The DNA Journey
Biased strangers take a DNA test – the results show why we shouldn’t judge others on their looks
Humanity has in many ways come quite far, but it’s also clear that it still has a long way to go.
Prejudice is one such area where we have much room for improvement. It continues to create problems among people, and at worst, our bigotry leads to wars and conflicts where countless innocent lives are lost.
Still, these massive problems often begin with the first impressions we make about others based on their skin color, physical appearance, and perceived nationality.
In an effort to contrast the prejudices we all have with the facts about who we actually are, travel company Momondo gathered 67 people from various ethnicities and offered them a DNA test.
All of the test subjects had one thing in common: they were proud of their nationality, ethnicity, and heritage.
But they were also full of bias against people from other races, who in their eyes are totally different from themselves.
Sound a little bit familiar?
The whole thing starts with a question: “Would you dare to question who you really are?”
Then, Momondo gave each of the participants a DNA test. And two weeks later, the test subjects returned to see the results.
The results left the participants in tears… and shattered everything they ever thought about themselves.
This video is an important reminder for all of us to accept others regardless of their nationality or skin color. Because we actually have a lot more in common than we think!
It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think. We asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought.
I really hope that this thought-provoking video helps people look beyond appearances and take a step closer toward each other.
We must never forget to love our fellow human beings for who they are, regardless of their appearance, origin, or nationality.
Please share this important video, so that more people can learn this valuable lesson for themselves!
