If you are reading this website, you have likely been told over the course of your life that “race doesn’t exist.” Race is a “social construct” with no biological significance. The following is what 777,000 tubes of saliva collected by Ancestry.com has revealed about White America:

“What do you do with 770,000 tubes of saliva collected from AncestryDNA customers?

Ancestry scientists have an unusual answer: Create a ground-breaking map of America’s history-based diversity using the genetic data from the analysis of the samples.

This unique map shows this country’s great migrations, the echoes of our pioneer ancestors in our genes today. …

To create this unique snapshot of our past and present, our researchers first created a network of over 500 million genetic connections between the 770,000 customers in the study.

Through network analysis, they were able to take that mind-boggling number of connections and identify dozens of unique genetic communities across the U.S.

The scientists then used a subset of Ancestry’s massive records database, using 20 million family history records to build a map of America’s great migrations.

While the maps here show only North America, scientists also used the data to map the ties between communities in North America, Europe, and other parts of the world. …”

If you are interested in seeing my results, they can be found here:

Of course you could also just look at me and tell I am English. I know my direct ancestor arrived in the United States through the port of Wilmington, NC.

If the map of regional genetic clusters among White Americans looks familiar to you, it is probably because it resembles similar maps from cultural geographers:

Hmm.

We can confirm from saliva samples that southern Illinois and Indiana are the South’s middle finger in the Midwest. If it is possible to discern these genetic and cultural patterns among White Southerners, which is what we would expect in light of migration patterns (the Scots-Irish in Appalachia, Cajuns in Louisiana, English in the Lowland South), what do you think that says about race?
