offends anyone here, then FUCK YOU.I dare the rest of you to sign up for the ancestry.com DNA program. You might be surprised with the results. In fact, I ENCOURAGE you to sign up for it.
Not only did I find out some very interesting heritage background information, I was also given some actual information about close relationships that I didn’t have prior knowledge of. Some VERY valuable information…
