    To answer the question of the mitochondrial DNA, the only thing used from the sperm is the DNA and some other small things and everything else is kicked out by the egg. I'm no biologist but am taking AP Bio and this is what i've learned so I could be wrong.

    I think it's important to be clear that "African" isn't really an identity. Even less than "European" is an identity. There's much much less connecting a Fulani and a Twa, for example, than even a Portuguese and a Russian. If your ancestors came from the Yoruba, for example, you can't travel to freaking Mozambique, or wherever, and claim you are discovering your roots. That's even more ridiculous than an Irish-American traveling to Bulgaria or something.

    Live in Uganda 🇺🇬. Haven't been to Kenya though. These animals are lovely and mesmerizing each time you see them. And you see them a lot being African and East African. These kind of things make us Africans out here smile. 😘. Love you Ladylike.

    I think this is one of my fav videos I have watched so far! It was educational and emotional! I learned a great deal and would love to have my DNA done. I literally cried at the part with the orphaned elephants; I have always loved them since I was a little girl and it hurts my hurt to know they had such a harsh start and to see what is done to them as a species but it also made me glad to see there are some who are taking care of them and trying to preserve them! Great job ladies!

    The oldest human (woman) was actually found in Ethiopia. No hate but I hope they mentioned it not generalizing it just as an East African origin. 🇪🇹
