Re: The Danger In Taking A DNA Test

I don't think anyone should feel bad about such a result. As biology 101's genetics section taught me, pigment in human skin is the dominant trait. Dominant in appearance, as 'default.' Since pigment is the default position of color, 'racial' admixture leads to the likelihood of some pigment rather than none in the offspring. To me, logically, all colors are, therefore, possible from crystal black, including albinism, or the sudden, 'mutant' loss of pigment. (see fictional X-men, where mutants are 'super' in their differences). Due to geopolitics, albinism can no longer be described as a 'mutation' but rather a 'lucky break' from the colonial-induced poverty of rich pigment. Of course, the lack of pigment in sunny, equatorial latitudes means lack of shielding from ultraviolet, which is not so beneficial to the average colonial X-men which might help to explain the marked presence of such in the extreme north and south of Africa. Anyway, if one believes genetic theory, all the peoples of earth have indeed 'morphed' from crystal black folk of the Rift Valley, INCLUDING the modestly pigmented, black-haired Native Americans.
