I've Always Known I Was Mad White

A middle-school teacher in the Bronx had 11 of his students send in their DNA for testing.

While some kids were flabbergasted to learn just how "European" they really were, others proudly showed off the Certificates of Ancestry they received.

"You mad white," laughed Sheila Guernos, 12, looking at classmate Rossy Gomez's chart. "I'm mad white, too."

"I didn't know I had European family," said Guernos, who was 63% European, 25% sub-Saharan African, and 12% East Asian. "That's weird to me," she said, adding that her family was confused by the East Asian lineage because both parents are from Puerto Rico. [Link]
