Sending off your DNA to be tested for your ancestry has become quite popular, but you may have second thoughts about it after hearing what they’ve been doing to white people.

Websites like 23andMe and have made a fortune off of getting people to send them DNA samples so they can determine their roots, but it appears as if the services aren’t what they seem to be. In fact, according to an enraging report from Squawker, the companies have been deliberately misleading people as to what’s in their genes in order to mess with those they think are “racist.”

No, seriously.

An insider from one of the companies did an interview with Cracked, and they revealed that people within their company will intentionally manipulate the results to lead people to believe they’re something they’re not.

When Inside Edition had a set of triplets send their spit in to and 23andMe, they got wildly different results from both services. Neither gave each triplet the same ancestry results. “Tests can be a crapshoot. For DNA tests, they use genetic markers, which are little variations in the DNA one or several groups may have, but others do not. The more markers there are, the more accurate the test will be.”

More from Squawker:

Shocked yet? Yeah, I didn’t think so. A lot of my friends have taken these types of DNA Tests, and most of them come back saying, “I don’t think this is entirely accurate…”

Remember when white supremacist Craig Cobb found out that he was 14% black? Well as it turns out, there’s a possibility that those numbers could have been fudged with.

Morgan and his colleagues were caught between a rock and a really-want-to-mess-with-racists place. It would’ve been fun to throw a “10 percent West African” in there, but then they might have a pissed-off, dangerous person at their office, waving a gun. “Since we couldn’t do anything to the results (and we wanted to), what we did was add ‘< 1 percent’ to each African category of ethnicity. That way we weren’t lying, and they would both be wondering how much under a percentage point was. We always try to round to the nearest number because we sometimes hear about percentage points, but for them, we leave it open to whether it’s a one or a zero.”

It’s a compromise that’s elegant in its passive-aggressive simplicity. And it got a result. “The near-N-bomber wrote to us asking what that meant, and we wrote back that it meant it was under 1 percent. And we were not saying zero. Unless they got another test, that was going to bother them. Maybe they weren’t 100 percent Caucasian. I mean, they were, according to the results, but this way it leaves it open, and they’ll always be wondering.”

Isn’t that lovely? Worse yet, these same companies have a partnership with Google-owned biotech company Calico, and their DNA results are shared in the name of science and helpful research.

So on top of SJWs using these ancestry tests top screw with alleged racists, the companies are also giving away the information to the one business you don’t want to have it.

If you ever needed a reason to not use them, this should do it for you.
