First of all that doesn't answer the athlete question but anyways I found it interesting. I also think this is something to consider. "You can be 31/32 black, but if that 32nd ancestor is white you could show up as white, too," she says. "That can be very confusing." Having one ancestor who is a different race probabally doesn't change much of your genetic makeup but maybe I'm wrong. Finally this "Each person's DNA is unique, but some DNA patterns remain relatively unchanged within families as well as within ethnic and geographical groups. Genetic genealogy tracks those types of DNA." It even states in the article that DNA patterns differ between ethnicities and that they remain relatively unchanged in those ethnicities. Why is it farfetched to believe that those different ethnicities might have different physical/mental strengths? Not saying it makes them smarter or better at somethig, but I believe that your ethnicity gives you different natural gifts to mold. You just came very close to putting me in my place, but the fact that only 30% trace it to Europeans and that it is more than likely only a handful of European anscestors in that 30% statistic, while thousands of years of African lineage. I'm not saying Africans, Europeans, Asians, whomever are better overall, just that they MIGHT possibly have different mental and physical strengths. Can everyone at least agree with that statement? Good find btw.
