Yes, I know modern Indian tribes don't place faith in DNA tests very much, more cultural.

A lot of have Native American ancestry. Mine is Sioux. That does not make me an American Indian. If I wrote my race as American Indian on a legal document, I would be lying and perhaps committing fraud. All the rest of us, and there are many of us, who have Native American ancestry know perfectly well that we are not American Indians.

While Warren pretending to be an American Indian for 30 years wasn't that big of a deal, I don't think she gets a pass on it. I don't think she has a reasonable or good enough excuse for it.

...I think how this related to the " One Drop Rule " regarding black..." Sub-Saharan African "...blood (which was law in the past and tends to remain custom/ s belief).

Elizabeth Warren denounces senate vote she couldn't be bothered to attend. She's not interested in her current job, that's why she thinks she deserves a bigger one.

I have to agree with this. Having ancestry does not mean you identify with a particular group. George Zimmerman for example is half Mexican (and looks native American) but he self-evidently thinks he is white and probably puts white on his census/personal particulars.

He can put what he likes, he is not white. He's probably darker skinned than Obama who was called the US's first 'black President'

I thought half the hispanic community in America think they are white? SO driving a pickup truck with a rifle in the back and wearing a "I'm with stupid" t shirt covering tasteless tattoos doesn't make you white?

Warren isn't 1/2. She's 1/2024.

Have you ever tried making a post that isn't something negative about white people?

Prejudice agaist white people is a myth

In reality the so-called progressives get off on hating just as much as anyone else does.

They like to feel superior as well.

My point is millions of non-white hispanics self-identify as white...the worst are Dominicans and Cubans who are clearly part black ancestry but choose to self-identify as white/hispanic or white.

Not all Dominicans are part black (like my aunt). I know some who are fair skinned with brown and even blond hair.

But what is your point? And why the goofy disparaging description of white people? I have to be perfectly honest and say that I often think "wtf is with this guy"? when it comes to you and race, which you go on and on ad infinitum about.

Elizabeth Warren scares me. Fear her , trampling civil rights .. with out consideration.
Not particularily anyone group necessarily but a entire variety of them . Believe she was a lawyer at one time ? What are some of the worst things spoken of Lawyers ? This is a presidential candidate.?
Have seen worst of lawyers . Inspite of always hoping for the best. :?:
