Pocohontas Takes A DNA Test

In the short video at the Twitter image below, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren says:

My mom and dad were very much in love with each other and they wanted to get married and my father’s parents said absolutely not. You can’t marry her because she’s part Cherokee and she’s part Delaware.

Wow, those in-laws had an amazing ability to sniff out Indian genes.

Consider: Warren’s DNA test say Warren’s mother could have been no more than 1/512th part Indian, and at best 1/16th.

As for Warren herself, Mark Dice draws the picture:

Yet:

Back in 1997, Harvard Law School was touting Elizabeth Warren as their first “woman of color” law professor. A year earlier, the law school had told the Harvard Crimson, in response to claims that the faculty wasn’t diverse enough, that “although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, [Mike] Chmura [spokesperson for the Law School] said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.” A year later, a Harvard Crimson editorial declared, “Harvard Law School currently has only one tenured minority woman, Gottlieb Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren, who is Native American.”

This was consistent throughout Warren’s career. As Benny Johnson noted, “Warren self-identified as a ‘Native American’ in the Association of American Law Schools Directory of law professors in every edition printed between 1986 -1995.”

A 2005 report from the University of Pennsylvania’s Minority Equity Committee referred to Warren as a minority award winner.

Back in 2012, Warren initially claimed she didn’t know the schools were referring to her that way, which is extremely unlikely. This would mean that Warren wasn’t following the debate about minority representation at the law school back in the 1990s and that she didn’t realize the law school was citing her as an example of minority representation.

But then a few weeks later she said she “provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard.” As we now know, Warren is anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1024 Native American, and does not meet the criteria of “Native American” under anyone’s definition but her own.

She certainly doesn’t meet the Cherokee Tribe’s criteria.

It’s not really OK to be white, you see:

The fake news media are now pronouncing that Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian because she claimed she produced a genetic test showing she was about 1%, or perhaps as little as 0.01%, American Indian. (The actual data behind the alleged test have not been released, being about as opaque as Christine Blasey Ford’s polygraph results.)

The liberal media herald this as a vindication of Warren. “Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with ‘strong evidence’ of Native American ancestry,” reports Fortune magazine. “Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with ‘strong evidence’ of Native American ancestry,” claims the Clinton News Network.

Strong evidence? A great, great, great grandmother, or possibly someone even more distant than that? It’s ridiculous and also alarming, as the mainstream media parrot the Democratic talking points, even characterizing an obvious lie as the truth.

The point that everyone overlooks is, why, even if Warren is (finally) being truthful about her heritage, would someone who is 99% white and 1% (or less) American Indian want to be called American Indian? Are there American Indians who are 1% white who want to be called white? I think not.

That’s because in America, being a white person is considered bad, and minorities are considered virtuous.
