Great Great Great Grendma Eve from which homo sapiens is descended lived in Africa about 200,000 years ago. Since the Mitochondrial DNA is found in the umbilical cord and is the DNA passed from mother to daughter we find that ALL Humanity is African whatevers. The DNA was harvested rom all ethnic groups on the planet and document the travels of early homp sapiens from Africa to Peru, Europe, China, etc.

Have they yet determined anything more about a Sa'ami genetic connection with the Berbers of northern Africa?
The findings are consistent with the notion that populations in close geographic proximity that speak linguistically similar languages are more likely to exchange genes.
Or that people are less likely to exchange genes with people who don't live in their proximity (think of the equipment of the barnacle) and who aren't of their ethnic/linguistic group.
