Fascinating study involving Bishop Desmond Tutu's DNA showing amazing diversity among Africans.

One part of the article just highlights the wisdom and tact of Bishop Tutu

Tutu was included to represent a Bantu ancestry, in contrast to Bushmen. Bantu people have a tradition of farming, while Bushmen are longtime hunter-gatherers who represent the oldest known lineage of modern humans.

But when researchers looked at Tutu's genome, they found surprising evidence that his mother's ancestry includes at least one Bushman woman. It's not clear how many generations back that woman lived.

Tutu told The Associated Press that discovering he is related to "these wise people" made him feel "very privileged and blessed."
