When sundiata's results came in telling him he was Niger-Congo a red flag came out that he's likely Yoruba:
Your European ancestry, if you are from Louisiana, is probably French/German as opposed to Northern Afro-Americans that would likely be Anglo/Irish/German.
The average European admixture among African-Americans in Lousinana-New Orleans is on average 21%. 79% African. Native American admixture hardly detected.
I see a common trend in which pathetic samples and mislabeling in regard to Africans, leads to the appearance of decreased African ancestry... and increased European and/or Asian (Native American???) ancestry. if Imhoteps results mirros other African-Americans who tested with 23andMe his African ancestry would liekly double if tested under fair and accurate conditions. ~80%.
And in regard to you, please post your results. What company are you using? 23andMe and other similar genetic companies are terriable when it comes to East Africans. If your like the Eritrean I mentioned, don't be surprised if your results read: 1% African and 99% European. Instead of the accurate ~65% African and ~35% non-African it should read, in regard to you being Lower Egyptian.
I will see. I don't know which agency I'll use but I'll provide screen shots of my results. I finally stashed away enough cash to do this, being a college student money's always tight.
Also in regards to 23 and me being bad to East Africans I don't know if that's what I'll use.
