I can’t lie, I was one of the BIGGEST criticizers of the current “trace your genetic roots through DNA” ordeal. I proudly donned my hotep hating hat. “ Why would I pay the white man to tell me something that you should be entitled to for free!?” *in my Malcolm X voice*.
I also didn’t believe in the science behind it. So You can tell me what part of Africa I’m from, based on my saliva? Nigga please…
To be honest, , curiosity inspired me the most. February was a heavy month.

So I got the test:
The kit cost between $60-$89. I know its not cheap, but I’ve spent way more than $89 to spark my curiosity in more debaucherous situations
The test requires you to spit in a tube. (I know, some trifling shit right?) and ship it to their headquarters. You set up an online account to activate your results. A month later, your results come in.
