Warren is done. The Kamala Harris faction, with the assistance of the Washington Post, has knocked her out of the running.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she was sorry that she identified herself as a Native American for almost two decades, reflecting her ongoing struggle to quiet a controversy that continues to haunt her as she prepares to formally announce a presidential bid.

Her comments more fully explain the regret she expressed last week to the chief of the Cherokee Nation, the first time she’s said she was sorry for claiming American Indian heritage.

The private apology was earlier reported as focusing more narrowly on a DNA test she took to demonstrate her purported heritage, a move that prompted a ferocious backlash even from many allies. Warren will be vying to lead a party that has become far more mindful of nonwhite voters and their objections to misuse of their culture....

In addition to the DNA test, she released employment documents over the summer to show she didn’t use ethnicity to further her career. And in a speech a year ago she addressed her decision to call herself a Native American, though she didn’t offer the apology that some wanted at the time.

But as Warren undergoes increased scrutiny as a presidential candidate, additional documents could surface to keep the issue alive.

Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.” Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it. Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.

As I said, it's a problem, but it doesn't mean she's done.

She'd be about the third worst option of those running for the leader. Her and Havard lied about her ethnicity though to gloat about a "woman of colour" being there. At least she supported Trump pulling out of of Syria.

And that's sincerely too bad, as she more than proved that she was a champion of consumer protection, and an enemy of oligarchs threatening American liberty and equality.

I'm just thinking back on all the earlier outrage over this and the usual hackneyed accusations of racism.

There was no evidence she tried to get any advantage from thinking she was native American. Now there apparently is. You should be encouraged that we change our minds given new information.

And the term "Pocahontas" as an epithet is still racist.

She's finished! :mrgreen:

Elizabeth Warren Admits To Wearing Paleface At College Costume Party

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Senator Elizabeth Warren is embroiled in controversy once again, this time after she admitted to wearing racially offensive "paleface" at a costume party back in her college days.

"As a proud Native American woman, I now realize that dressing as a white woman at that party all those years ago was insensitive and offensive," she said in a heartfelt apology video. "It was wrong of me to culturally appropriate white culture, as I am only 1023/1024th white European colonizer."

Ironically, the real Pocahontas wasn't Cherokee.

Is that a reference to dim-witted Jethro in the tv show "Beverly Hillbillies"?

So, you're calling ezras a dim-witted hillbilly?
