Dang, I had a nicely written reply that got zapped by the server outage. Here it goes again:
My point had nothing to do with Africa itself, only to the OPs choice of words. Discussion heritage based on country/continent of origin seems a bit vague. For those that believe in creation we are all descendents of the same bloodline, right? Why aren't we all labeled with their country of origin?
When asked what I "am", the typical response is Irish/German. Recent ancestry.com research though has tracked my family back to about the year 200AD. That is with ancestors in Ireland, England, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, and the last 350 years in the US. So what is my heritage? I want to go deeper than 200AD just to see... perhaps I am Jewish. Maybe trackable to biblical characters? Now that would be interesting.
So, hopefully you can see that my post was NOT intended to be inflammatory although it appears some may have interpreted it as such, sorry.
