My phenotype is neither "African" nor "European," but is a typical mix and pretty ordinary for African Americans where the European ancestry is not recent, but 3-4 generations back.
And there was a posting somewhere on this forum about the guy from ABC news whose dna matched the Ashanti and he went to Ghana. He was told by the Ghanaian Minister of Tourism (I think that's right) that most of the people there have no idea that we are descended from Africa, having been taught little to nothing of slavery in the Americas. [Apparently they are in the process of changing that.]
That was pretty astounding to me. They figure we are indigenous black people from America, just like they are indigenous black people from Africa.
