Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test revealed that she does indeed have Native-American blood. But after the Boston Globe repeatedly botched the math, gradually reducing the proportion with each new bulletin, we finally learned that she is as little as 1/1024th Native American. For the record, that’s considerably less American Indian blood than the average white American of European ancestry has.
Some on the left are trying to say this “proves” her claim to Native American heritage. Warren even expects President Trump to pay up on his $1 million offer if she actually was proven to be Native American. But like the left’s attempts to bring back segregation in schools, treating women like delicate flowers who need fainting couches, and importing an oppressed Third World underclass to do their field and house work, it’s yet another throwback to the unenlightened past when the “one drop of blood” rule meant that having just one drop of black blood meant you were legally black. And they claim Republicans want to turn back the clock!
As for Sen. Warren, Harvard denies that she got set-aside privileges meant for Native Americans (Harvard has enough racial scandals to deal with now, over their alleged bias against Asian applicants.) But if she did, then she not only unfairly benefited from those programs, she took a slot meant for someone who really was a victim of racism. That’s the type of fraud that shouldn’t be rewarded with public office.
However, there may be a bright side to Sen. Warren’s now scientifically-proven “cultural appropriation.” A number of people have noted that this reinforces the traditional idea of America as a melting pot, something that’s been under siege by the left for years as they attempted to attain power by sowing suspicion, hatred and victimhood to divide Americans into warring tribes. There’s a new documentary that shows how out of touch with reality are today’s officially-mandated racial categorizations, grievance politics and the well-funded diversity industry that needs to keep racism alive to stay profitable.
If leftists can defend Warren by claiming that being 1/1024th Native American makes her Native American, then they’re admitting that virtually all of us can claim to be Native American…and black…and Latino…and Asian…and everything else in the rainbow. We’re all a beautiful mixture of all the races of the world, just in different increments. And we're growing more mixed with each passing year. We all have that in common. And that gives us something else beautiful that we have in common: regardless of where our ancestors came from or what our bloodlines show, we are all Americans.
That’s what America is all about, and it's time we remembered that that's what really matters.
