Has anyone here taken a DNA test? I got my 23 and me results and I was somewhat surprised. I'm Kenyan Bantu (Kamba) so I expected a majority west African ancestry. 23 and me classifies Bantus as west African because that's our region of origin but over time many other groups have been absorbed by Bantus. Kambas border Somali and Maasai territory. On my maternal side, I have haploid group L3f1a. This links me to Chadic/Sahel region or East African pastrolist groups. Surprisingly I have tiny and very distant non African DNA but the dominant majority (98.3%) is African. I would have guessed 100% African: 75% west africa, 20% central africa 5% East Africa

There is totally no need for any indigenous Africans to do these DNA tests since you know what community you belong to from childhood.

They are usually done by black Americans.

Also Bantu never came from West Africa. We came from the Congo Basin which through located on the west of Kenya is just regarded as central Africa. Western Africa is the likes of Nigeria, Ghana, Mali etc.

If Bantus came from Congo, where did their ancestors before bantu migration come from? Ham is our ancestor, the niggas and He hailed in the Middle East.We should not forget that our history spans thousands of years and not half a millennium.

Bro, you're not descended from some nigga in the Bible.
So where do we come from bro? The Bible is a history book which I used as a reference to point out that at a distant past, the niggas once interacted with Arabs/whites through Ham's offsprings.

what do they look for? Because when you tells us that your DNA is 98.3% african, that is very misleading. Because over 99.9...% of human genome is similar.
