The L3 Mystery

For all interested in the Haplogroup L3 mystery. My wife was tested thru National geographic as L3 as well. Many are starting to ask the question if L3 is found primarily among Ethiopians how do African Americans belong to this group? This question cannot be entirely answered thru science instead we must look to history. In Ehtiopian history there was a religious civil war waged in about 1624 against the Falasha Ethiopian tribe. The Portuguese backed orthodox Christian Ethiopian government sought to drive out the Ethiopian Jews of the time. The Falasha were defeated and forced to convert to christianity and were sold to the Portuguese as slaves. By virtue of the Portuguese being major players in the Atlantic slave trade it can by deterimined that many of those Ethiopians may have ended up in North America.
