Geeez, since you ARE an African-American it comes as absolutely NO surprise that you would have Neanderthal admixture.I'm AA and I have 1.5% Neanderthal dna.
You know, 50,000 years is an awfully LOoong time, and an awful lot can change in that 'interlude'.
While I DO believe that the initial combining of Neanderthal and Sapien DNA spelled out a definite survival advantage for several reasons and, yes, I do also believe that it gave such offspring a definite intellectual advantage, but that is NO reason to believe that the NON-Neanderthal population, at least ~some~ of it, could not have been steadily improving and even caught up, intellectually, within the given massive time span.
Also, only an ídiot obediently accepts being told that they are competitively inept and without any realistic hope of advancement.
That having been said, a really profound ídiot simply tries to put down others whom they merely perceive as their oppressors, instead of praising themselves ALONG with praising all 'others'.
A DNA test is hardly the way to establish potential.
