67 complete strangers from all around the world got together to discover what their respective heritages are.

Most of them were confident that they knew where their families are from, and they took pride in that fact. Each had to undergo a DNA test to find out where their ancestors were from. The results were, to say the least, surprising to many of them, proving that beyond borders, we all are really more similar than we know.

Before the DNA results were in the interviewers ask the crowd, “Are there any that you don’t feel you’d get on with well or you won’t like particularly?”

To which many had responded yes and elaborated on which groups they were not fond of. One Englishman said he was certain he wouldn’t get on with Germans. Another man said he wasn’t fond of the French. Hilariously, the Englishman was in fact 5% German. He wasn’t the only one who discovered they were descended from those very same groups they said they didn’t like.

In fact, every single person in the video had descended from at least 5 different other nationalities that they had not realized. One woman realized the full impact of this self-discovery, stating, “I’m going to go a bit far right now, but this [test] should be compulsory. There would be no such thing as extremism in the world, if people knew their heritage like that. Like, who would be stupid enough to think of such a thing as, like, a pure race?” Peering into our genetic makeup, it is clear that at our very core, we are all one big global family. For one woman in that crowd, that statement rang truer than anything else when she learned of this shocking revelation. Watch the video below to find out.
