Scientists recently released the largest ever genetic study of the American public, casting new light on misleading current methods of racial classification. Data from 160,000 participants show that people who identify as African-American possess genes that were 73% African, but 24% European, or “white.” Meanwhile, self-described “Latinos” had DNA that was only 18% Native American, but 65% European. In other words, the concept of a separate “Latino” or “Hispanic” race is a fiction: Latinos are a smaller percentage “Amer-Indian” by genetic inheritance
than African-Americans are “white” by their DNA.
No wonder the census bureau shows that half of Hispanics classify themselves as “white” by race. This identification will intensify, with up to 30% of all Latino marriages now involving unions with “white Anglos.” The effort to label people as a separate race based on linguistic ancestry is a dishonest form of political manipulation to encourage division, dependency and a sense of victimhood.
