Nature Vs. Nurture:
2 Brothers With Disparate Identities
In partnership with ROOTS on History, my half-brother and I recently took a DNA test to understand why we're so different. Was it nature - the genetics of our different moms - or nurture - the way they raised us, our friend groups, etc? While we were surprised by some of the results - much of my genetic history is tied to Sweden and Norway...what?! - we were most surprised by how little nature has swayed us into the disparate men we are today. Watch the video below for an in-depth look at our ROOTS experience, and make sure to tune into ROOTS the miniseries on May 30th at
9P EST on HISTORY.
