momondo – The DNA Journey feat. Carlos

Published by Darron Toy on


Hi Hi So Carlos, tell me a little bit about you and your heritage My family background, I would say is entirely Cuban What sort of percentage do you think? 100% Oh 100%? OK, so 100% Cuban There’s a little bit of rivalry to your nearest neighbours, do you think? There is, I think I think Cubans don’t like to be confused with Dominicans and the other way, like Dominicans with Cubans I don’t know why, but there is a rivalry there My grandmother has 12 sisters and brothers and I have seven uncles So the whole family, all born in Cuba,
all generations as back as far as you can remember? Yeah. I know there is something with my
great-grandmother, sorry. My great-grandmother Maybe Dominican I hope not A DNA test? I would love to do that And what that does is, then we can step that back up to two thousand years ago Two thousand years And tell you where your ancestors come from What would you not want to find, do you think? Dominicans … or Argentinians … or French Carlos It’s time, my friend Hello again Hello Carlos Hello I’m a little bit nervous, I have to say Why? I don’t know Whatever’s in there, you’ll still be Carlos, right? Yeah yeah yeah, sure, it’s not, well yeah … Read it out to us, Carlos Whoa … Whoa! No … No … No … Wow … That is crazy Spain/Portugal, 22%. See, Spain, yeah? Native American, 17%! Oh my God … South Eastern Africa, 16%.
Africa in my heart Italy/Greece, 12% Nigeria, 8% Great … Great Britain? Come on! 8% Senegal, 3% Ivory Coast/Ghana, 3% Benin/Togo? Where’s that? Africa Africa, yeah, more Africa, bring it on. 2% Mali, 2% No, this is a joke! Eastern Europe? Seriously? Middle East, 2% Cameroon/Congo, 1% Scandinavia! Oh my God … 1% Scandinavia Melanesia, 1%. What is Melanesia? This maps out the entire world, because that’s where you’re from This spot here, Melanesia, the very last thing you’ve got that’s what you would show up as if you were
an indigenous Australian, if you were an Aboriginal I have Australian! This is really unbelievable Well I mean you’re one of the most ethnically diverse people I have ever seen If aliens landed on the planet, and we had
to send them a representative of the world it would be you, because you’re from everywhere! I’m a real man of the world I am Enjoy your trip Safe travels, man

Buyuk Iskender · August 5, 2019 at 10:02 am

WOW! Incredibly diverse!

Liza J. · August 6, 2019 at 10:42 am

I think he may be my cousin … why do we have like almost the same DNA history. We probably did the same DNA test.

Liza J. · August 6, 2019 at 10:42 am

honorine oussou · August 6, 2019 at 9:42 pm

So youre a melting pot this is why you look so handsome and I m glad you have African blood God bless

sal capone · August 8, 2019 at 1:13 am

Den Bond · August 11, 2019 at 1:37 am

Leftist propaganda.

Katia Haalstrom · August 12, 2019 at 5:25 am

Such beautiful & amazing results Carlos & what a gorgeous young man you are!! That smile……………….. 🙂

Katia Haalstrom · August 12, 2019 at 5:28 am

The negative comment regarding "French" ancestry was not necessary. There is absolutely nothing wrong with French people/DNA. In fact, it's be something to be truly proud of. Carlos's other family members, may very well carry some French DNA & i wouldn't dismiss it, until all family members have been tested. We don't inherit all of our parents DNA, so it's very possible.

onlyget1 · August 12, 2019 at 5:38 pm

"0" Cuban, that's insane!!!!

RoRo G · August 13, 2019 at 1:30 am

And that's why he's gorgeous he's mixed with everything.

Virtual Humanoid · August 13, 2019 at 5:58 am

This dude Carlos looks like the American R&B singer Lloyd, same dark complexion, same features and hair.

wilson nelson · August 13, 2019 at 3:26 pm

Waw….you should really thank you great grandparents cuz they fought alote for you being alive today.

plmoknty · August 15, 2019 at 9:57 pm

Diversity is a blessing but at the same time it's also a curse.

Tommy Malecon Jr · August 16, 2019 at 4:19 am

how about fucking donald trump taking that dna test. . ?

Tommy Malecon Jr · August 16, 2019 at 4:23 am

i think trump is 10% duck because his shitting all over the place. 15 %.sunkist orange because of his color. 25 % parrot because of his hair and 50 % reptilian because he does'nt like human beings. hahaha

godisgood117 · August 17, 2019 at 2:58 pm

We don't want you anyways! 🇩🇴

Nathalie Neo · August 17, 2019 at 5:59 pm

Melanesia is Fiji and papua new guinea, solomon islands…not only aboriginal australia..ppfft

Yaya True · August 18, 2019 at 10:46 am

How in the hell can you be dark and have dark family members and not know you’re African. Cubans feel they are whiter than Dominicans. All of them bevies are crazy.

