Tom Jones to get DNA-tested for black ancestry.
Quote:At 75 years old, Tom Jones wants to do something quite unusual. The singer wants to get a DNA test to find out if he has any black ancestry.

The "What's New Pussycat" singer, who is from South Wales, said that he's always wondered if he is of mixed race, part because of his curly hair and tan skin.

"A lot of people still think I'm black," he told The Times of New Zealand magazine. "When I first came to America, people who had heard me sing on the radio would be surprised that I was white when they saw me. Because of my hair, a lot of black people still tell me that I'm just passing as white."

In addition, he said that some information about his birth has puzzled him: After his mother gave birth to Jones, she developed "big dark patches" on her skin.

Jones said, "When I was born, my mother came out in big dark patches all over her body. They [the doctors and midwives] asked if she had any black blood and she said she didn't know. I'm going to get my DNA tested. I want to find out."

It will be interesting to see his results. Of course, the results will contain some explosive reveal that will speak to the 'we are all one' nonsense regardless of whether any black ancestry is discovered or not.

"... the swarthy faces of the Silures, the curly quality, in general, of their hair, and the position of Spain opposite their shores, attest to the passage of Iberians in old days and the occupation by them of these districts; ..." (Tacitus Annales Xi.ii, translated by M. Hutton)

Quote:The Silures were a powerful and warlike tribe or tribal confederation of ancient Britain, occupying what is now south east Wales and perhaps some adjoining areas.

Hmm or maybe 'Snoop Old Dog' or 'Mocha Ice' or maybe 'Peanut Eminem'.

Uncle Tom Jones.





Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
