Question Genetic Testing and Race

If you took a genetic DNA test like 23andMe or the like and it said you were of a genetic make up of a defined "minority"; can you claim to be that minority now?

Let's say you thought you were one race and test said you 50% Native American or 30% Central African; can you claim that status for either or both?

At what point are you or aren't you a certain race?

The whole idea of preferential treatment based on ancestry is a crock to me, but it is what is for those who may want those advantages.

Bacon Bill looked up his family tree one time, and an ape pooped on his head.

Pretty sure you can claim you’re a can of tomatoes and no one can question it.

There is legality when claiming on federal forms to gain benefit. Certainly advantages in the workplace as well.
