DNA Testing Companies Like 23andme Admit Adding Fake African Ancestry To White Profiles In Order To “Screw With Racists”

Via R


Who were your ancestors? What is your ethnic background composed of? Sites like Ancestry.com and 23andme have always been some go to sources in answering all of your toughest questions. But how accurate are they? In a recent interview with Cracked, one of the major ancestry testing companies, (which specific company is unknown) spilled the beans on what really happens when you purchase an ancestry kit. While I can’t say I’m surprised, you may be shocked to learn that these ancestry sites aren’t always as accurate as they claim to be. Beyond this, they’ve also admitted to tampering with the result to “screw with racists”.

  1. Another item about the tests - they don't really determine ancestry. They show where in the world other people with similar DNA currently reside. Based on population densities, they make an educated guess at your ancestry.

  3. Like the old "computer signature analysis" at the county fair. These tests should be labeled, "for entertainment purposes only".
    And obviously, cracked is a humour mag so the whole story is believable, but should not be taken seriously.

  4. I don't suppose the morons can see the irony of 'screwing with racists' simply because someone is white. Er, wouldn't that make them the racists? AS I said, leftist loons don't do irony - though they're excellent at hypocrisy and downright stupidity.
