The Seven Daughters of Eve: The Science That Reveals Our Genetic Ancestry now turns his sights on the United States of America, one of the most genetically variegated countries in the world.
- *It's not easy being of blended race: "[Tiger Woods] once got in trouble with the black community in America for saying he sometimes felt more Thai than black. He's also cited his Thai [Theravada] Buddhist upbringing as something that keeps him calm and focused on the course..." (CNN).

- everyday Americans with compelling ancestral stories. His findings suggest:
- Among white Americans, evidence of African DNA is most common in the South [where rape of slaves and servants was a common practice, which continues today as human sex trafficking].
- Of Americans whose ancestors came as slaves, virtually all have some European DNA. [Most slaves in the USA were indigenous people taken into slavery here, not brought over from anywhere but the Americas.]
- Racial intermixing appears least common among descendants of early New England colonists. [Before long they joined the melting pot, too.]
- There is clear evidence of Jewish genes among descendants of southwestern Spanish Catholics. [Columbus was said to be a converso, a Jew induced to convert to Catholicism.]
- European genes appeared among Native Americans as early as 10,000 years ago. [There were many "giants" (ogres, Sasquatches, Nephilim), some with red hair and six fingers and toes, and other hominin species here at first contact as Chinese and Afghan Buddhists, Hindus, Egyptians, Africans, Vikings, and many other seafarers tried to explore and sometimes exploit new lands.]
