You might recall how everyone’s favorite translucent squaw Elizabeth Warren took a DNA test to silence the Donald once and for all. It didn’t quite turn out the way she’d hoped. Now, Fauxcahontas is singing a different tune. In English this time, not Iroquoian.
Check it out:
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren admitted on Friday that she is not a person of color, despite recently seeking to prove that she has Native American ancestry.
In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry. The test results showed that she has a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6–10 generations ago.”
But during a commencement address at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, Warren made clear that she does not consider herself a person of color.
“I’m not a person of color. And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin,” Warren admitted.
Well, whaddaya know. Lizzie’s not the second coming of Sacajawea. She doesn’t throw a mean tomahawk. Grandpa’s high cheekbones meant nothing at all.
Ever since 23 & Me bitch-slapped her off the totem pole, Liz has been living with a great deal of baggage. Also, glorious mockery. She’s still hoping to take a stab at the presidency in 2020. Which is why she’s trying to put this Native American fraud kerfuffle behind her. She’d certainly like to keep up the fantasy of her being the long lost queen of the Cherokee Nation. Alas, she’s forced to embrace her caucasianity out of necessity.
Elizabeth can try to downplay her racial boo-boo all she wants. Unfortunately, she’s not going to be able live down this screw-up anytime soon. She made her faux-ancestry an issue in the first place. Now, she has to live with it. Sucks to be her.
