Ok, here is another scenario. Mr. Joseph was washed ashore from a shipwreck along the Louisiana Coast. His parents were at the time emigrating to Trinidad from India. The DNAPrint test for someone who is from the Indian Sub-Continent is likely to show Indo - European plus Native North American (see the www.ancestrybydna.com website under FAQ). Mr. Joseph's phenotype appears to be consistent with Indo - Pakistani heritage so, voila, quad erat demonstratum. Of course this scenario is false, as are the readings of zero percent African - American on the DNAPrint test.
Is there any way that we could draw Mr. Joseph into the discussion, since he has become the subject of much speculation?

And also there are many black races other than subsaharan African so in that case it wouldn't show and he could still be Black (partially).
