Warren still has to answer for her ethnic identity theft

Warren still has to answer for her ethnic identity theft

"I think everyone, of course, has the right to investigate these types of questions about themselves". Both of my opponents have made the same attack.

I guess protecting a liberal, white, Democrat female - even if she makes a mockery of the concepts of diversity and affirmative action - is worth it.

The six-page genetic data report, which was released on Sunday, is dated October 10. His findings, released in a campaign video from Warren's 2018 Senate campaign that concluded Warren's ancestry is mostly European but said "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor", six to 10 generations back.

Why did Elizabeth Warren feel compelled to push the narrative that she was part Native American? As the camera scrolls over faded photos, Ms. Warren recounts that her paternal grandparents disapproved of her mother's rumoured Native American ancestry.

"She basically has no Native American blood in her system".

She also contributed a crab omelette recipe to a "Pow Wow Chow" Indian cookbook - which Boston radio host Howard Carr claimed was all but ripped from a French chef in a fancy New York City restaurant.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made a fundamental error in chasing the coattails of DNA provenance as a response to the jibes of US President Donald J. Trump. Warren's true challenge will be Gov. Cuomo, Sen.

Canada Legalizes Cannabis, Prepares to Collect Taxes
The most populous province is working on its regulations and doesn't expect pot shops to open until next spring. Across the border, 9 USA states and Washington DC have legalised recreational cannabis to those aged over 21.

President Donald Trump isn't letting a little thing like DNA get in the way of his never-ending "Pocahontas" taunts against Democratic Sen. "I'm not a citizen, never have claimed to be, and I wish I had been more mindful of that 30 years ago".

If Warren really were the "true leader" she claims to be, Mullin said she would have come out and apologized "to the American people ... saying she has misspoken". I say that with respect, but you would. For the white-grievance set, it's a powerful piece of rhetoric, created to mock Warren and her fellows who think they know better. He had managed to, as he has so often before, lower the tone of conversation and disfigure it. Warren had, in other words, done what most Democrats did before and after the election on 2016: grudgingly accept that the man wasn't barking mad or reactionary in insisting on a course of action reserved for game show gimmicks and the lunatic fringe.

"Cherokee" is neither a racial nor a genetic term: It's a nation, which decides citizenship based on its own customs and laws. Republicans also mocked Warren after she released the results of the DNA test. She should listen to Native American leaders.

Warren's Republican challenger on November 6, Geoff Diehl, has largely avoided mentioning the controversy surrounding Warren's claims of Native American ancestry, though he has referenced it in some recent TV interviews, including during a Tuesday appearance on Fox News. What is the impact other than to alienate Native Americans who do not accept her claim? If someone is compelled to explore their Native American family ties, they need to understand what DNA tests can tell them, be clear about what's driving their quest, and consider becoming an ally of and advocate for Native American tribes and communities. But even if it only helped her network, or get an interview, it was a cheat.

Those who want to investigate potential ties to a Native American tribe should consult genealogical records, including tribal census rolls, says Tsosie.

Racialized people are more likely to take it all in stride: Ms. Siddiqi has a black friend whose DNA test showed fewer than 20 per cent African genes, and is now jokingly on the hunt for somebody "less black than me". "I won't sit quietly for [Trump's] racism, so I took a test". But that hasn't stopped some from confusing her Indian heritage with Native Americans - including, she joked, the president. "This was just another part of it".

At Harvard Law, she was touted as its first female faculty member of color. Diehl said it's up to voters to decide what they think of Warren's DNA analysis.
