DNA Region Interpretation & Race

Posted: 1422829355000
Classification: Query
Hello all! Two questions....

1. When looking at my DNA results on Ancestry.com, it has those colored circles around the countries that we are from on the map...does the darker the circle around the country supposed to indicate a more definitive location? For example...I am part Iberian Peninsula and it has several circles branching out and becoming lighter and lighter green but it is darkest green around Spain. Is that supposed to tell me I am most likely Spanish than the other possible countries?

2. I ran my DNA through Gedmatch.com and it says I am part North African which was quite a shock. I looked at matched relative results and many of them are part North African. It also says I am a decent percentage of Spanish which was also a shock and about 10% Middle Eastern..... when it comes to race....am I Caucasian, Hispanic, African, Asian, etc? I'm so confused now!!!!

Thanks for all the info/help in advance! :)
