So, the result of the DNA test finally came back. As I suspected, I am not a pure Chinese. The surprise is that my paternal Haplogroup they testing I have the haplogroup C, which is commonly found among Oroqens, Mongolians, and the Souix Indians of north America. This haplogroup is spread by the rise Mongol empire. I am probably a direct descendant of the great Khan himself.
My maternal haplogroup is B4a, which is found among nearly 100% of Native Americans in South West America and Northern Mexico.
As much as I dislike American culture, I knew there is a reason why I have the primal instinctive love I have for the land. Looking at the my two haplogroup halves, even though I am East Asian, the two haplogroup’s most common overlap is actually in the American Great Plains. Just something interesting I thought to share.

I recently ordered a genetics test online. I have been very curious about my own ancestry, as I read the reddit entry in my previous post. I noticed that colorism is prevelant among the Chinese(my own background) community as well. In China, dark skinned people are persecuted. I inherited my dark skin from my birth mother, and obviously having dark skin is NOT a common characteristic among the Chinese. I don’t look Chinese, and many Chinese people are surprised I can speak mandarin(might actually be that lighter skinned Asian women tend to systematically reject me). Chinese people often ask me “are you from Tibet?” or “Are you from Mongolia?” Let the test answer those questions
