While this quiz is technically based off "ancestry," keep in mind that most African-Americans came to America as slaves and have little to no knowledge of their ancestry. This is why I felt the need to point out immigrant groups; even if some of the people on this survey are native born, they likely have parents or grandparents that immigrated recently (post-1960s).

If you're surprised by Cape Verde (as I was!), check this out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Verdean_Americans
