In an effort to reduce the prejudices people have towards other countries that are not their own, travel company Momondo gathered 67 people from various ethnicities and offered them a free DNA test.
All of the subjects were bias against people from other backgrounds, because they saw them as entirely different from themselves. One subject tested even said, “In my opinion I am strong, and I am more important than a lot of people.”
It became pretty clear that most people believed they knew where they were from, and they thought they only had one background. “I’m 100 percent Bengali,” a man said.
Some also suggested that their personal experiences led them to think less of certain nationalities. One British man said he wasn’t a fan of people from Germany, and a Kurdish woman said she hated Turkish people, before quickly clarifying that she meant she hated the government. Then, Momondo gave each of the participants a DNA test, and two weeks later they returned to see the results.
As most may have guessed, when the participants read their results, they were in tears. The results left the ones who believed they only had one heritage and background especially shattered.
