Woman takes mitochondrial DNA test to find out which African tribe she descends from, and is horrified to find out that her mitochondrial DNA is of “non-African lineage”

In the first five minutes of this video, this woman goes on and on about how happy and excited she is because she just got back the results of her mitochondrial DNA test. She took the test because she wanted to find out which African tribe or tribes she is descended from. A person (male or female) inherits Mitochondrial DNA solely from their mother.

After five minutes of joyous anticipation, she finally opens the envelope and looks at the results.

She is absolutely devastated to find out that her mitochondrial DNA is of “non-African lineage.”
