US Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren: At 1/32 Cherokee Indian - Is she a Native American or not?
Well apparently Harvard Law School has listed her as a Minority-Native American Professor. What is getting everyone's attention here in MA is that she may have used the minority status to qualify for set asides. Therefore, is she a Native American?
Technically, yes. Practically, no.
That's like saying "this ring is made of 4 karat gold!" No, that's not gold, that's copper when there's that little gold in the mix.
I think she should be able to claim Native American ancestry, but I wouldn't consider her a Native American. I do not know if there is a standard for degrees of separation from the ethnic ancestor.
No, I don't think so. If we were to undergo DNA tests , we would find that most of us are a mix of many ethnicities. If you found a sprig of grass in the desert, would you claim it to be a prarie? I think this is unimportant in the scheme of things.
Whether or not Warren is 1/32 Cherokee Indian is unknown, however I do know that woman is a blithering idiot. She is merely a stunning example of why America is on the cusp of collapsing. And if she is representative of the "best and brightest" America has to offer -- it is a wonder we have lasted this long.
But I believe that Warren proves that the American system of capitalism, within the framework of a Republic, shows that even though Americans are intellectually no better than the rest of the world -- it is only via a superior political and economic system in which the 1 percent have the intellect and drive to succeed who actually forced America into a position of greatness. Hence the 99 percent benefited by the exploits and desires of the 1 percent.