Claudia NL · August 19, 2019 at 1:34 pm

He is quite handsome!

Helen Robertson · August 19, 2019 at 6:29 pm

Well atleast he embraces his AFRICAN heritage…alot of spanish people dont like it….👌

AWAWA BO · August 20, 2019 at 6:16 am

The reason why Dominican and Cuban's don't want to be associated with Dominican is because Haiti is in the middle. You'll have French for sure because of the blacks that were taken there as slaves from Haiti.

Candida Corona · August 21, 2019 at 4:19 am

I'm originally from the Dominican Republic, and this is the first time in 44 years of life that I hear a Cuban say they have rivalries with Dominicans. On the contrary my dear, who was Màximo Gomez? The ties that unify Cuba with the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico are an indelible mark of patriotism and love for freedom. Please, set the record straight.

tr558 g5 · August 21, 2019 at 6:28 pm

How hypocrite lol

MeMyself & I · August 22, 2019 at 12:16 pm

Gyn Reimer · August 25, 2019 at 1:54 am

My eyes watered so much watching his reaction! Man of the world. 😊 indeed.

Elvira Santiago · August 27, 2019 at 11:55 pm

He doesn't what to be African😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Empress 24 · August 28, 2019 at 11:19 am

This guy it's from all over. Diversity? is him. He looks as a European person, painted in brown. He is ~36% Central, south East, West African, and more European: 43%
He is has 17% native american, which has something to do with the Melanesia 1% DNA he also seems to have.
he looks more dark in color, than what his DNA tells… mmm in Senegal are people dark as the black color, and he has Senegal area DNA.
He can either have a "white" blonde kid, or a kid looking African or native american. Amazibf

milkbunnies · August 28, 2019 at 12:20 pm

Park Haruka · August 28, 2019 at 3:46 pm

osgonzalez2591 · August 28, 2019 at 5:59 pm

He should be happy he’s even considered Dominican.

Maximo Gomez was one of the fathers of the independence movement. A Dominican.

3 as1 · August 31, 2019 at 4:39 am

This is a commercial and should be treated as such.

Akinkunmi Cook · August 31, 2019 at 5:57 am

Incredible!!!!!

Syaffaldi Baychasi · September 1, 2019 at 10:43 pm

I heard that malayan ia a mixed race. I wonder where my anchestors come from.

liz Swedlund · September 2, 2019 at 11:31 pm

As a white guy I think The mixed people are the most interesting to look at their dna.

Corri ander · September 4, 2019 at 11:37 pm

Very interesting! ☺️

tomás · September 6, 2019 at 11:45 am

lazy egg · September 6, 2019 at 11:17 pm

THAT'S WHY CULTURE APPROPRIATION ITS BULLSHIT

Ivón Rom · September 7, 2019 at 4:18 am

Julie Elizabeth · September 13, 2019 at 8:02 am

Amazing!

Radrook · September 14, 2019 at 12:07 am

Wonder why he doesn't want Argentinians, Dominicans and French.

Pearl Sandcs · September 15, 2019 at 5:53 pm

I'm from Mexico and am very diverse as well. I have Swiss, Italian, Greek, German, Afghanistan, Israel, Ghana, Native American, Inca (Native).

JOKANI1977 · September 16, 2019 at 4:30 am

Rochelle Pratt · September 19, 2019 at 3:24 am

You can see he is mixed with about a little of the whole human race he is beautiful

Tori Collins · September 25, 2019 at 6:53 am

He has within his body a map of the colonization, kidnapping, enslavement, & rape of West Africa…it’s both shocking & painful. Though, he seems a great soul.

Queen Queen · September 25, 2019 at 7:46 am

You all are just cousins

ragul ov · September 25, 2019 at 3:51 pm

That's truly the world. What a beautiful guy.

Kartook Tech · October 1, 2019 at 5:53 am

From the first min, I thought his face alike south Indian. I was waiting so patiently until they said Melanesia/Australian Aboriginal. I was right. Group of Indian people migrated to Australia thousands of years ago. Please check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indigenous_Australians

Michael Mathen K · October 4, 2019 at 9:45 am

I knew he was some kind of native American coz he has all the traits.

