DNA Tests Prove That Elizabeth Warren Is White

Source: Instapundit
         Elizabeth Warren has repeatedly claimed that she was Native American or a "woman of color", especially in connection to her employment including a promotion at Harvard. Trump rightly mocked her for her claims and so she finally took a DNA test which showed that she maybe had a Native American ancestor between 6 and 10 generations in the past. That is, she is, at most, 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American. More to the point, "the average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA (0.18%) as Elizabeth Warren (0.098%), who claims to be Cherokee."

         As David Harsanyi reports at The Federalist:

         We don’t fully know how important Warren’s claims were in her career. There is, however, much evidence that her self-driven minority claims in the 1990s were helpful. Warren, who once maintained her family had “high cheekbones like all of the Indians do,” was listed as a “minority faculty member” by The University of Pennsylvania. She had the school switch her designation from white to Native American. Warren self-identified as a “minority” in the legal directory, and Harvard Law School preposterously listed her as one of the “women of color” the school had hired. On job applications, Warren was very specific in claiming that she had Cherokee and Delaware Indian ancestry.

         When her supposed Native American heritage came under scrutiny during her first Senate bid, Warren presented a recipe she had published in her cousin’s cookbook as evidence of her background. It was signed “Elizabeth Warren — Cherokee.” Later we learned that even the recipe was taken verbatim from an article in The New York Times five years earlier.

        It’s easy to see what’s going on. Warren wants to dull Donald Trump’s “Fauxcahontas” jibes because she is about to run for president. Rather than admitting she has no genuine cause for being “proud of my Native American heritage” in her career, she’s doubled down on the assertion.

Yes, confirmation, as Vox Day has taught us, that SJWs always double down.


  1. Somebody needs to tell Elizabeth Warren that it's OK to be white.
