Three of the show’s hosts took tests to uncover the truth about their ancestral identities and were stunned when they learned who and where they descend from.
The biggest shocker? The news that Meghan, who believed she was 100% American, has a Senegalese ancestor.
An ancestor, many viewers took to the net to point out may have been an enslaved man or woman.
One viewer, stunned by Meghan’s suggestion that she picked up her African ancestry at the dawn of humanity, took to YouTube to share…
Er, sorry to break it to Meghan, ‘Senegalese ancestors’ does not come from human migration from Africa (that is common to every human), it comes from slavery. The Sene-Gambian region (made up of the West African countries of Senegal and Gambia) were some lf the early contributors to US slave trade. When you overcome the shock, you may want to watch the television serial ‘Roots’ again – Kunta Kinte and what not – for an example of how slaves emerged from that region and the horrors they experienced in America- including how slaveowner rape of black women is responsible for most of the token contribution of West African blood to most white American DNA (science obviously has no respect for the ‘one drop’ rule). You may also google ‘Ayuba Suleiman Diallo’. So General George McCain “who fought with John Washington”, as you say, also probably had a little bit of ravaging to do in the slave cabin. It’s worth venturing out to know every bit of whom we truly are.
