Elizabeth Warren removes the cloud of controversy and doubt re Native American Ancestry: She passed the DNA test

Elizabeth Warren releases results of DNA test

 Boston October 15, 2018

According to family lore, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother was at least partially Native American

There seems to be no remaining issues or questions re who and what she is...

She won't be mired in controversy over her heritage....

Unless there are some skeletons hidden in the closets of her personal narrative, she will be able to run for the presidency free of Republican attempts to smear her record and reputation....

She is a walking bulls eye.

Yes, she is a lightning rod....

She may be just what the country needs to reignite the flame of equality and justice in a free and open society....

What this should be used for is to open up the TRUE HERSTORY of Native Americans, those, which is almost everyone, who find out what they White Man actually found here on contact will be quite surprised.

"she will be able to run for the presidency free of Republican attempts to smear her record and reputation...."

Well, I suspect Republican candidates with any sense will avoid those attempts, but that qualifier still leaves plenty of room for Hairball to continue his bullying and name-calling, and he certainly will be chumming the waters with his racist rancor,  because that is all he has going for him. He certainly doesn't have the chops to attack her on her policies, which are ripe for attack, because they are a long way from traditional Conservative views (which to my way of thinking is a good thing).

As for Warren's Native heritage, it's obviously irrelevant, other than as it may or may not have affected her culturally. As I've pointed out many times here and elsewhere, experts in the biological sciences are skeptical of the construct of race, and I suppose that deserves a post. So much to write about, and so little time.

The issue is whether she used her claim of Native heritage to help her career. Anyone who has interviewed her for any position has said no. The institutions she worked for may have used it but there is not evidence that she did. The only relevance it has is how the Republicans use it in their campaigns.

All indications are that she did not receive any material gain or benefit from her assertion of Native American heritage....

Warren is now the poster child for the specious argument that affirmative action has damaged white people. My response to those who make that charge is the same:  Are you saying it would be to your advantage to black rather than white in America? And sometimes, I put it even more succinctly, would you rather be black in America?

Racist idiot Hairball went with his Pocahontas shtick because he said EW doesn't "look" very "Indian" – whatever the hell that means. I wonder if he would have done so if she still wore her hair as she did in when she was young:

That's EW 22 with her newborn daughter. Moral of the story? I guess life isn't always easier as a blonde.