Ayomide Adebayo · October 4, 2019 at 12:12 pm

This guy is literally from everywhere

Lee P. · October 5, 2019 at 12:37 am

Wow…best DNA result reveal ever

katy ndiaye · October 6, 2019 at 6:48 pm

Senegal 3%🇸🇳

Kimberley Bowman · October 7, 2019 at 4:24 am

people He didn't denounce Africa, he was more surprise of the amount of European and there are many culture that has dark skin and do not identify as being black.

kyra evans · October 10, 2019 at 10:40 pm

Ethnicity-the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.
"the interrelationship between gender, ethnicity, and class"
Race-is a grouping of humans based on shared physical or social qualities into categories generally viewed as distinct by society
Color of Skin-can be everything from very pale to very dark, and many shades in between. That's because of something called melanin, which is made in the epidermis. Some people call it pigment
National origin– refers to the country a person was born in or where their ancestors lived. National origin discrimination is when an individual is mistreated because of their country of origin, culture, ancestry, linguistic characteristics, accent, or physical appearance.

Ethnic Origin is an attempt to classify people, not according to their current nationality, but according to commonalities in their social background. For example, somebody living in a monocultural environment, speaking English and clearly a member of an English-speaking cultural milieu, may be descended from immigrants speaking some other language and still participate in some other aspects of their culture

Agabus Cooke · October 15, 2019 at 12:48 am

No one from the Caribbean is 100%.

Doorkat · October 15, 2019 at 10:30 am

My brother "senegalese for 3%" 😢😢😢

Ariho Innocent · October 15, 2019 at 2:10 pm

you realy look to be east african

Frank 13 · October 15, 2019 at 7:16 pm

Red or yellow American where come from ?

Piontro Pechetrini · October 16, 2019 at 3:33 am

You just need to see his face that He is not Pure Black. No big lips, no pepper bell nose, light skin, He is Mixed for sure.

Inan Umut · October 16, 2019 at 10:46 pm

That kurdish girl is a fully racist

Living in the islands · October 17, 2019 at 1:37 am

What??! Melanesia?..wow…

Jabro Jacob · October 17, 2019 at 10:56 pm

Why is he crying, or pretending to?

ami urnova · October 18, 2019 at 6:49 pm

I also want to know my DNA roots

• Mani • Pōmarë • · October 19, 2019 at 5:17 am

Some of these comments are the most ignorant and bigoted comments I’ve ever read 🤦🏽‍♀️No where in this video did he ever say that he didn’t have African in him.. Y’all were purposely misunderstanding him just so you can bash and belittle him in the comments for nothing 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️

Al Mamun · October 19, 2019 at 9:10 am

I want to do this. How will I do ?

BabayBunny · October 19, 2019 at 7:17 pm

Apparently I have to leave this here…He says he is Cuban it doesn't mean he doesn't know history or that he is a mixture or European African and Native America. Latinos especially those of the Caribbean know this.

Blue Green · October 23, 2019 at 6:33 am

This was a learning video

carlos fernando santos · October 30, 2019 at 10:08 am

blood of the portuguese conquistadores yehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

T Byas · October 31, 2019 at 8:27 pm

Cuba was raped so many times by some many different countries. Natives were sent to and from that island also as slaves.

cem barhana · October 31, 2019 at 8:58 pm

So how would I get my dna checked. I do not care about the results, but much rather curious and wanting to get suprised. Oh and I need to confirm the 10% viking berserker in me. Might be 8 or 12, I am sure I have it. I am 38 and still can't get to valhalla.(w or v?).

Ευαγγελία Κουλούρη · November 2, 2019 at 7:09 am

Miami Knight · November 3, 2019 at 4:30 am

95% of Hispanics don't realize they are black

Kaleah Collins · November 3, 2019 at 9:02 am

Because cubans even the dark 1z feel there more spanish decended then dominicans because of the french haitian mix

Mitchii · November 3, 2019 at 11:26 am

Melanesians Are Not Always Australian

DAVEY CORTEZ · November 5, 2019 at 8:52 am

I love his personality.

Yokasti Rojas · November 6, 2019 at 2:58 am

I went to watch this video because I thought there was no racism but that Cuban believes himself more than us Dominicans I am very happy and proud to be Dominican

People Power · November 6, 2019 at 7:18 am

He is one corny dude

Marta Vega · November 7, 2019 at 6:16 pm

How reliable are the percentages below 3%?

Jenean H · November 9, 2019 at 10:07 am

He looks European ,and islander but I haven't listened to his dNA before making this comment

Kono Dutch · November 10, 2019 at 7:06 pm
