      Isn’t that a stretch?

      The DNA results were displayed during the credits, as usual.

        Why isn’t Irish and Jewish tagged at the bottom? He is more Jewish and Irish than Elizabeth Warren is indigenous to America?

          Why not. Ramos is more Spanish than anything, though. Remind me of Bryant Gumbel that despite being tested 65% European is somehow more African than French lol. That’s sick.

        No tag Berber because the guanches were a Berber ethnic group. They spoke an amazing language and are genetically very similar to Moroccans, Algerians, and Tunisians.

        • andrew says:

          That is silly. Should we start then to tag any Cuban and Puerto Rican person as “Berber” because a lot of their ancestry is from Canary Islands?

          • Dar says:

            Well it is clear he has genuine proven Guanche ancestry as shown here and I’m sure many canarians do but if they don’t say guanche then don’t add it. Simple as that.
